Starting April 22, players will be able to take advantage of Super Mario Maker 2’s World Maker Mode and a number of new course parts.
In this title’s World Maker mode, multiple courses that have been created by players can be tied together. Players will be able to customize the look of the world map, and will be able to choose the starting point on a world map up to the end castle. Up to eight different worlds, containing a total of up to 40 courses, can be combined together.
A number of power-ups will also make their way to the game as part of this update. New to Super Mario Maker 2 is the SMB2 Mushroom, which changes Mario and his friends into their Super Mario Bros. 2 rendition. This isn’t just a cosmetic change though; this mushroom allows players to pick up and throw items and enemies.
Other power-ups include the Frog Suit (from Super Mario Bros. 3), the Power Balloon (first introduced in Super Mario World), the Super Acorn (from New Super Mario Bros. U), and the Boomerang Flower (from Super Mario 3D World). Five wearables will also be included, including the Cannon Box and Propeller Box (from Super Mario 3D World).
Finally, all seven Koopalings, the key-chasing Phanto, and the wind-up Mechakoopas will be added.
