Super Mario Cereal’s amiibo functionality in Mario Odyssey isn’t out of the ordinary

Posted on November 29, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

The fact that Super Mario Cereal is happening is a sight to behold in and of itself. But the fact that it also acts as an amiibo makes things even more interesting.

The Super Mario Cereal box teases that its sticker can be scanned in Super Mario Odyssey. However, it seems that it doesn’t really do anything that special as an amiibo.

Reddit user ziiigg, who shared the back of the Super Mario Cereal box earlier today, says that it works like most other amiibo in Super Mario Odyssey. That means when you scan the box, it can go look for Power Moons. There is just a slight, neat touch though – players are told that the Super Mario Cereal is a “delicious” amiibo.

    I didn’t expect much. I’m buying this for the cereal itself, anyway.

    For the best. I’d have been a little annoyed if there was exclusivity in a cereal box. XD

    Anyone remember the Mario cereal from the 80s and early 90s? I don’t recall seeing any as a kid. But there was Mario cereal, at least back in the 80s.

      The “Nintendo Cereal System” – it had Mario AND Zelda cereals!

        Yeah, I think I might’ve saw a commercial on YouTube or when I was watching one of the Nostalgia Critic’s Commercial specials.

    People are saying amiibo functionality on cardboard is a new thing. Remember those Animal Crossing amiibo cards?

    • Fan Bao

      Or the Mario sports superstar Amiibo cards.

      They are just NFC sickers. They’re a few cents each. You can even make your own with any phone with an NFC reader/writer (almost all Androids).

    great I don’t have a wedding Bowser amiibo and I’m stopping my amiibo collection at 11 figures this year… so this is a great way to get that feature without having to break my word. “Its just a box of yummy cereal honey, here try some :oP “

    Don’t care about that the fact that it exists at all if what is important. I want to try some just to try it not for the stupid amiibo.

  • Yeah but you can nickname a cereal box.
