Nintendo have released a new video giving us a look at the latest update coming to Super Mario Maker 2 on 5 December, which includes one of gaming’s most famous blades.
As well as legendary swords, the update also introduces a couple of new enemy types that will be available across all styles. There’s Spike, who throws spikey balls at players, and Pokey (who probably should have been called Spike) a moving cactus-like creature that comes in a variety of sizes and occasionally flies.
In terms of building materials, the update adds frozen coins, which, as the name suggests, is a coin that’s been frozen in ice. There’s also P blocks that can be switched on and off, and a dash block (Super Mario 3D World style only) that gives players a boost when jumped upon.
Finally, there’s a new mode called Ninji Speedruns that tasks players with registering the quickest time on special courses created by Nintendo. In a rather cool addition, Ninji ghosts of other players run alongside you as you compete for the fastest time and rewards.
What do you think of the update? Looking forward to wielding the Master Sword? Let us know below.
