Nintendo Releases New Super Mario Cereal

  • Report: Nintendo to start offering in-game power-ups via cereal boxes

If you own Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch, you can use the box to earn in-game bonuses in the form of coins or a heart. The official statement describes the "Super Mario twist" of the morning meal as "colorful power-up marshmallows and a blast of mixed berry flavor in every box". Cerealously found references to a new cereal based on the critically acclaimed Super Mario Odyssey game.

Lifelong Nintendo fans have been quick to point out this is not the first time a cereal has been made.

If this is, in fact, true, one can expect these to start appearing in your local supermarket, which should be enough to lead to a nostalgia-driven sugar high after you jump into your favorite Super Mario game alongside a bowl of milk-drenched cereal.


Nintendo announced that this new Mario Cereal will be released in the United States of America on December 11th, 2017. Licensed cereal has gotten pretty lazy since the days of the Nintendo Cereal System.

“This powered-up partnership with Kelloggs is another exciting way for us to expand the Nintendo brand in unique and creative ways, ” said Tom Prata, Nintendo of Americas Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. Great for kids, and the adults that love Super Mario.

Hopefully Super Mario Cereal will be a big hit, and one day we'll get an actual Amiibo of Mario holding a giant spoon. In addition to bringing Nintendo-themed cereals back to store shelves, the release is noteworthy for another reason: The cereal box is an amiibo.
