    Nintendo and Kelloggs have teamed up to take fans on a breakfast odyssey that will continue long after the cereal box is empty. In addition to collectable Super Mario Odyssey box art, each Super Mario Cereal box functions as an amiibo accessory, making breakfast a more playful experience.​

    So it kind of acts like a Peach amiibo? I was seriously hoping for a costume unlock or something. At least Mario with that spoon.

    there is? where is my gbatemps news about it!!

    i actually like the idea, i would love if they come with the idea of making the person get funny effects for different boxes, like you can get that "inflated head" cheat-code in one of thoose tags, while the other cereal box makes your game all black in white... the other one makes all people wear clown clothes.. etc..
    you know, instead of generic make the game even more easier crap like "you get 1 up"

    i've read in multiple places only a certain limited amount of these boxes will function as an amiibo and after that it won't anymore. Could be wrong information tho but just putting it here

    I have a feeling most if not all of them will be dumped and available from the usual places.

    Oh, okay, a circular argument. Nevermind, then.
