If you’ve even been online over the past week, you know that P.E.T.A has recently made Super Mario 3D Land a target of their most recent campaign. The game sees the return of the classic Tanooki Mario suit. Believing that any press is good press, P.E.T.A decided to paint Mario as a animal abusing villain. They even went as far as to create a short game where a skinned raccoon hunts down the blood drenched, Italian menace.
“Fuck you Mario! This skin belongs to animals.” says the hero upon the culmination of his tedious, unfun pursuit.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time video games have been subjected to P.E.T.A’s crazy antics. Having a relevant outlet for such a topic, I decided to contact P.E.T.A with the hopes of ambushing them with the kind of hard hitting journalism that you deserve to read.
