According to a Nintendo press release, the cereal box is also an amiibo. It's features will let Super Mario Odyssey players "receive gold coins or a heart in the game."

The cereal has a mixed berry flavor and is full of colorful power-up marshmallows. So, basically it's Lucky Charms with a Super Mario twist.


If you're kids are into Super Mario and breakfast, they're going to love the new limited-edition cereal. Sure, it's loaded with sugar and probably has very little nutritional value. But let's not forget all the sugary cereal you ate when you were a kid, and you still turned out pretty OK.

The cereal will begin hitting store shelves across the U.S. on December 11th.
