Super Mario Maker 2 Reveals New Items and Enemies in Free Update

Nintendo revealed what’s to come in the newest updated headed to Super Mario Maker 2 on Nintendo Switch.

Available on December 5, owners of Super Mario Maker 2 will receive a new legendary update for free. This update adds Link from the Legend of Zelda series as a playable character along with new course parts and gameplay modes.

After updating to version 2.0.0, players will be able to incorporate the Master Sword item in the 8-bit Super Mario Bros. world. If players interact with it, Mario will transform into Link, which gives him the ability to attack with a sword, shoot arrows, and drop bombs.

Here are the other items being added to the game:

  • 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.

The game has also added a Ninji Speedrun mode, where players take on a timed challenge in courses created by Nintendo. Ninji Ghosts will run alongside players as they compete against rivals and work towards the fastest time.
