  Nintendo, as we know, are the softly-spoken, utterly innocuous, family-friendly good guys of the gaming world. Down Nintendo way, even the hills and clouds have cute grins, the sun shines out of everyone’s assholes, and all is well.  

Don’t be fooled, though. As they say, it’s always the quite ones. That first paragraph reads like something the neighbors would say about a guy the police find with a bowl full of human eyeballs on his coffee table. You don’t fool us, Nintendo. We know what you shady bastards are really like. We’ve seen the Pokemon-themed sex toys. You deviants.

Anywho, yes. Here’s further evidence that they aren’t the squeaky clean good guys we thought they were. Down Europe way, Nintendo were cutting corners and passing off any old cheap crap in the name of profits. Well, not really, but y’know. In Kungsbacka, Sweden, wholesaler Bergsala handles all Nintendo marketing and distribution. And have done since 1981. They’ve done so, further, with an utterly shit Chinese-knock-off looking Mario statue outside.

There’s the before shot, up top. As for the after, the HQ has just unveiled its replacement, and it’s pretty damn swish. Much more like the main man himself:

So there you go. All’s well that ends Mario resemble-y, as they say.
