An old friend of mine purchased a Nintendo Switch recently, and brought it down for the official “unboxing”. I was actually sort of looking forward to seeing this, as even though personally stopping all video game playing, I was hoping for some sweet nostalgia with games that are “innocent” and more gentle compared to what has become common fare. Boy oh boy was I in for an unpleasant surprise. The first game he popped in, was “Mario Tennis Aces”. I’m thinking, “cool, a little cartoony tennis game”. What I received (and my 9 year old with me), was an occult slam fest, far darker and more disturbing than I could have ever imagined. Sorry for the screen captures, as I didn’t have a capture device for impromptu capture, and this friend isn’t aware (yet) of what is really going on around us.
Maybe someone with greater knowledge can examine the symbology on the strips of wrappings on the characters in the below frames, and see if it’s just random copycat art, or actually something with a darker meaning.
