Following leaks, rumors, and potential confirmation that it actually exists, Nintendo has officially announced the new Super Mario Cereal.

The new cereal is coming via manufacturer Kellogg’s, and it’s set for a release on December 11th in your local markets. It’s worth mentioning this is a limited edition cereal, and will only be available for a limited time.

Here’s a look at the box itself:

As previously reported, the cereal box itself doubles as an amiibo – tapping it on your Nintendo Switch will let you get a heart or gold coins in the Super Mario Odyssey game.

Super Mario Odyssey is now available for the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
