Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Update Removes Offensive Gesture

Nintendo has updated the superb Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. While updates are common place for video games nowadays this particular update removes an offensive gesture from one of Inkling Girl’s animations. The gesture was the “Up Yours” sign, which presumably Nintendo wasn’t aware was a thing over here in Europe. Here’s the rest of the patch notes for the popular karting title.

      1. Not sure about “spastic”, but “shag” is just British for “fucking” (as in, the act of sex). At least according to my British media, not British myself.


  1. Interestingly, I found this person, a Japanese player, on Mario Maker who made some of the best, most insanely hard yet short levels and I got way into his levels (he had a lot on there) and when I finally would beat them, especially the most difficult ones, I started always saying “Up Yours” in a bunch of different ways because I figured two things… 1. That phrase might not be known as an insult in Japan, and 2. I could say it without any repercussions from Nintendo… Whether drawing it or coming up with some silly joke or phrase, it was “Up Yours” for days… but Mario Maker lost its luster for this adult, but that user had the best levels hands down. Almost makes me want to pick the game back up, but… Zelda

  2. I used to think this was another way of saying F*** You. Ever since I saw Sylvester Stallone do it in the movie, Rhinestone. Not sure why they act as if this was only a thing in Europe though. Man, it’s times like this that makes me hate updates. I want the one where she’s doing that. Nintendo censors FAR too much. Probably why I grew an appreciation for the Playstation.


      1. I disagree. When giving the up yours, both fists should be closed. Her fingers are wraped around her bicep. It doesnt look like up yours to me.


  3. Good thing Censorship Gaming covered this.

    Meanwhile, I’m glad a certain bloke under the name of “Weaboo Destroyer” is finally going to get banned soon. He was utterly obnoxious on that channel.
