So how about that surprise Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct? We’re getting a whole bunch of goodies for the 35th anniversary of our favorite mascot’s premiere, and what ’80s kid’s birthday would be complete without some fancy toys? The presentation showed off some sweet ARG RC cars, but there was another plastic surprise that they saved for the after-show: Cat Mario amiibo figures, including Peach!
As you can see, there’s a figure for Cat Mario and Cat Peach, and they’ll tie in with Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. There’s no word on what these guys will do yet, but I’m excited for the possibilities. At the very least, you’ll be spotting at least a couple of these guys at your next post-pandemic Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo tournament. Those are still a thing, right?
At least the packaging is nice. I’m almost surprised that they didn’t go for a flocked finish on the Cat Mario amiibo and the Cat Peach amiibo, but the stucco look is good too. Honestly, it’s great to see that amiibo isn’t dead and that one of the best games on the Wii U is finally getting some figures of its own.
These Cat Mario amiibo figures will be available on Feb. 12, 2021, alongside the release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. Will you be picking up them up? Let us know!
