Players discover incredible NSFW easter egg in Paper Mario: The Origami King

Collectable item No. 69 in the Nintendo RPG will have fans double-checking they're in fact not looking at a penis.
Nintendo fans spending time with the recently released Paper Mario: The Origami King have stumbled upon a very bizarre easter egg that no one is quite sure how it managed to get approved by a company that has taken the term "age-appropriate" so seriously they have disabled key features of their hardware, like when the Swapnote app available on the Nintendo DS at launch was suddenly turned off after users were found to be sending pictures and drawings, of well, anything you can imagine.

It seems though that they have slipped slightly with the latest Paper Mario game or maybe they are just having some sneaky tongue-in-cheek fun. In The Origami King, the (usually) family-friendly title has a wide variety of collectables for players to find scattered across the game's different regions. However, one caught the eye more than most, collectable No.69 and for a very specific reason.

Take a look.

Twitter user Brantendo was one of the first to notice this particular trophy while exploring the Desert Tower. While it's shaped like the tower itself, it's hard to deny that the trophy doesn't have a certain phallic quality to it, both from the general shape of it, the number it occupies in the list of trophies, and even its description, which references that it was "modelled after a legendary king!"

The Paper Mario series has hidden several double entendre jokes with sexual implications before. First compiled by Polygon, in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door there's a character that uses her body as a weapon, and... you know what, we'll let you read the text.

In Paper Mario: Color Splash there's an even more disturbing reference that can be interpreted in a few different ways, it involves Mario getting threatened while incarcerated by a Shy Guy, explaining how the only way this could get worse for our hero is if the game had a higher age restriction.

It seems this time around, the developers behind the RPG franchise decided to take a more direct approach, leaving no room for interpretation regarding the sexual innuendo they managed to sneak in into a kid’s game.
