Super Mario Maker is getting the original Pokemon trio

20th Anniversary rages on

I have to say, Nintendo is doing a bang-up job of celebrating Pokémon‘s 20th anniversary. Hell, there’s already been a ton of fanfare (the Mew event, tons of merchandise worldwide, amiibo restocks, a Splatoon Splatfest, a new ‘mon reveal, a free stream of the first film, new Nendoroids, Pokken Tournament on Wii U later this year, Detective Pikachu, Pokemon Go, and a special retail celebration next weekend) and it’s just February! If only Nintendo did the same for say, Metroid. Oh, and by the way, it’s Metroid‘s 30th anniversary this year — happy 30th!

Anyway, Super Mario Maker keeps the good times rolling with Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle costumes. Simply complete the event course, and you’re good. I love the three themes between the levels and the retro sound effects!
