Mario Tennis Aces features some incredible new models and renders for all of our favorite Super Mario characters, but one new character model has captured the imaginations of fans everywhere. Some crotch-eyed gamers have noticed a new feature added to Luigi; a new detail that adds a layer of realism to his design, and that layer was added to his shorts:
Yeah, if you look closely (but not too closely because that would be weird), it appears as though Luigi has a slight, shall we say, protrusion, forming around the front of his shorts. That's definitely a bulge. We have a bulge.
We weren't the only ones to notice it, either. Apparently this is a thing, and a topic of hot debate on social media. Some users are wondering why the bulge is there at all, while others are getting down to business, trying to figure out exactly how big his member might be. Check it out:
The difference between Tumblr and Twitter is that Twitter users are all upset about Luigi's dick bulge because they're so fucking basic and Tumblr users are doing Algebra to figure out that it's roughly 3.7" flacid and they're so happy for him to have a dick. pic.twitter.com/BlQynFRaZd— Christopher Butcher (@Comics212) March 15, 2018
The internet hasn't been this riled up about video game character body parts since Mario's nipple-gate. I don't think it's out of line to suggest that this may end up being quite a bit more controversial. People don't like ding-dongs. Video game boobies come and go, but the moment you tease a wiener, people start losing their minds. The reactions have been (predictably) hilarious:
And the artist hired to do this is thinking “I hope I don’t get fired cause of what people online think of my decision”— Matthew Loux (@mattloux) March 15, 2018
That’s not a dick bulge. It’s his pistol.— Amro (@iamamro) March 15, 2018

Meanwhile I'm admiring the amount of detail in the fabric patterns— James the Gargoyle (@BloatedGoyle) March 15, 2018
The internet is a weird place, y'all. What do you think about Luigi's bump? At first I was convinced that it was just a shadow, but now that I've done a few double-takes, I'm thinking it may be legit.
