We would like to inform you about the language error of the song “Mario Drawing” on the digital clock of Game & Watch Super Mario Brothers System.
Game & Watch: When Super Mario Bros. is released this week, it will be released with a few language errors. Nintendo explained the situation on its official website today.
The “Mario Drawing” songs that appear on digital clocks display the wrong set of lyrics depending on the language you choose. French, Spanish, German and Italian are affected. However, English, Dutch, and Japanese are always displayed correctly. It is possible to access the correct lyrics, but the languages mentioned above are confused.
