Super Mario Maker 2’s final major update arrives on April 22, 2020, and will add a new World Maker mode, all seven Koopalings, a Super Mario Bros. 2 Mushroom, the Frog Suit, the Super Acorn from Super Mario Bros. U, the Boomerang Flower, the Cannon Box, the Propeller Box, and more.
The World Maker mode will allow players to create up to eight worlds that contain up to 40 of their courses, which can all be shared with others. Course icons can be changed and Bonus Stages are available, including the moving picture matching game.
Players can create a path, complete with Warp Pipes, bridges, hills, and more, and can place their levels on them in any order they wish.
Each World can either be Underground, Desert, Snow, Sky, Forest, Volcano, or Outer Space-themed. Furthermore, players can name their game after themselves, like the example given of “Super Ellie World.”
The Super Mario Bros. 2 Mushroom will turn Mario into himself from…well…Super Mario Bros. 2. It’s only available in the Super Mario Bros. style, but allows players to ride on and pick up/throw enemies as was done in SMB2.

The Frog Suit will be added to the Super Mario Bros. 3 style and makes Mario a pro at swimming and allows our favorite plumber to run along the top of water.
Super Mario World creators will be able to add the Power Balloon that causes Mario to float with “the fluffy grace that only a balloon can muster.”
The Super Mario Bros. U style will add the Super Acorn, while the Super Mario 3D World style will add the Boomerang Flower, Cannon Box, Propeller Box, Red POW Box, Goomba Mask, and the Bullet Bill Mask.
All seven Koopaling – Larry, Wendy, Morton, Lemmy, Roy, Iggy, and Ludwig – are present and have their own unique moves and can be added to any style but Super Mario 3D World.
Other items will also be added, like the Cursed Key that will have a Phanto chase the key holder, an On/Off Trampoline that can be activated with a switch, and a wind-up automaton Mechakoopa (Red ones shoot homing missiles, blue ones shoot laser beams, and at night they both gain jet engines).
Super Mario Maker 2 was released in June 2019 and, in our review, we said “Super Mario Maker 2 does nearly everything better than its already excellent predecessor, keeping the charm of a Mario game while introducing some incredible new ideas.”
This latest update will bring a close to a year of updates that included the addition of Link’s Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda which sort of made Super Mario Maker 2 into Zelda Dungeon Maker.
