A Reggie Fils-Aime amiibo won’t be coming out anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean Nintendo can’t make a joke about it! The company’s American subsidiary did just that with a new post on Facebook yesterday. View it below:

Nintendo says Toads are genderless, Toadette and Toad aren’t siblings

Interestingly enough, Nintendo did not truly settle on a specific gender for its Toad characters from the Mario universe. That’s despite the fact that Toad takes on the appearance of a male and Toadette has female characteristics.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker producer Koichi Hayashida told GameSpot in a recent interview:

“This is maybe a little bit of a strange story, but we never really went out of our way to decide on the sex of these characters, even though they have somewhat gendered appearances. But I think what I can say is that Toadette and Toad are not siblings — perhaps it would be more accurate to say they are adventure pals. And that’s certainly true here [in Captain Toad].”

Hayashida also went on to clarify that Toads are not mushrooms. When GameSpot brought up the resemblance and nomenclature, Hayashida noted:

“This particular riddle might stay unsolved. That’s one of the great mysteries of the Mario universe.”

Update: Bumped to the top. This is an interesting twist! Was the whole stunt staged? New findings certainly point in that direction!

Listings for castings were discovered on LA Casting last week:

Karissa’s full name also seems to be “Karissa Bannister”. She’s an actress who appeared in a Ford commercial.


One GameStop outlet held an event for Smash Bros. Wii U yesterday. That wouldn’t be news under most circumstances… if not for “Karissa”!

“Karissa”, a 10-year-old girl, managed to beat several top West Coast Smash players at GameStop’s event. You can get a look at Karissa dominating the competition in the videos below.
