Sanrio’s Hello Kitty and My Melody are the latest Mystery Mushroom costumes to appear in Super Mario Maker, the iconic characters having been recreated in 8-bit pixel form.

To unlock them, players will first have to successfully tackle the ‘Hello Kitty & My Melody’ event course. This is a celebratory crossover of sorts, taking inspiration from Hello Kitty’s flowery surrounding and imagining what would happen if the characters suddenly stumbled into the Mushroom Kingdom.

“Sanrio characters Kitty and Melody find themselves in the world of Super Mario!” the event course description reads. “At first it seems like a fun place, with cute blocks shaped like apples and flowers. But they’d better be careful, because there are dangers up ahead! Won’t you help them find their way safely to the course’s end?”

Super Mario Maker is now available exclusively for Wii U worldwide.
