A new video shows all of the different amiibo costumes Mario can wear in Super Mario Maker.

We’re just a few days away from the release of Super Mario Maker on the Wii U, and while we know we’ll be able to use amiibo to turn Mario into 8-bit versions of whatever figure is used, we haven’t seen all of them in action. Today, we’re seeing all of the available amiibo in Super Mario Maker in a YouTube video uploaded by Pogoplay.

The video, which was taken down but uploaded by another YouTube user, shows a level that is completely filled with blocks with mushrooms that will change Mario to various amiibo. The start of the video shows some well-known amiibo being used, like Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, and Pac-Man. But as the video progresses, we catch a glimpse of some more obscure characters like a Goomba, Shy Guy, and even a crab from the original Mario Bros.

The video clocks in at around 8 minutes, and if you consider this to be spoiler territory, then feel free to give it a pass. But it’s amazing just how many characters Mario can transform into in Super Mario Maker.

      Not watching this! Also, Doesn't Nintendo not want them spoiled, like...there's an embargo?

      So you need to own all of those amiibos in order to unlock them as playable skins for Mario in the game? I don't have a single Amiibo, so if I wanted to do this it would get really expensive :(

        Nope, you can unlock them by playing the 100 mario mode. Not sure if you can get 100% of them, but as far as I've read the vast majority can be unlocked that way.

        Also the costumes only work in The original Sumper Mario Brothers skin, which is my least favorite, so meh.
