Nintendo announced that within two days (6 October) We will deal with someone Official Nintendo Direct Which will be about all things related Super Mario Bros movie (We’re assuming that’s the title now, right?) On top of this exciting news, we got our first look at the movie’s initial poster, which shows Mario and the entire lotta Toads standing in front of Illumination’s on the Mushroom Kingdom.
While there are a number of details and Easter eggs that have already made us form in-depth theories, there is one notable absence from the poster that has sparked internet outrage: Where are the peaches? And we’re not talking about Princess Toadstool – what a foolish suggestion! – Oh no.

Taking a moment to undo the shock caused by the butt, both of them Tweet embed And the Tweet embed Took the time to get Mario out a bit:
See, as arvalis rightly says, Sonic got a complete redesign right after the trailer fell due to outrage online, and the same might happen again if enough people are behind (sorry) that reason. Hopefully, a reasonable explanation will be offered in this week’s trailer, although we somehow doubt that it will.
