Your comments just reeks of white privilege, ignorant and racism.Choices are poorly designed on this poll. Nintendo should do what they want, if they want to include characters from all ethnicities, why not? And if not, it's fine as well. Is their IP after all. Although I prefer them to create new characters from scratch rather than updating old ones.
Or they can create a new Mario character who is a person of colour and a new IP starring a person of colours.
And? There exist Italian people of colour.
They did a pretty good job with Marina & Twintelle, so I’m not that worried.
Wow, guys I was just joking. As someone said, they’re Japanese versions of cartoon Italians who look very white. Im in no way actually arguing Mario and Luigi are “people” of color.
Those kind of jokes aren't funny.
There are. I'm just saying that using the excuse that everyone in Mushroom Kingdom is an ethnic Italian does not fly because Italy does not exist in the Mario Universe. Nintendo could give Mario a black biological brother and they wouldn't have to explain it. It's a children's fantasy land where logic and reason does not exist.
The joke was about anyone considering Mario Italian. I wasnt joking about misrepresentation, Mr Joker.
Doesn't exist because that's an ignorant option and dismissive to what people of colour are asking. There is no real reason to why the next human character can't be a person of colour, especially when none exist.
iirc the only POC in Mario Sunshine was the guy who runs fast?
I mean, that's already a problem since Nintendo tends to stick with the main 4 + Yoshi and Jr. occasionally, the obligatory gimmick character and loads of Toads.
A character as significant as Rosalina would be a good starting point, I think. She later got to be playable in 3D World, after all.
Gooigi isn't precisely human and Peachette isn't even its own character.
OG Daisy wasn't the dark skinned one...
