Super Mario Maker fully unveiled, special edition with book announced, 8-Bit Mario amiibo too
With its release later this year, Nintendo showed us some more gameplay from the upcoming Wii U title Super Mario Maker.
If you aren’t already aware, Super Mario Maker gives you the tools to create your own Mario stages and share them with the world. Amongst the slew of features already revealed, some more were shown. And some of them seem just plain cruel. Well, if you’re a Goomba at least.
Creators will be able to put items and enemies in places where they don’t normally belong. Put a Goomba underwater and it becomes more like a static hopeless object to avoid rather than a soldier constantly walking left and right trying to end his foe. How about a Chain Chomp spinning around on rails? That look pretty deadly. That’s okay though, just put a Buzzy Beetle shell on Mario’s head and use it as a helmet for protection!
Also Super Mario Maker will have amiibo compatibility. For example, tap your Link amiibo and you can hide him inside a mushroom. When you get the mushroom in game Mario will then turn into an 8-bit link. Even the Wii Fit Trainer was shown off as a power-up. To unlock the characters though, you first need to complete a “100 Marios challenge” after tapping your amiibo.
A 30th anniversary 8-bit style Mario amiibo was also shown. The amiibo is rather big in comparison to most others and it transforms into a bigger Mario in game too.
It was also announced that each copy of the game will come with a special full colour book filled with ideas to get your stage making juices flowing.
Super Mario Maker will be available in Australia later this year on September 12th. Stay tuned to Vooks for more on Super Mario Maker.
