    I always thought the 9 days thing was pretty silly for a level editor.

    What I don't like about this game is all the skins you can get only if you have the amiibos...
    But well, I'm only interested in the sprites, so I'll just wait that someone on the internet rips them...



    And besides, there's countless of Mario makers out there in the net for free, maybe they don't have the NSMB graphics,
    but they can do the same thing as this plus more.

    Actually I don't think this is the case, however amiibo does make it much quicker.

    Check the flag dumby
    You can unlock every costume through normal gameplay.
    As for the reason you would use this over free internet ones, is for global level sharing, exclusive item/character stacking, an engine that's actually close to the source material without the limitations of the original

    Interesting...
    I might get it then if the price's not too much...

    Guess those thing could be done with free ones too if you just program them, still, whatevs.
    One thing that can't be done in this tho, is giving each characters is own moves or what.
    I've played some of these engines with characters like Link or Megaman having the moves from their games...

    Well, looks like everyone that wants to be on an exploitable firmware has a decision to make now.

    As someone who has a Review Copy of the game, I can confirm that completion of the 100-Mario Challenge only unlocks one costume at a time, and that only includes costumes that don't have an amiibo yet.

    You're gonna need to start buying up amiibos, guys.

    I really want to get a Wii U and this game but can't justify spending £170+ just to play one game!

    Personally, I already set the time forward in order to unlock everything.
    There just wasn't enough content unlocked out of the box to make an interesting level with.

    I find it kinda odd that they didnt release this on 3ds as well. It actually seems more suited to portable play. maybe they are just trying to sell wii U's?

    I hear they were going to release it on 3DS, however the 3DS was too weak to handle the Ice Climbers Amiibo so they scrapped the whole port. /s

    Well it is Nintendo's NEW way of getting user to update! ;)
    It's been like that for the pass few major title... like here's a game (buggy as hell, missing content etc etc), then they advertise it with here's some new "update" features that we didn't include in the game because we want you to update your console ...paying for beta game on console??? :wtf:

    Somewhere, out there...
    You unlocked everything? How far ahead did you set time?

    How did you get a review copy that's different from everyone else's? Every other site/reviewer I've seen says all costumes can be obtained through 100 Mario Challenge.

    Side note: It's amiibo; no "s" at the end. Why do people have so much trouble with Nintendo's names?

    Let me guess you also correct people who say legos instead of LEGO™ brand building bricks?


    Anyway, it's silly that a game about making your own levels has stuff locked in the first place, but I guess it's good they shortened the time?

    Well, so far, I haven't gotten a single amiibo costume from the 100-Mario challenge. I calls it how I sees it.

    One day at a time, then I waited for the notification saying more content is coming soon (the one shown in the OP) before setting it ahead by another day.
