Nintendo published a concept drawing of Uncle amiibo from Super Mario Odyssey via Twitter today. Nintendo says the design in this sketch for Uncle amiibo was focused on what his antenna and underside would look like. In Super Mario Odyssey players can use Uncle amiibo (who’s found in every world in the game) to scan in different Nintendo amiibos to unlock new boosts and content. Nintendo even released a variety of Super Mario Odyssey amiibos which can be scanned into the game like other Mario amiibos. See the full concept sketch below.
