The 8-Bit Classic Mario amiibo was announced at E3 2015. The 8-Bit amiibo comes in two different colors. The Classic is how Mario looked in Super Mario Bros on the NES. You can use the 8-Bit Mario amiibo in Super Mario Maker. It will give you a giant mushroom and make Mario big in the game, as well as give enemies a "Mario" disguise, and turn Lakitu into Luigi. The amiibo in size is larger than most of the other amiibo figures.

Mario's style has evolved throughout his many adventures and challenges. This blocky, classic look harkens back to his design in the original Super Mario Bros.™ game that launched for the Nintendo Entertainment System™ in 1985. His iconic red overalls and brownish shirt represent the classic color scheme used in the original game.
