After exploding onto the music scene in 2014, Japanese idol band Babymetal is making their video game debut. Keen to bring metal to the Mushroom Kingdom, Nintendo recently announced that the teen trio will appear as playable characters in Super Mario Maker. Check out the trailer below.

The "Mystery Mushroom" costume adds all three band members in sprite form, who utter a trademark scream every time they jump.

The download is currently available on the Japanese Wii U store, though there's no word on whether the threesome will make it over to the US. The real life band, however, are touring in the States again this summer after their second album, Metal Resistance, debuted at #39 in the US Billboard chart last month.

Which other celebs would you pay to see in the game?
