Game just got patched. This is tragic, but I suppose half of Europe will no longer be offended.

Screenshots are mine. Just tested this with an old replay I had saved.

It means "up yours" in many countries, or more crudely speaking: "up your asshole".

I'll miss it...

It's use in Japan is different in the US.

Cultural differences, one is meant as an insult.

It's a gesture that means "up yours" in many countries. Nintendo just intended it as the Inkling grabbing her bicep, but that's how it looked to some.

A patch note released by Nintendo said an Inkling animation was changed. I immediately suspected this was the one.

So I booted up an old replay, and lo and behold...

That gesture doesn't get a lot of use in the United States. It is really underrated, much classier than flipping the bird which is so overused.

was it patched out in every version or only international versions?

also, people make noise to patch this but not the atrocious item rates? not enough people mad at blue shells, red shells and double lightning being spammed endlessdly and 1st place getting coins 90% of the time?

In Japan its meaning is a lot different.

That's a shame. I thought it was kinda fun. Well, at least it has been captured and can be preserved now.

Occasionally, the middle finger of the bent arm is also raised for added emphasis.

Heh, lol.

In my country (and several others) it means "My fist up your ass"

It's called a 'Bras d'honneur' -- and I thought it was a bit cheeky being in the game. I'll miss it though, I main Inkling Girl.

Nintendo changing it before the keyboard warriors take to Facebook and Twitter with their faux outrage...

But the capture button remembers, Nintendo. The capture button remembers.
