U.S. magazine Nintendo Power has revealed that popular suits from Super Mario Bros. 3 will be a part of 5th Cell’s upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS game, Scribblenauts Unlimited. The main character, Maxwell, will be able to wear all kinds of suits – including a frog suit, tanooki suit, hamburger suit or dog suit. For the first time in the series, players can give their creations a gender; for example, you can create a male cheerleader.
During E3, video game journalist Neal Ronaghan played New Super Mario Bros. U for Wii U and, while he was playing, asked a Nintendo representative where to find the Flying Squirrel suit. The representative corrected him by saying that Mario doesn’t wear suits but instead transforms into something after he touches a special item. Ronaghan then asked if the claim is a response to PETA’s attacks on Nintendo’s well-known plumber and the representative said, “No, it’s always been that way.”
Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed to gaming press that Mario won’t get getting any additional suits in Super Mario Galaxy 2.
Whilst there will be an array of special power ups for the incredibly cute Yoshi, Mario himself won’t see any additional special abilities from his incredibly awesome suit.
