Today, during Nintendo’s latest Nintendo Direct the Japanese electronics giant showcased a shirtless Mario.
A scene from upcoming 3D platformer Super Mario Odyssey due out October 27th for Nintendo Switch presents the tiny Italian plumber in nothing but a pair of red and white polka dot swimming shorts and his trademark red cap as Mario parades about a beach. As you’d expect, the reveal has caused quite the stir on social media with some Twitter users losing their minds in spectacular fashion.
Below are some of the best reactions from Twitter as many attempt to wrap their heads around a nipple baring Mario.

The last offering actually poses a rather interesting question. Either way, players can feast on another offering of the apparently now sexy plumber on October 27th when Super Mario Odyssey launches for Nintendo Switch.
