Report  Web desk : TOKYO: Nintendo has issued an update patch for its recent racing blockbuster Mario Kart 8 Deluxe . The Japanese gaming giant made a small change to remove a gesture made by one of the characters during a race. While putting a fist in the air with a hand on the bicep is pretty meaningless in Japan, over here in Europe - particularly Italy - it means something a lot ruder. The character, Inkling Girl, no longer puts her hand on her bicep when making the gesture. 02
