Nintendo announced a free content update today.
Super Mario Maker 2 Master Sword

On December 5, Nintendo will release a free content update for Super Mario Maker 2 for the Nintendo Switch. This update will offer players the ability to use new course parts in their designs, a new mode, and a little thing called the Master Sword.

All of this will be included in the 2.0.0 update set to hit Super Mario Maker 2 in just a few days. The Master Sword item will only be usable in the 8-bit Super Mario Bros. style. When acquired, the Master Sword will transform Mario into Link. This new form will also come with a new set of moves, including the ability to attack with the sword, shoot arrows, and drop bombs.

This new addition kind of opens the gates for an entirely new realm of world creation. Fans could, in theory, make their own Zelda 2 style maps.

This update will also add in the following new course parts, enemies, and content:
  • Dash Block: Available in the Super Mario 3D World style, the Dash Block course part gives Mario a major speed burst when stepped on.
  • Frozen Coin: These coins are surrounded by a block of ice and can only be released if melted by fireballs or other fire elements, including a certain angry sun.
  • P Block: When a P Switch is hit in the course, invisible P Blocks temporarily turn into hard platforms, or vice-versa.
  • Spike: This classic enemy coughs up massive spike balls and launches them at Mario. If used in the snow environment, Spike will toss snowballs instead!
  • Pokey: The iconic stacked cactus from multiple Super Mario games joins Super Mario Maker 2 for the first time. Players can even edit the height of each Pokey.
There is also going to be a new Ninji Speedruns mode. Players will tackle a number of timed challenges in courses made by Nintendo specifically for this mode. You will be in a race against Ninji Ghosts that represent times from players all around the world. Players are encouraged to re-run the courses to improve their times. You can also collect stamps by completing courses which can then be redeemed for special Mii costumes.
