There’s not a month that goes by where we hear about Nintendo issuing a cease and desist notice, or the company finds itself in another legal battle, and now thanks to Twitter user Meatball132, an interesting observation has been made that will potentially go down like a lead balloon at Nintendo HQ. It’s surrounding Super Nintendo World and the design of the recognisable Mario Cactus (or rather, Cacti) in the new park. It seems the designers at Universal Studios Japan have accidentally referenced the wrong design and have settled with one from a fan made Wii mod called ‘Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii’.
It’ll be interesting to see if the design team work quickly to redesign the Cacti in Super Mario World, but we can’t imagine Nintendo will be pleased to see a mod’s design in their official park. How ironic.
