  • So imagine you are a bit of a chewer, and a bit of a nerd, and you have but one dream — to place the new Nintendo Switch cartridges in your mouth. Well, I have some awful news. The new Nintendo Switch cartridges taste terrible! So get that Super Mario Odyssey cartridge out of your mouth, and read on gentle soul.

    It began after a game journalist got an early change to try out the Nintendo Switch and put the cartridge in his mouth, and he Tweeted this out—

  • Kotatu then did a video where they attempt to place the cartridge in their mouth, and indeed, it seems like it left a bitter, bitter taste. Look at this poor pained man.

  • Nintendo’s exact quote —

    “To avoid the possibility of accidental ingestion, keep the game card away from your children. A bittering agent (denatonium benzoate) has also been applied to the game card. The bitter agent is non toxic.”

    But will this dissuade you from putting the video game in your mouth? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
