Super Mario Maker 2 has been released a few months ago, but, unlike its predecessor, it hasn’t received any new content in the weeks following its launch. The draught is almost over, thankfully, as a new update will be released later this week.
The Super Mario Maker 2 2.0 update will be a massive update that will add a lot of new content. The biggest additions are new course elements, such as the Dash Block and the Frozen Coin.
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.
Another big addition is the Master Sword Power-Up for the Super Mario Bros. style. The power-up transforms Mario into Link, unlocking abilities like shooting arrows and dropping bombs.
The new update also introduces a new mode called Ninji Speedrun Mode, which will challenge players in completing courses provided by Nintendo in the fastest time possible.
Super Mario Maker 2 update 2.0 launches on December 5th worldwide. The game is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
