Super Mario Fans Aren’t Satisfied With Luigi’s “Dusty” Wii Render


Super Mario fans aren’t happy with Luigi’s “dusty Wii render” that was used recently for Nintendo’s New Years Celebration Tweet.

As we move into 2022, developers and publishers love to celebrate by posting artwork or screenshots that tease new projects or just celebrate that we’ve entered a new year. Nintendo is one of those companies to join us, but the response to the render they used for Luigi might make him wish it didn’t bother.

On December 31, just before the start of 2022, Super Mario UK’s Twitter account posted an image saying, “Happy New Year everyone !”. The image has “2022” on it, with a Mario rendering in each of the numbers. Isn’t that cute? Well Nintendo fans don’t seem to think so, instantly poking fun at some of the renderings used.

PLAYER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Although Mario gets away with being his super-detailed render of Super Mario Party and Peach has his 3D World design, Luigi ends up with a 2007 render, presumably of New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS. Interestingly, Toad looks like he has a whole new rendering, leaving a lot of people wondering why Luigi has the short end of the stick.

” Who cares ? Some of you might ask yourself. Well, according to Twitter, many Nintendo fans have noticed the difference in render quality and have made a habit of pointing it out. Twitter user DynamoSuperX retweeted it, saying “not them who give luigi that dusty look of wii 2007”, gaining 5.7k likes in the process.

During this time, Kyle DeNigris tweeted about the art, highlighting the years each of the renderings were made, saying, “I’m sorry but–“. This Tweet has taken off, with over 16.4,000 likes in the past few days. Looks like Luigi fans want blood.

Seriously, this isn’t the first time the rendering issue has arisen. Nintendo quite frequently posts images featuring Mario character mashups with completely different renderings and styles, while simply ignoring the fact that it contains brilliant images of Luigi from Super Mario Party and 3D World.
