Paper Mario: Color Splash has a different washing machine model in North America and Europe
Here’s something rather strange about Paper Mario: Color Splash. In the North American and European versions, the washing machine design differs between the two regions. For those who are unaware, this is one of the “Thing” cards in the game.
It’s currently unclear why two unique models were prepared. This sort of makes you wonder what’s in the Japanese version!

To a certain degree, Paper Mario might just be the most popular spin-off series that the overall Mario franchise has spawned. What Paper Mario lacks in number of titles, it more than compensates with its fleshed out and devastatingly charismatic worlds – for the most part. Home to some of Nintendo fans’ favorite titles, it’s no understatement to say this collection of games might just be one of the best the big N continues to put out, which is why it so confusing they haven’t been treating it that way. With a more than all over the place prequel on 3DS, Color Splash brings this series back to the home console, and hopes to right the wrongs Sticker Star caused. Now, despite looking, feeling, and sounding just like Sticker Star 2, rest easy, because Paper Mario: Color Splash is anything but.
