Super Mario Maker Gets A GameCenter CX DLC Costume

The Japanese version of Super Mario Maker has been getting DLC costume announcements. The first, for example, was a Mystery Mushroom Costume for Nekki, Famitsu’s mascot. Now, a GameCenter CX costume has been revealed.


In Japan, players will be given access to DLC that turns Mario into Shinya Arino, host of GameCenter CX. You can see his costume appear at the 1:33 second mark in the video above. Arino also provides voice acting for the Mystery Mushroom costume. If you press up while he’s in the costume, Mario will say his catchphrase, “Kacho on!”


GameCenter CX, also known as Retro Game Master, has been running in Japan since 2003. Each week, Arino plays retro video games as a member of the fictional GameCenter CX company. A different game is featured in each episode, with Arino hoping to beat it.


The Nekki and Arino Super Mario Maker Mystery Mushroom costumes are only confirmed for Japan. Nintendo has not announced any DLC costumes for other regions.
