For some reason, Nintendo chose to update the Super Mario Odyssey box art with a tiny little change. The box art shows a bunch of glimpses from the game, and one of those was a sombrero-wearing Mario in the lower left corner.

Well, that’s no more. The sombrero Mario has been replaced with a swimming Mario, probably to show that the game has a water level too.

Here’s the new box art:

For comparison, here’s the old box art. Notice the change in the lower left section.

Let’s see how long it takes before someone makes this into a controversy over removing a Mexican-looking Mario.
