Nintendo’s Super Mario Maker has been known for its surprising collaborations, from Nisekoi’s Chitoge to the Mercedes Benz GLA. Its latest one is most certainly surprising to say the least, as the metal idol band, BABYMETAL, is joining the game as an official alternate character.

Fresh off from breaking the Top 100 of the US Billboard music charts and giving America a taste of their new Metal Resistance album during The Tonight Show with Stephen Colbert, BABYMETAL is definitely a good addition to the game, which is full of surprising alternate characters.


American audiences were given a better look at BABYMETAL’s three members, Suzuka Nakamoto (Su-Metal), Moa Kikuchi (Moametal), and Yui Mizono (Yuimetal), back in 2014 when they served as opening acts for the one and only Lady Gaga for her ArtRAVE tour across the United States. The band has gained a cult following in the country, and this performance is their first time appearing on American television. The trio also recently got their very own Funko Pop! bobble head figures.
