The World Maker update arrives for Super Mario Maker 2 tomorrow, April 22nd, and according to Nintendo, it will be the final update for SMM2. While that may sound disappointing on the surface, given the content of the update, we’re sure fans will be pleasantly surprised.
- In World Maker mode, multiple courses created by a user can be tied together on a path from the starting point on a world map to the end castle. The look of the world map can also be customized. Up to eight worlds containing a total of up to 40 courses can be combined, creating a mini Super Mario game that can be shared with others.
- In addition to World Maker, guess who else is making an appearance in Super Mario Maker 2? The Koopalings! All seven of these troublemakers, each with his or her own movement pattern, can be added to user-created courses.
- Other enemies added to the game include the key-chasing Phanto and the wind-up Mechakoopas.
- Additional power-ups and course parts are also coming to Super Mario Maker 2 as part of the free update. This includes the SMB2 Mushroom, which transforms Mario and friends into their look from the Super Mario Bros. 2 game and allows them to pick up and throw items and enemies – just like in that classic game! With the Frog Suit from the Super Mario Bros. 3 game, Mario can swim through water with ease, and even run across its surface! Other power-ups added to the game are the Power Balloon first introduced in the Super Mario World game, the Super Acorn from the New Super Mario Bros. U game and the Boomerang Flower from Super Mario 3D World. There are also five variations for wearables like the Cannon Box and Propeller Box from the Super Mario 3D World game.
This is pretty incredible. SMM2 now contains nearly everything fans have asked for (and in some cases more) to create the Mario game of their dreams. We’re especially excited for the World Maker Mode as Super Mario World continues to be one of our favorite 2D titles of all-time.
