Last night, Mario was spotted in the latest Nintendo Direct without a shirt on. Just like that, the internet forgot about its dashed hopes of a new Animal Crossing announcement or Smash Bros on Switch. All that mattered were the sweet little Hershey’s Kisses on Mario’s exposed thorax.
MARIO NIPPLES CONFIRMED but no chest hair. I thought he was Italian? https://t.co/fU7xcHZGwu

Mario has nipples. Ok big deal. Did u think the yellow circles on his overalls were buttons? They've always been nipple pasties. Grow up.

Bringing things full circle, if there isn't a shirtless Mario skin in the next Smash Bros, people are going to fucking riot.
