Nintendo Co. this week said it will release a new software update to Super Mario Maker for the Wii U Nov. 4.
The update includes the option to add mid-level checkpoints and Course World categories that highlight new levels from Nintendo and partner creators.
Users can utilize the Wii U GamePad and stylus to select classic Mario items like blocks, coins, Koopas, Goombas, and pipes and place them in a set level length.
Additional options include stationary placement of Koopas on specific blocks and the option to place enemies to respawn out of pipes.
At any point in Edit Mode, users can play test the customized level or switch back to edit. In addition, users can switch between classic Super Mario Bros. NES graphics or new Super Mario Bros. U graphics with no load times.
The title has sold 500,000 units at U.S. retail.
