UPDATE (11/4): Just a reminder; the Super Mario Maker update goes live at 5:00 p.m. PST today. Read the article below for the full list of updates included!


All of you Super Mario Maker fans are in for a treat! It looks like Nintendo has been listening to all of your suggestions because quite a few of them have made it into this brand new Mario Maker video that showcases five big updates we’ll be getting next Wednesday, November 4th.

We’ve put together a summary of all five updates for you. So check out the list below if you’re interested in seeing what’s in store for our favorite plumber’s hot new game!

Update 1: Shake an Arrow Sign and it becomes a Checkpoint Flag.

So even if you die after you pass the flag, you’ll just start over from that point and not have replay the entire course. You’ll have to clear the course from that flag in order to upload the level for others to play.

Update 2: Place a Fire Flower and drop a Super Mushroom on it. You’ll get a Super Mushroom if you’re Small Mario. And a Fire Flower if you’re Super Mario!

It’s great to see an already fun and jam-packed game receive such a hefty update. If this game follows in the footsteps of Splatoon’s update history, we may be in for an overwhelmingly good year of Mario Making goodness!

    YESSS!! I am especially excited about the first two updates — this will allow much more “authentic” feeling levels, and checkpoints were sorely-needed for any longer levels. To turn a phrase, Nintendo’s update game is strong.

      I totally agree! Seeing Nintendo roll out the big updates like this for major games is extremely exciting. It makes me think we’re in for a big treat once NX is released. 😀
