No Super Mario Odyssey Content Locked Behind Amiibo

While Nintendo has made some interesting decisions regarding in-game content being unlocked via their physical amiibo merchandise, they’ve confirmed Super Mario Odyssey won’t have any content locked behind amiibo.

The news comes via the game’s official website, which has the following message:

Super Mario Odyssey is compatible with all existing amiibo. Some of them unlock exclusive outfits for Mario, while others give in-game help. Try tapping different amiibo to see what you can get!

Note: All outfits can be unlocked in-game without amiibo.

The above Wedding Outfit amiibo versions of Mario, Bowser, and Peach (not pictured) are being made available for the game, however now we know they won’t restrict content.

Super Mario Odyssey launches for the Nintendo Switch on October 27th, worldwide. In case you missed it, you can find our exclusive, hands-on preview for the game (with video) here from this year’s E3.
