Mario Party Superstars palm warning

Mario Party Superstars is just days away. And with its impending launch comes memories of classic minigames. I certainly remember ones like Tug o’ War from the original Nintendo 64 game. Older readers might recall how many gamers used their palms to rotate the control stick faster in order to win the event. This lead to many bruises. It seems like Nintendo remembers this catastrophe, too, as it has added a palm warning to all rotating stick minigames in Mario Party Superstars.

Why add these dangerous games to Mario Party Superstars in the first place?

Credit goes to Twitter user @KirbyCheatFurby for discovering the warning:

That message is not going to stop anyone who wants to beat their friends. I guarantee it.

Back in the Nintendo 64 days, the Big N issued gloves to players to avoid any lawsuits after reports came in people were messing up their hands. In future Mario Party titles, rotating stick games were done away with altogether. Hopefully, Nintendo will be adding protective gloves, free of charge, to all retail copies of Mario Party Superstars.

Enthusiasts, what are your thoughts on the palm warning in Mario Party Superstars? Are you going to ignore it like me, all for the name of glory? Let us know below.
