Nintendo Co. this week said it will release a new software update to Super Mario Maker for the Wii U Dec. 21.
The free software update will include new items like the Fire Koopa Clown Car, P Warp Doors and Bumper. In addition, pages will display the World Record for each course uploaded, and a web portal called Super Mario Maker Bookmark will allow users to bookmark courses from a computer, tablet, or mobile device for play later.
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.
