Unlock all the epic costumes in Super Mario Maker
With the release of Super Mario Maker this past week, the buzz isn't just about level creation - it's also about the multitude of character costumes that are unlockable. Featuring famous characters from Animal Crossing, Legend of Zelda, and Kirby, all your favorite nostalgic figures are present.
Unlocking the 100 Costumes
If you're a perfectionist and want to unlock all 100 costumes available in Super Mario Maker, there are two options you have. Either you have to get the 100 amiibos and sync them with the game, or complete the "100 Mario Challenge Mode". The amiibo option can be quite costly (going over $100), while the 100 Mario Challenge could prove to be a difficult route.
There are a ton of randomly selected user levels in the 100 Mario Challenge, with 100 lives available to complete them all. The levels are pulled from all over the world, and require the Wii U to have a connection to the Internet to use the costume unlocking mode. Without an internet connection, a "10 Mario Challenge" is available as a preview.
It's good to remember that the costumes are only playable in the original Super Mario Bros. level setting, and aren't available throughout the entire game.
