The 8-bit Mario amiibo will be available in two variations, the first of which will arrive in Europe on Sept. 11 to coincide with the release of Super Mario Maker, and the second will arrive on Oct. 23

The announcement was made on the Twitter page of Nintendo Europe, which revealed two versions of the statue. The first statue mimics the color scheme of Mario’s character model in “Super Mario Bros.” while the second uses the traditional red and blue that most people seem to associate Mario with and how he’s appeared in more recent games.

Super Mario Maker – coming to Nintendo Wii U – will allow users to create and upload their own levels for other players to try, as well as show off their creativity. In addition, the game will launch with 3 packs totaling 100 levels for your gaming pleasure.

No word yet on when they are being released in the US, but when they are you better grab one fast – with the rising popularity of amiibo, they are sure to fly off the shelves!
