You may remember just a little while back, a new costume based on the Sky Pop from the Game Boy’s Super Mario Land was leaked. We covered the leak, and at the time you could preview the unreleased costume in a custom stage, though it had a tendency to crash your game.

However, if you’re still looking for the retro costume, the wait is over! Nintendo has asked Southwest Airlines to create a custom stage revolving around the company, and the airline delivered. Titled ‘Southwest Air Adventure’, you can find the level by visiting Course World in the game. Southwest states on its blog that users will “take to the skies in an air-travel adventure” complete with Southwest-themed obstacles. The course even ends with the signature Southwest Heart, made completely out of coins!


You’ll find the Mystery Mushroom containing the Sky Pop costume somewhere in the stage, and once you do you’ll be able to properly explore the skies. And of course, upon completing the stage, you’ll have the costume for future use.

Southwest also encourages you to share your best times with it on Twitter at @SouthwestAir. Or, if you’re feeling really daring, go ahead and take the challenge to beat the world record!
