As they showcased Super Mario Maker at the E3 Digital Event and announced the release date, it was also revealed that not only can you create your own crazy Mario levels, but you can play through them as loads of different characters to add to the madness! Tap an amiibo in and collect a special mushroom to get “Costume Mario” in order to play as an 8-bit version of the amiibo character. 8-bit Wii Fit Trainer? Sure thing. Link? Of course! Kirby? Why not! Mix up your favourite Nintendo worlds.
Furthermore, the large 8-bit Mario amiibo was confirmed and revealed that using it in the game will allow you to become a large Mario in-game. All in all, a pretty nifty addition to an already awesome looking game. What do you think?
