Yes, companies make tweaks on their box art all the time, but with the controversy with Mario been called a racist because he was wearing a sombrero and poncho, and Nintendo removed Mario wearing a sombrero from the recent box art change does raise some suspicion. It's almost hard to tell if the change is a coincidence or on purpose for PR reasons. And we all know that Nintendo want to avoid any form of bad press. And never underestimate the outcry of SJWs. Despite them being a small minority, they are a very, very, very LOUD vocal minority. And a lot of companies these days been trying to cater to these loud mouth busy bodies because they're the ones who speaks the loudest. Especially on social media platforms such as tumblr, facebook, and twitter.
