Nintendo Direct: Super Mario Maker Update Announced

A new update seems to be stomping its way to Super Mario Maker, adding an assortment of knick-knacks, trinkets and tools to fuel level builders’ creativity. And occasionally, their cruelty.

Announced during Nintendo Direct yesterday, new items will be making their way to Mario Maker on March 9, and include:

  • A Wall Skewer from Super Mario World when you shake a Thwomp.
  • Locked doors and keys – keys will be assignable to enemies, meaning the player must defeat them in order to get the key.
  • Pink coins – Collecting all the pink coins throughout a level will make a key appear.

The update will also bring an all-new Super Expert Mode to the game’s already crushing 100-Mario Challenge. You’ll have to clear Expert Mode to unlock this punishing patchwork of the toughest levels out there, so it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. Players who survive the challenge will, however, be rewarded with new Mystery Mushroom costumes.

Mario Maker’s last update came in December last year, featuring items like the p-switch doors and fireball-hurling Clown Car. As Nintendo continue to support both the game’s creative mode and online capabilities, perhaps further additions can be expected over the course of 2016.
