Censorship[]

In Paper Mario: The Origami King, the first trapped Toad Mario and Olivia save complains that Toads have been poorly treated. The Toad says, "What do they have against Toads! It's not fair! Toads have rights! This is Toad abuse!". In the Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese versions, the quotes about rights and freedom were removed and replaced with, "Return the smooth appearance to Toads! Give back the easy life to Toads!" when translated into English, referring to his paper body. People who responded to the discovery on Twitter considered the change "unspeakably strange", and some wondered if Nintendo had made these changes because of the Hong Kong national security law. The original poster of the comment has received some criticism from people arguing that China could not have interfered and the translation could be a pun. Nintendo released no comments about the situation.
