It seems like Nintendo is milking amiibo for all its value (pun undoubtedly meant).
Today in ‘this is unconfirmed, but, like, why would you make this up’ – the cereal-loving weblog Cerealously (which, by the way in which, is an excellent identify) appears to have a scoop – once more, pun meant, sorry – on an upcoming Mario-themed cereal.
According to blogger Dan G’s digging, there are a number of items of proof that Super Mario Cereal is coming, and, extra importantly, that purchasing a field offers you entry to sure in-game advantages. Dan was even capable of submit a shot of the field, which proudly proclaims that the field “is a special amiibo” (click on the hyperlink above to see it). Presumably it’ll function just like the amiibo playing cards Nintendo launched for Animal Crossing and some different video games.
The cereal itself seems pretty unhealthy, with its large lumps of ‘power up marshmallows’, however there is perhaps some advantages for Mario if you happen to select to eat it.
What sort of powers might the field grant Mario? New powers? New outfits? The capability to remodel right into a bowl of cereal? It will in all probability simply replenish his well being or one thing, however we are able to dream.
Of course, none of that is confirmed – it’d merely be an especially good photoshop. But it’s value holding a watch out – amiibo completionists might want to snap up a field if it ever hits cabinets.
