Best translation error ever.

It does give a new perspective on Paper Mario though...seperate beds...Mario falling asleep when Luigi is trying to tell him about his day...Mario stalking Luigi when he's writing in his diary, as if he thinks he's sleeping on him with Wario and has to monitor his thoughts...relationship problems.

Uh oh, someone get Nintendo PR on this right away! Who needs to worry about anti region-locking fans when you've got rumors of Mario and Luigi being gay lovers circulating with hispanic customers!

Seriously though, that's a hilarious case of a gaming site taking a parody one seriously.

I apologize, "sdpnoticias" is NOT a parody/joke site. It's a legit site. But unfortunately their source is INDEED a joke site, which is "Ciencia Seminal".

So yes, "sdpnoticias" is also getting Trolled.

The source is a (I think Argentinian) blog that only posts fake news (http://cienciaseminal.com/2013/07/19...vela-miyamoto/). This is hardly thread material...

A sample of the material in such article:

Haha, wow at the supposed quote from Miyamoto. In response to someone asking if Mario and Luigi are gay:

Esa fue la intención original del juego. Era un juego cargado de signos de la cultura gay, Luigi y Mario eran una pareja gay tratando de enfrentar los retos de una sociedad que los rechaza, más adelante al introducirlo al mercado internacional se adecuaron algunos contenidos e intenciones para llegar a un público occidental, pero si observan con cuidado, muchos de los conceptos originales están presentes."

Basically says that yes, that was the intention of the original game. It was a game loaded with symbols from gay culture, Mario and Luigi were a gay couple facing the challenges of a society that rejects them. If you look closely, many of the original concepts are still present today.


The next part of the article takes the cake though.

A dude named James Gardner from the University of Wisconsin assures that the game is full of clear references to LGBT culture. Like the flag poles and goombas being phallic in nature.


Hahaha, wtf.

SDP Noticias is not very reliable...also the other sources mentioned, they are very small web news pages that nobody cares what they say , usually they just take rumors as real news and rarely check their sources.

but how oblivous you have to be to the videogaming world to actually believe that Shigeru Miyamoto claimed Mario and Luigi are gay??

At least 4 sites trolled hard and possibly more to come. you have to be incredibly stupid for that.

Some gay friends are celebrating (for real!) that nintendo made the right choice and made Mario and Luigi a couple.

this is crazy.

Anyway, even if that article is bullshit, I think Luigi is very effeminate, his voice, movements, etc. He even has a a pink costume in Smash Bros.

Extremely low-level "journalism" at work. See some controversial news? Copy them and gain hits.

el principal enemigo de Mario y Luigi, Koopa, representa la masculinidad exagerada, el machismo y la intolerancia.

Mario and Luigi's main enemy, Koopa, represents an exaggerated masculinity, sexism and intolerance

I mean, KOOPA??? they sure meant bowser but they don't have a fucking clue.
