Super Mario Maker for 3DS amiibo support listed on Nintendo’s website
Update (11/8): Nintendo has now removed Super Mario Maker for 3DS’ inclusion as an upcoming compatible amiibo game. Make of that what you will!
Original (11/7): Super Mario Maker for 3DS may feature amiibo support, if Nintendo’s website is anything to go by. It’s listed as an upcoming compatible game on the main amiibo website.
Nintendo previously said that Super Mario Maker for 3DS would not include the Mystery Mushrooms. In the Wii U version, these allowed players to unlock new costumes with amiibo, though they were also available through other means. The Wii U game also made use of the 30th Anniversary Mario amiibo to add a Big Mushroom power-up to courses.
It’s unclear if Nintendo’s website is simply an error. If it’s legitimate, hopefully we’ll hear about how amiibo functions in Super Mario Maker for 3DS soon.
