It feels like Nintendo’s been a little quiet on Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, considering that the game is launching less than a month from now. Of course, we mostly know what to expect from the core experience, but there will still be some exclusive new features, such as the tough Medal Challenges. Interestingly enough, it seems that the game will have some sort of amiibo support, too, though how this will be implemented still remains a mystery.
Nintendo’s official amiibo compatibility page features a list of most Nintendo games that feature amiibo and how they work in each game, and Super Mario Maker 3DS has been spotted at the bottom next to Breath of the Wild in the “Upcoming amiibo-compatible games” section. Bear in mind that Nintendo has said that Mystery Mushrooms won’t be featured in this port, so all the different character sprites from the original are out. Perhaps each figure will unlock a level centered around that character?
What do you think? What will amiibo do in this game? Will you be picking it up? Drop us a comment in the section below.
