No more 'MR GAY'

A piece of art related to the I-can't-believe-it's-going-to-be-released-in-May Super Mario Galaxy sequel has hit the Interwebs, so I thought I'd post it here, too.

Isn't it wonderful? I'm especially giddy about the inclusion of the ambiguously gay Yoshi.

Speaking of things that (probably) are gay, a few astute NeoGAFfers (and Eric Caoili over at have pointed out that the sparkles in the Super Mario Galaxy 2 logo no longer spell out "U R MR GAY." Instead, they spell out "U R MI ALY."

Hmm, maybe this is Nintendo's way of saying Mario is OK with the fact that Yoshi is gay--and, as such, the general gaming public should be OK with it, too? Yes, I think that's exactly what it is...

Qua? Did they really spell that out? I never noticed.

Yep, they did--although it's debatable as to whether it was intentional. :)
