Hi!

I found a grammatical error in the skill trees of Mario + Rabbids. There are several instances where the word 'less' is used when it should be 'fewer'. Here's an example:

I know I'm nitpicking, but I thought it might annoy enough people that this would be worth mentioning.

Hi Fredvdp3!

Though "turns" can be counted (and thus "fewer"), the actual super-subject in this case (but it works with the rest as well) is Mario's Hero Sight (cannot be counted, thus "less"), making these cases a bit odd. As such I think both fewer and less could be interchanged and still be grammatically correct.

I'm quite sure "Mario's Hero Sight" is irrelevant since that's not what's being quantified.
