Contrary to popular belief, Super Mario Odyssey was not the first game to give Mario visible nipples (left). Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which released one year earlier, featured a Miiverse stamp depicting Mario with nipples (right). pic.twitter.com/elPDhJlqgx— Supper Mario Broth (@MarioBrothBlog) October 17, 2018
Looks like we've been living a lie, gang. Turns out there was another game to show off Mario's nipples prior to Super Mario Odyssey. The honor now goes to Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which featured a Miiverse stamp showcasing Mario sans shirt. They may just be two tiny pixels, but it still counts!
