Mario Maker makes a mockery of Mario by turning him into Luigi.

Nintendo will release Super Mario Maker Sept. 11 and the game includes a new power up for the red-overalled plumber. Unfortunately, it gives him the ability to look really deformed.

The game will have a Luigi Mushroom, which is meant to make the titular hero more like his green-sporting brother and not only in the taller and thinner appearance. The 'power up' will also make him jump higher and have less traction.

The Mario wiki tells the origin of the new mushroom:

According to Takashi Tezuka, the form came from a bug that happened in development that made Super Mario skinny. It looks similar to a normal Mushroom with a short cap and a very thin base. It is randomly found in Question Blocks, along with Super Mushrooms, but Luigi Mushrooms are rarer. A Super Mushroom can't overwrite the effect of this mushroom,.. but they can fuse together.



Yeah, but it also makes Mario look like a hunchbacked buffoon! A lanky, awkward creep who slinks his way oilily into the upper reaches of the stratosphere only to grab gobs more mustache wax off the highest gross shelf.

Watch the weirdo do things here:



We're not the only ones who think this. Kotaku expressed their disgust well.

A pair of overalls, a fake moustache, a hat -- it seems like anyone can make a Mario video, but not like this.

Mario Warfare has even better production value than the 1993 Bob Hoskins Super Mario Bros., but that's not saying much.

Hopefully the full film comes out soon.

There are juggling acts, and then there are Super Mario Bros. juggling acts. You win, ADifferentSpin. You win at everything.
