Mario fans got more than they bargained for during last night's (September 13) Nintendo Direct.

More details were released about the first original Mario game for the Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Odyssey, but it's fair to say that fans weren't expecting the highly-anticipated game to feature a shirtless Mario.

And they had a lot of feelings about Mario flaunting his nipples on the sunny shores of Bubblaine in the Seaside Kingdom.

"If Mario has nipples then why doesn't Yoshi – please Nintendo this only raises difficult questions," one fan wondered, with another adding: "Everyone was so horny to play as naked Link they didn't consider the consequences. Now we have naked Mario."

In less important news, Super Mario Odyssey will feature a Snapshot mode which strips away the HUD and allows you to add a variety of filters to perfect your image, aimed at allowing you to easily create wallpapers for your computer or phone.

The Nintendo Direct segment also showcased Mario's new friend Cappy and Super Mario Odyssey amiibo.

It was confirmed during E3 that the game will be with us on October 27, earlier than the suggestions of a Christmas release.

Super Mario Odyssey marks a return to the open level designs and exploration of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, with producer Yoshiaki Koizumi also working on those games and Super Mario Galaxy.
