Nintendo reveals the truth about Toad's head, puts internet into meltdown

SUPER-MARIO-ODYSSEY-DISCOUNT Nintendo reveals the truth about Toad's head, puts internet into meltdown

The company finally put the question to rest by sharing an interview with Super Mario Odyssey producer Yoshiaki Koizumi on Twitter. After the initial screenshots of the bare-chested, mustachioed hero sparked a meme frenzy and a speed-running competition, more questions soon emerged: why does Mario have nipples, but no belly button?

Frankly, the bigger news and indication that the Mario series may be slipping into the body-horror genre comes in question two: Toad, a kind of servant to Princess Peach, isn't wearing a hat. And is Toad's head a hat or a head?

People were pretty shocked about the statement, since the Super Mario Bros. cartoon in the 1980s showed Toad taking off the mushroom (aka: his hat). Sellars has been accurate a few times-he announced the Nintendo Direct date and was right on the money there-but there's no guarantee this prediction will come to fruition.

As for other questions in the video, Koizumi is less forthcoming with firm answers.

To my mind one of the issues that contributed was the fact our debt had grown over the past few years. Carillion collapsed on 15 January when its banks refused to provide further funding.

"Well to be perfectly honest, I didn't really expect that to be a topic among fans", he said.

That's all Koizumi says on the matter, so if you were hoping for something with a little more substance, you're going to have to wait and see if this question is ever revisited.

"So that, as it turns out, is actually Toad's head", Koizumi said, stopping short of fully explaining the anatomy of the now confirmed mushroom-headed pal.

Are there things you designed into the game that fans haven't found yet?
