Nintendo’s purple mischief maker Waluigi caused some naughty scenes last May when a new render of him sporting a rose surfaced online. The same render was first shared during an episode of Nintendo Minute, and it seems it actually caused some drama at the office before the video was even released.

During a Q&A on the latest episode of the Kit & Krysta podcast, ex-Nintendo employee Kit revealed that he was actually “really worried” about featuring this render on Nintendo Minute. There’s no real backstory as to where exactly it came from, but it’s official — and Kit was worried the video team might accidentally leak something really important or break an embargo.

Here is our transcript:

“So we made the video… from the Nintendo Switch [Lite]…there was the new color scheme – and whether it was blue or purple was the big debate…so we did kind of a color test with a lot of different things and I remember one of the people doing the editing of the video was like, “Oh, our design team says they have this new artwork by Waluigi that they’ve been waiting to come out with, so we should use it” – and we’re like, yeah, that sounds great, and when they editing the videos and we were looking at the cuts I was like, ‘this is really unusual that they have this new art just lying around’ … like they always have a plan, it’s going out of here, that’s the date, and I’m like that doesn’t sound right. And I was starting to get really worried that we were making a terrible mistake… and that we were going to do something like leaks or as you know break an embargo on this artwork, so I was really prepared for that when this episode came out . ..This is just a random…updated rendering of the main characters.

Krysta, on the other hand, didn’t care because it was about Waluigi. So, here we go – this rendering even came as a surprise to people in Nintendo’s American offices.
