'Super Mario Maker 2' update lets you create overworld maps

The final major update will be out on April 22nd.


Nintendo will soon start rolling out the final major update for Super Mario Maker 2, and it comes with a feature that gives you the power to make a whole new Mario game. The update will give you access to the “World Maker” mode, which lets you tie together multiple courses in a Super Mario World-like map. If you’re up for it, you can combine as many as eight worlds encompassing up to 40 courses from starting point to the end castle — and, yes, you can share your game with friends.

The update also lets you add Koopalings to courses, as well as power-ups and course parts from Super Mario Bros. 2. One of the power-ups you’ll be able to add is a mushroom that gives Mario and the other characters their Super Mario Bros. 2 looks. You can also use the Frog Suit from Super Mario Bros. 3 for your courses, as well as the Power Balloon in Super Mario World, the Super Acorn from New Super Mario Bros. U, among other additional power-ups.

You can watch the video below for more details about the update, which you can download for free when it comes out on April 22nd.
