In Super Mario Maker, a new item, the Mystery Mushroom, allows Mario to take on the appearance of several other Nintendo characters, including Wii Fit Trainer, Marth, and Isabelle. While the number of characters at the moment is pretty small, it seems that’s only the tip of the iceberg. A screenshot of the game’s Mystery Suit screen reveals that at least 90 different characters will be available for players utilize. It should be noted that some of these characters will be unlockable throughout the game, while others can be unlocked using corresponding amiibo. The look also only applies to the Super Mario Bros. visual style and is purely cosmetic and does not affect how Mario controls.
It will be interesting to see which characters can be unlocked through the Mystery Mushrooms. Other amiibo characters like the Inklings, Pit, and Kirby seem likely, but what about other Mario characters like Daisy, Goombas, and Koopa Troopers? We’ll soon find out, as Super Mario Maker is out for Wii U on September 11.
