  • 8 Bit Mario Soft Toy
  • Mario “Breaking Bricks since 1985” T-Shirt (L)
  • Mario Hat.

CRT Effect

Let’s end with a neat feature from Super Mario Maker: you can add a CRT effect to the screen. Now, you’re probably going to say “Yeah, I know, I need the 8-bit Mario amiibo for that, right?”, and you would be right… and wrong at the same time! It turns out the amiibo isn’t the only way to unlock this feature: you can activate it during the loading screen of a level, by keeping Down press on the d-pad, and pressing B and A at the same time.
