Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty is one of those franchises that just feels like it's just always been there. It's tough to pin down what exactly made the character so famous, as Hello Kitty has appeared in countless forms of merchandise, as well as in some video games and TV Shows. Regardless of what gave it such pop culture recognition, few could dispute that Hello Kitty is one of the most recognizable characters in existence, so it seems logical that it inevitably would show up in Super Mario Maker.

That's right, costumes of both Hello Kitty and My Melody – one of the many furry friends that have cropped up over the franchise's run – are due to be coming to the popular level editor later this week. Better yet, Nintendo of Japan decided to throw together a short video showing off the characters in action. Take a look:
