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!).

    Now if I “accidentally” eat the amiibo will I gain all of its powers?

  • Envy-Noson

    Who still has milk bottles made out of glass?

  • NukeA6

    It exists in some remote areas especially if you want the freshest cow milk without the additives.

  • catazxy

    After all that game cards licking nintendo understood that there some money to be made in the food industry…And guess what, classic nintendo made it a limited edition, it will sell better then hotcakes.

    Kellogg’s? Yeah no thanks, don’t want kebab piss in my cereal

  • RPG

    Oh happy day!
    I hope I can find a box or two in the Netherlands.

    Limited edition cereal, I can already hear the greedy scalpers rubbing their hands together.

    Have you niggas never heard of Oberweis?

  • NukeA6

    Oberweis is not in my region.

  • RetroGamer

    Lay a switch on the table and pour milk close to it…What could possibly go wrong?

  • Arenegeth

    This is the first time I’ll order cereal online, since I doubt these will make their way to local grocery stores.

    I’ll get one, so I can use it as an amiibo and eat the shit out of it, and I’ll get another and keep it sealed so I can fork it on eBay in like 20 years from now for lots of money, since I’m sure due to its limited and food related nature, it will be a very sought after collectable in the future.

  • wait what LOL

  • IIRC Kellogs EU confirmed the American release but didn’t confirm one for there

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    I heard that clear containers are bad for keeping the milk the freshest.

    A factory worker was caught pissing in the batch of Rice Krispies at a Kelogg’s factory and uploaded the video to World Star Hip-hop.

    Yeah, I found the same thing, which struck me as odd. Hopefully others will get a chance to try it as well.

  • Snorlaxation

    true, but unlike with tech, cereal will only hold it’s value for so long.
    although, there are still people obsessed with amiibos, so..

  • Snorlaxation

    my family bought some glass containers, so they usually pour any excess milk into those.

  • RetroGamer

    Didn’t know about this until now. Ignorance really is bliss. 0_o

  • Psichaos

    I get milk from a local dairy farm and they still bottle in glasses. Best fucking milk you’ll ever drink comes directly from the farm itself, so make the extra trip to your local dairy farm and get yourself some good ass milk rather than that grocery store shit.

  • So does this mean Nintendo will slap reviewers on YouTube with third party claims as well?

    If you consider shiting blood a power then ye

  • Matz

    I also would like to know if the cereal will be available in other countries, not that it matters because I’m visiting the US during the Holidays and I might buy a box or two to try it there and bring it to home, I just hope that we don’t have any scalpers issues with fucking cereal boxes

  • InkViper

    You would be surprised at the degeneracy of collectors, especially the ones who collect food!



  • RPG

    Oh, you just KNOW it is going to happen :(.

  • NeoTruth

    eating toad amiibo same as eating shrooms?
