Europeans, get set to receive Mario Party 8 (again) on August 3rd. For those of you outside of "the know," the controversy comes from an included word that, really, wasn't too controversial. After having it removed, the game should now be squeaky clean and ready to hit UK retail shelves.

Some of the original release copies could still include the word, however. Nintendo states that they "are confident we have taken the correct appropriate levels and action necessary and in all new versions of the game there are no issues – however we cannot 100 per cent guarantee that every copy of the initial batch was returned to us and as such there may still be a small number of copies of the game in circulation."

Who can't wait to get their party on August 3rd?
