Could there finally be a use for that Pikachu Amiibo?

The Japanese website for Super Mario Maker has updated with a bunch of new information about the titles.

The main feature is the "Costume Mario" that shows off several of Mario's transformations including Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Kirby and Isabelle from Animal Crossing. A separate update to the Amiibo page shows that all Amiibo - including the Pokemon ones, which were previously restricted to Smash Bros and minor updates - will be usable, but all of the costumes will be unlockable through the game's 100 Mario Challenge mode.

The game will also support the Pro Controller, Classic Controller and Wii Remote for playing of levels, and the save file will allow for the saving of 120 levels.

Finally, after all these years, Bowser can rescue Peach from himself!

Just because I *have* to complain about something...

Why 120 levels?  Seems like a pointless restriction.

I really like the Amiibo idea with this game.  But I wish they would have made something like Super Mario Crossover with the Amiibos.

Even if it was simple things Like Link Throws a Boomerang that comes back...and Mega Man can Slide and Charge Shoot.  It would add so much depth to the level creation process knowing that you could design a level with a specific character in mind. 

Well, maybe that can be added for the eventual Super Mario Maker 2 game.
