    Since when was a stereotype racist? It's a stereotype because it have truth in it...

    Also there is no proof they "censored" this cover at all. They might just wanted to show off a water level.

    I thought Mexican Mario was cool. If nintendo did remove/censor it I would be pissed. They need to stay with the original vision. Why would people be upset about a cultural icon wearing a sombrero ? He is representing a different culture, not doing anything "stereotypical". The world is going mad...

    Maybe it's a cover for a different country? Like how game case designs differ from region to region?

    To be honest I never found the representation of traditional Mexican clothing as offensive in any way (and yeah I live in Mexico).
    It's just a way people can pinpoint what place in the World they are referencing.

    It is not racist, it's just one of th ethings Mexico is known for, it's traditions and folklore.
    And the hat, poncho and other stuff is traditional Mexico without a doubt.
    Even people like Mariachis and such tend to dress up in traditional Mexican outfits to perform, and I don't see anyone mentioning they are being racist for dressing up like that.

    Is it racist?
    No because they are not making any kind of harmful joke about Mexicans in any way.
    It's just fucking clothes goddamnit.

    If Mexicans are okay with it, the rest of the world should just STFU, tyvm.

    But Chef Mario isn't new... He was featured in Game & Watch Gallery 2 in the modern version of the game Chef

    You're missing the point. It's not so much if it's new or not but if it offends someone and then X company feels the need to replace it.

    Yeah, it's like someone saying that chorizo and jamón are bad for me but I love it.

    If X person gets offended by a game cover, it's time for them to grow a pair and get over it. Too many pantywaist SJWs.

    Literally no one knows why they changed it. So what we're NOT going to do is sit here and make some crazy conspiracy theory about how these "big bad SJWs" you keep talking about keep ruining your games when the only thing that was changed was something very minor in the cover, and what we ARE going to do is move the heck on because this cover change is so insignificant, mexican mario is still in the game and theres much better things you should be doing with your lives.

    Swimming Mario should've had a tropical fruit hat no matter how pointless.
