Super Mario Odyssey Amiibo Announced

During their Treehouse​ Livestream at E3 2017, Nintendo announced three new amiibo for Super Mario Odyssey.

While specific details about amiibo functionality were kept quiet, it was confirmed that the amiibo will unlock new costumes for Mario, along with a sort of support mode.

Here’s another look at each new amiibo:

The amiibo for Super Mario Odyssey will launch alongside the game on October 27th.

    It never ends.

    For a short time, I thought they fixed the Amiibo supply and demand situation, but is clear that Nintendo never learns.

    When an Amiibo pre-order goes out of stock, on any online retailer, within half an hour from opening, doesn’t get restocked (IF it gets restocked) for months and is basically sold for double, triple and sometimes even higher the going price, exclusively from eBay on day of release. Then you know you fucked up.

    Seriously, unless Nintendo is behind at least half of those scalper accounts, they are losing a ton of potential sales from this, especially since people started to get so discouraged in tracking down Amiibo, and with things like the Powertag out, what’s the fucking point?

    Whoever marries her will be paying half a kingdom worth of alimony.

  • Nagato

    Pretty sure they went with the wedding these just to waifu up Peach for this amiibo, since those degenerate Japs are into wedding dresses for some bizarre reason.

    And so it begins the Triggering:

    LOL Dis gon’ be good.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Mario is just trying to help Bowser from getting Brendan Frasered.

  • Mr0303

    I don’t know about that. Mario is the definition of friendzone submissiveness.

  • Khirt

    But is her upskirt the real deal? or just sadness?

  • Bowser still looks like a jojo reference.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    It would be interesting if Mario and Peach’s relationship actually went some where in this one.

  • Donwel

    Wait, they’re complaining about racial stereotyping in a franchise that for the last thirty fucking years has had a fat greasy Italian with a seventies porno tash as the main character?

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Lol a lot of the comments are shitting on her(including Mexicans) to the point where she had to start muting.

    Someone should have told this cunt that its not 2013 anymore.

  • Bitterbear
  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    LOL love that classic

  • Personaknight

    What happens if you actually like that Mario represents a part of the culture with mariachi and wearing the clothing? Or are we just not allowed to represent anything that differentiates cultures?

  • Personaknight

    You know this could be just another kidnapping plot, but I think this might take an interesting step in the mainline universe. Bowser making the move to marriage and failing after Mario stops him doesn’t really leave him much else since he’ll know it won’t work and can’t really expect a life with peach beyond kidnapping.

  • Bitterbear

    This one is a gem:

    This is one of those idiots who think that it’s all about them. The ignorant fool doesn’t know that Mariachis can be found all over Latin America.

  • Malascus

    How to sell stuff in japan
    -wedding dress

    -neko
    -school outfit

    did i miss something?

  • Nagato

    Good call; seems like we have a beach or high school setting coming up next.

  • Brimfyre

    Kind of looks like Mario and Peach are set to get married and then Bowser takes over thinking he can marry her if he just dresses the part.

    I doubt that is the case but it would be cool if the game ends with an actual wedding. I don’t see why that couldn’t work. It’s not like having them be married would really fuck up the canon. He would just be saving his wife in future games, not his platonic love interest.

    Yeah, they will never go with that. Though it would maybe explain that all the babies in the Mario universe are actually their kids and those games take place after the wedding. lol. Or before….

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    I think Peach likes Mario and obviously he likes her.

  • wombat

    No mexican Mario amiibo?

  • Fenrir007

    Maybe they can’t marry because King Mario The Plumber wouldn’t be a very good future prospect for the Mushroom Kingdom. Would be bad for business.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Peach as a Crime Boss and Mario has a Cop trying to take her down. They fall in love. Rival Crime Boss Bowser also loves her. He also kills Mario’s partner/brother Luigi. Bam. Writing Nintendo’s for them. Where are my royalties!?
