It’s an age-old question that can be applied to just about any situation, and this week Nintendo has applied it to a new Ninji Speedrun course in Super Mario Maker 2.

Announced yesterday on Twitter, this Super Mario Bros. 2 focused course will task players with using enemies and obstacles as tools to reach the goal, instead of simply smearing them across the bottom of Mario’s boots. Quick-thinking players can also dig up a Cloud Block to help them reach the goal even more swiftly!



According to the Japanese Super Mario Maker 2 website, the course will only accept completed times “from January 20, 2021 (Wednesday) 11:00 to January 27, 2021 (Wednesday) 11:00” (times listed are in JST). With a little time conversion, that means you’ll be able to partake and rank in this snowy course until Tuesday, January 26th, at 6 p.m. PT | 9 p.m. ET.

So, can you dig it?
