Super Mario Maker - 99 Amiibo Costumes. Confirmed unlockable without amiibo

So I figured this warrants its own thread. Apologies if it's considered not.

http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/amaj/costume/index.html


This, thanks to StreetsAhead, lists 99 amiibo costumes for Super Mario Maker. But there's more

The Nintendo Japan amiibo listing lists compatibility for every amiibo that exists aside from the Mii Fighters. This includes Pokémon which previously haven't had support outside of simple amiibo unlocks, Chibi Robo and some of the Animal Crossing cards

As hinted at Treehouse Live, it's now also confirmed you can get the amiibo costumes without the amiibo by doing the 100 Mario Challenge

Oh.

Some more details.

1.4GB

Compatible with Wii Remote, Classic Controller (Pro), Pro Controller.

Can save 120 courses.

Did we know this?

Just for clarification for those not in the know
Nope. Mystery (?) Mushroom is only available in the SMB theme. It changes to other theme exclusive items when you switch:
SMB: ? Mushroom
SMB3: Leaf
SMW: Feather
NSMBU: Propeller Mushroom.

How many amiibo are we up to now altogether?

I imagine the 8-bit Mario ones do the same thing, so 100 amiibo are compatible.

My Pokémon amiibo had felt left out, watching all the others unlocking things in Mario Kart 8 and Yoshi's Woolly World. No longer!

Hmmm. I guess people are going to be happy now.

Don't forget that we know at least two are Isabelle. There's an image from Treehouse Live which has Isabelle in her Autumn clothing (brown jumper) in addition to the one with the green jumper seen in this image.

If they are confirmed unlockable without Amiibo, what's the point of them?

Saving you the trouble of doing the in-game requirements to do them? Say you wanna use Captain Falcon from the get-go, just scan the amiibo and BAM hello Super Captain Bros.

It's funny though, I have several amiibo myself and yet will refuse to use 'em because I wanna unlock things myself. I wanna feel like I've -earned- the right to play Mario using Little Mac!

Kinda Funny Games did a lets play at Nintendo and the Nintendo staff confirmed you don't need Amiibo to unlock the characters. They didn't confirm all the ways to unlock them though.


Here's the link if anyone wants to watch, came out on Monday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1OYKTchl5k

I really hope they continue 'Maker' as a series, I would kill for a Kirby maker.

Yeah it's basically like the "time saver" microtransactions (except you get a cool figurine too). I don't mind those since nothing is locked oit of the game.
