Following its release on the Japanese eShop a few days ago, a new video has surfaced, showing off gameplay of the Wii U version of Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge.

The nearly 40 minute-long footage from YouTube user NintenDaan illustrates the vastly different playstyles of each scannable character– from Mini Diddy Kong’s edge grabbing to Mini Rosalina’s high jump ability.

While no exact dates for its stateside and European releases have been announced, English-speaking players should be receiving the game for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS sometime in 2016.

Check out the video below to get a taste of what to expect when the game drops in the West later this year!
