Nintendo and Kellogg’s have announced a partnership that will see the release of a Mario themed cereal. The cereal, in addition to having collectible Super Mario Odyssey box art, will also function as an amiibo.
“This powered-up partnership with Kellogg’s is another exciting way for us to expand the Nintendo brand in unique and creative ways,” said Tom Prata, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. “We are always looking for new opportunities to bring smiles to people of all ages, and this is a fun way to kick off the day.”
Players can tap the box onto the switch (like other amiibos) and receive gold coins or a heart in Super Mario Odyssey. The cereal itself is even Mario themed, with the box containing “colorful power-up marshmallows and a blast of mixed berry flavor in every box”. The cereal is set to hit stores in the US on 11th December, but there are currently no plans for a UK release.
