Super Mario Maker 2 is getting a Version 2 update on December 5, and while these sorts of things can sometimes just mean “improved stability” (a Nintendo favorite), in this case there is a whole lot to look forward to. Including an appearance from everyone’s favorite Hyrulean hero! Watch the trailer below to see everything that’s coming to the game:

Let’s recap what to expect on 12.05:

  • The Master Sword turns Mario into Link from The Legend of Zelda. Exclusive to the 8-bit Super Mario Bros. theme, Link comes with a whole range of abilities that are new to Super Mario Maker 2, including being able to shoot arrows and lob bombs.
  • Ninji Speedrun sees the Super Mario World baddies hosting a new mode where players can compete to get the fastest completion time in a handful of stages curated by Nintendo. Difficulty is based on the player’s skill level and will climb gradually over time. Other players’ runs are represented by Ninji running across the screen alongside Mario.
  • New course elements include (as described in the Nintendo press release):
    • Dash Block: Available in the Super Mario 3D World style, the Dash Block course part gives Mario a major speed burst when stepped on.
    • Frozen Coin: These coins are surrounded by a block of ice and can only be released if melted by fireballs or other fire elements, including a certain angry sun.
    • P Block: When a P Switch is hit in the course, invisible P Blocks temporarily turn into hard platforms, or vice-versa.
    • Spike: This classic enemy coughs up massive spike balls and launches them at Mario. If used in the snow environment, Spike will toss snowballs instead!
    • Pokey: The iconic stacked cactus from multiple Super Mario games joins Super Mario Maker 2 for the first time. Players can even edit the height of each Pokey.

This is a bunch of cool new stuff, and best of all is that it’s all free! Are you pumped for this update? Share with us in the comments and on social media!
