Super Mario Maker Updates Adds Captain Toad & Birdo Costumes For Europe

Mario Maker

Just in time for the Christmas holidays Nintendo Europe has unveiled a brand new update for Super Mario Maker that brings three brand new costumes to the level building title.

If you boot up Super Mario Maker on Christmas Day you can score yourself a pretty sweet costume featuring everyone’s favorite adventuring fungus, Captain Toad.  All you have to do is complete a special event course to unlock Mario’s little buddy.

Another set of unlockable character costumes will be made available on New Years Eve thanks to two new NES Remix themed stages. Complete this pair of stages to unlock the Excitebike and Birdo costumes respectively.

We don’t know if these special events will make their way outside of Europe – perhaps its best that you boot-up your Wii U on Christmas Day just to make sure. Last week Japanese players were given the chance to earn a pair of currently region exclusive EarthBound costumes – Mr. Saturn and Master Belch.

Here are Nintendo of Europe’s original tweets announcing the costumes:



Join Captain Toad This Friday For A Bigger Adventure!

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker may seem to just be inspired by the Super Mario 3D World levels, but goes beyond those puzzle levels gamers fell in love with. I mean common, if nothing else it’s another Nintendo game that you can throw turnips at bad guys! I’ve missed that since Super Mario Bros 2 USA (or Doki Doki Panic in Japan). I grew up on titles like The Adventures of Lolo, so puzzle games like Captain Toad really appeal to me.

With boss battles and over 70 stages with a variety of locations, the game looks pretty awesome as it is. Even better, it seems to be a value priced title at only $44.99 MSRP. That’s pretty surprising since Captain Toad looks like a fantastic title! I guess Nintendo just wants to make sure as many people as possible get to experience this game and see the value of this concept. Read on for the trailer.Read More


Not A New Doki Doki Panic, But We’re Getting Closer

I would LOVE a new Super Mario Bros. 2 USA version (Doki Doki Panic) game. The content in NES Remix 2 that allowed you to pick up blocks as Toad in both Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Kirby’s Adventure brought back so many good memories. Shy Guy and Birdo are both still around even! Now, in the latest title Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii-U that spins off from Super Mario 3D World, you can even pluck turnips to throw at enemies? I’m in love! Read on for the trailer!Read More
