Nintendo has announced some new features for their runaway hit Super Mario Maker. The DLC, which will be available December 21st will include (via Nintendo):

  • Fire Koopa Clown Car: This volcanic vessel is capable of shooting fireballs as well as a powerful charged shot that can even destroy Blocks. It’s perfect for creating shoot-’em-up-style courses.
  • P Warp Doors: Unlike regular Warp Doors, these are only visible while a P Switch is active – perfect for creating truly devious Ghost House courses.
  • Bumper: This bouncy donut-shaped object sends Mario bounding away when touched.
  • World Records: Now pages will display the World Record for each course uploaded, displaying the fastest clear time.
  • Super Mario Maker Bookmark: Levels that players have bookmarked to play later using the Web portal will be accessible from the Course World tab

Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing said:

“Players have already created and shared a huge number of courses, and now it will be easier and more fun than ever for players to create and find levels they will love to play, combining classic Mario game play with the creative fun of making and sharing levels, Super Mario Maker is a perfect experience for the holidays.”

Nintendo, when it comes to their own IP’s, rarely misses and with Super Mario Maker they have hit the ball out of the park (in my opinion). The game has almost single-handedly revitalized interest in the struggling WiiU console (along with Mario Kart 8 which is really, really, fun!!). The chance for us fans of the Mario franchise to take the helm and make our own levels, is a dream I’ve had since I was 8 years old fist experienced FLOWER POWER!!!

MARIO MAKER 2The fact that this DLC is free isn’t lost on this gamer. I’ve read the complaints about Star Wars: Battlefront and I understand it completely. Gamers do not want to pay twice for a game. Who would?

So for everyone out there in the Nation… what do you think of Super Mario Maker? Does the new DLC and the chance to be creative with level making peak your own interest? Let’s see some comments below.
