Super Mario Maker costume options and "100 Mario Challenges"

Some new costumes have surfaced in Super Mario Maker, along with game play with some already announced ones.

One of the coolest features in Super Mario Maker is how Nintendo incorporated numerous costumes that user can dress Mario in, which span over tons of games. By incorporating the amiibo cards and figures, Super Mario Maker becomes an even more customizable game.

Costumes Shown in Game Play Video

There are so many costumes I'm excited for and while private copies of Super Mario Maker are slowly showing up, the costume options are spreading on the internet. As I scowered the web I came across a YouTube video from NintenDaan who showed off some of the costumes in action. 

While the shrunken down costumes look a bit silly at first, Nintendo went a step ahead and included some voice clips and sounds that the characters have done in previous games. Even completing a level by ascending the flag pole gives an array of sounds that pertain to that character, and their game.

The costumes shown in NintenDaan's game play video include:

  • Bowser
  • Isabella
  • Link
  • Luigi
  • Marth
  • Princess Peach
  • Yoshi
  • Wii Fit Trainer
  • Donkey Kong
  • Question-Mark Hiding Mario
  • Goomba
  • Pikmin

Be sure to listen carefully during the video to hear some of the sound clips and effects that Nintendo added for each specific character.New Costumes Surface

A few new costumes surfaced from Super Mario Maker today, and they include:

  • Sonic
  • Splatoon
  • Pit
  • Kirby
  • Waluigi

Gamers may be wondering how special costumes will be added to Super Mario Maker, and the answer is through completing the "100 Mario Challenges" within the game. To ignite the costume change Mario has to absorb a Mystery Mushroom, which then triggers the character change. The game is scheduled to be updated past the purchase product, will be for public purchase on September 11th. 

Are there any costumes you're hoping to see in Super Mario Maker? Which ones don't really fit in the game?
