Japanese Super Mario Maker gameplay trailer gives us a look at Amiibo guest characters

Nintendo uploaded a new Japanese gameplay trailer for Super Mario Maker this morning. While several sections seem rather familiar, the majority of the video looks brand new.

The gameplay trailer, and Nintendo Japan’s newly-opened Super Mario Maker website, also includes a brief look at some of the game’s Amiibo-powered guest characters. Link, Wii Fit Trainer, and Bowser get a few fleeting moments to shine in the trailer and five more guest characters (Isabelle, Kirby, Marth, Peach, and Yoshi) made their debut on the website. But believe it or not, Nintendo plans to include support for 99 guest characters, available instantly via a tap of the corresponding Amiibo or unlockable in the game through the 100 Mario Challenge mode.

Even if the trailer isn’t entirely original (or in English), if you’re meticulously counting down the days until the Super Mario Maker’s September 11th launch like I am, it’s definitely a good way to spend part of your morning.
