"Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" Update Removes Offensive Hand Gesture
According to Games Spot, the expression in the "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" involves in raising a clenched fist while the other arm holds the raised bicep. It was used by Inkling Girl as a celebratory sign.
However, the "Italian salute" is considered offensive in some territories, including France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, and much of Latin America. Hence, the gesture has been replaced by a simple fist pump, and photos from NeoGAF user Neiteio show the difference between the pre- and post-patch versions.
Meanwhile, a few other minor changes were also included in the update, such as starting positions in online races. It also changes the invincibility periods after a spin-out and Mii facial expressions, according to WCCF Tech.
