New World Maker mode, new course parts, and more added with free update

Launching on April 22, a free update to the Super Mario Maker 2 game for Nintendo Switch will add a new World Maker mode. In this mode, multiple courses created by a user can be tied together on a path on a world map from a starting point 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? The Koopalings! All seven of these devious troublemakers, each with his or her own movement pattern, can be added to courses.

Additional power-ups and course parts will also be added to Super Mario Maker 2 after downloading the update, including the Super Mario Bros. 2 Mushroom, which transforms Mario and friends into their look from Super Mario Bros. 2 and allows them to pick up and throw items and enemies – just like in that classic game!

With the Frog Suit from Super Mario Bros. 3, Mario can swim through water with ease, and even run across its surface!

Other power-ups being added to the game are the Power Balloon first introduced in Super Mario World, the Super Acorn from New Super Mario Bros. U and the Boomerang Flower, as well as wearables like the Cannon Box and Propeller Box.

All of this and more can be experienced by downloading the free update on April 22.
