Basically it contained the word spastic, which can be considered offensive to those with learning difficulties. I find it funny however that it wasn't noticed until AFTER release.

I'm moving this out of General Discussion, because it doesn't belong there. Also, do you have any reliable sources that aren't forums?

If it's true, it's pretty stupid.

Edit: Looks like it's true, but only in Europe.

Location: I'm stuck somewhere... Not quite sure where that is though.
There are many things deemed offensive in games, but most of those games aren't pulled from the shelves. Maybe Nintendo is trying to stay clean like they have for so many years. :)

All I know is that I know nothing.
