Super Mario Maker 2's Final Update Is Out Now, Here's Everything It Includes For Free

The final update for the Switch exclusive includes a number of new items and features; get the full rundown here. It's available now.


The final update for Super Mario Maker 2 is available now, and the good news is it's a big one--and it's completely free. The update launched on April 22 for the Switch exclusive, and it introduced an ambitious-sounding "World Maker" mode, in addition to more items to use to create unique levels.

The World Maker mode allows players to string their user-created levels together from a starting point to an end-battle in the castle. In essence, Nintendo is giving you the ability to make a small-scale Mario game, as up to eight worlds featuring a maximum of 40 courses can be put together.

The new Mario Maker 2 update also introduced new enemies--Koopalings, Phantom, and Mechakoopas. These should help level-creators make even more menacing maps.

More power-ups are included in the Mario Maker 2 update as well, including the mushroom from Super Mario Bros. 2. Obtaining this item will not only make Mario appear with his look from the 1988 game, but it will also let you pick up and toss items and enemies just as you could in the original. The frog suit from Super Mario Bros. 3 is also included in the update, along with the Power Balloon, the Super Acorn, and the Boomerang Flower.

In conjunction with this update, Nintendo added two new characters to the free-to-play Mario Kart Tour mobile game. Builder Mario and Builder Toad are available in the game now through 10:59 PM on May 5.
