‘Mario Kart’ Patches Out Inkling Girl’s Offensive Gesture


If there’s any game that gives players an excuse to give each other obscene gestures after a few rounds, it’s Mario Kart. You don’t play Mario Kart to make friends. You play to win.

So, when Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came out and had one of the Inkling Girl’s gestures for taking down the competition had her hand grabs her bicep kind of like the way Europeans say “Up Yours,” it actually fit pretty well with the mood of the game.

But, worried that it may be seen as rude or offensive to some players, Nintendo recently patched out the gesture. in the latest version of the game.

Now how will character react when I get knocked off of rainbow road for the billionth time?
