Nintendo has made a surprise update announcement for Super Mario Maker 2, delivering a large content update for the game which will arrive on December 5th. It includes some new features like Dash Block, Frozen Coin, P Block, Spike, and Pokey. All of these can be used to create more diverse levels once the update is out for Nintendo Switch.
This update includes Link as a playable character in a new Adventure Mode. Players can play using Link and use his powers like Master Sword, Shield, Crossbow, and Bombs. They can use these powers to clear obstacles and fight enemies. This mode is only available in the classic Super Mario Bros. visuals.
In addition to the new Zelda Adventure mode, Nintendo is bringing the following new content 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.
