Nintendo has released a video detailing a brand new update for Super Mario Maker coming on December 21st (December 22nd in Europe and Japan). This update will add three new items to the roster, as well as a system that allows players to view world record times for completing specific stages. This is good news for speedrunners, and I can’t wait to see players compete for the fastest times (especially on courses such as Super Meat Bros). The following day, the 22nd, will see the launch of the Bookmark Web Portal, a place to find Mario Maker courses via personal computers and mobile devices.
The items being added are:
- Bumpers (shake a Grinder to make one)
- P Warp Door (shake a Warp Door to make one)
- Fire Koopa Clown Car (shake a Koopa Clown Car)
Are you excited for the new update? Will you be designing more courses with the new items? Let us know in the comments.
