On today’s stream of Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3, a gameplay demonstration of Super Mario Maker was featured. The demo showed off the Amiibo functionality of the upcoming title. The Amiibo used were Marth, Wii Fit Trainer, and the newly-announced 8-Bit Mario Amiibo, which can be used to add special power-ups to the game. The first two give Mario themed skins with unique sound effects while the latter causes some interesting effects, such as giving enemies mustaches and adding a CRT screen filter to the graphics. You can watch all the footage above.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
