Super Mario Odyssey wasn't the first game to show off Mario's nipples

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!

People think Shadow is cursing in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Come on, now. Do we all really think that Shadow would be spouting out foul language in this game or any game?! People claim Shadow is yelling out the c-word. I think we all know that's ridiculously far from the truth. As for what he's yelling, that I don't know. SEGA has been contacted for comment, and we'll be sure to fill you in on what they say.

End of the week, boys and girls. We made it through another one! Now we just have to get through this Friday and we can enjoy this wonderful weekend. It's a long weekend for those in the states, thanks to the 4th of July. I hope no matter where you live, you have amazing plans for the weekend! As for me, I plan to sleep! See you in a few, short hours.

Bad news...we probably won't have a new Parents Play episode for the next two weeks. Good news...this episode is SUPER-SIZED! Also good news...we even have a bonus person this time around! My Mom and Dad try to take home the gold in Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, but another competitor joins the fray to take them down. You'll have to tune in to see who it is!

Nintendo EU - Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games available now

The worlds of Mario and Sonic come together once more for 17 exciting events in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games™, out now on Wii U. With 14 official Olympic Games disciplines and three Duel Events, over 30 playable characters and the ability to play as your Mii, and local multiplayer for up to four players, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games™ offers everyone a chance to go for the gold!

Vie for gold medals in classic Olympic Games events like Boxing, Archery and the 100m sprint, using either the Wii U GamePad in single-player mode, or with Wii Remote button controls in multiplayer. All events take place in venues modelled after the real-life venues of the Olympic Games, bringing an authentic touch of Rio de Janeiro to the proceedings. Plenty of frantic four-player multiplayer action awaits, including the new Duel Events, which give familiar sports a classic Mario & Sonic twist.

Rugby Sevens is one of three sports, along with Football and Beach Volleyball, that comes with its own Duel Event. The action’s powered-up, familiar items like Bullet Bills and Chaos Emeralds are allowed, and chaotic multiplayer matches are guaranteed.

Alongside the new events comes the new Heroes Showdown mode: an addition for only the most dedicated Mario and Sonic fans out there. Competitors join up with Team Mario or Team Sonic and battle it out against the other side in knockout rounds. Events are picked at random for a real test of all-around skill, and each round a character from the losing team is knocked out until either all members are knocked out, or Team Captains Mario and Sonic are eliminated, so it’s all on the line to be the last team standing.

Over 30 playable characters from the Mario and Sonic series appear, including some that are exclusive to certain events. Sporting hopefuls can put themselves in the game as their Mii, and take part in tournaments for each event. Coins and rings earned through gameplay can be used to buy additional costumes from the Mario series or Sonic series respectively. Additional special tournaments, costumes and more can be accessed through the use of compatible amiibo (sold separately) which can be used after completing 25 tournaments.

Discover these exciting events and meet the competition at our official Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games™ website.

Let the games begin with Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games™, out now on Wii U!

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games™ is available from shops and as a downloadable version from Nintendo eShop on Wii U now. The Nintendo 3DS version is also available now.
