Will Amiibos Bring Custom Costumes to Mario Kart 8?

Mii Racer

Using Holmes-esque levels of cunning and guile, one reddit detective has managed to uncover a treasure trove of information concerning the use of amiibos in Mario Kart 8.

The page, which has since been taken down, suggests that players will be able to dress their Mii in racing suits based on the amiibos, with the following figurines seemingly confirmed as compatible:

  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Yoshi
  • Peach
  • Donkey Kong
  • Link
  • Kirby
  • Captain Falcon
  • Samus
  • Fox McCloud

Whilst the prospect of seeing my Mii in something other than a green racing suit does excite me far more than it should, it is the ever-growing potential of the amiibo that has really captured my imagination. Will my Mii be appearing in other games in his new fancy outfits, or does Nintendo have bigger plans in store?

Thanks to maanwel for the information.
