Nintendo has announced that J-pop idol metal band BABYMETAL will be appearing in the build-your-own Mario game “Super Mario Maker” as playable characters.
“Super Mario Maker” is a side-scrolling platform game creation system, which allows players to create and build their own course from the Super Mario Bros. franchise. During the game, Mario has the ability to transform into various characters by getting the “mystery mushroom”.
In this collaboration with BABYMETAL, players will be able to unlock the new costume set featuring the trio joined together in unison once they get the right mushroom. It is also possible to get the BABYMETAL costume once the player clears the “METAL RESISTANCE” event course. The voices of the band members were also recorded to give additional flair to the special character.
The BABYMETAL character will be available in the game starting today.
