Super Mario Maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2 gets a free content update this week

The Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda is even included, turning you into Link himself.

Super Mario Maker 2 released earlier this year for the Nintendo Switch, reintroducing us to Nintendo's creative tool, letting players create their own Mario levels in retro or modern styles, some of which turned into hellish gauntlets that only the most hardcore of players could complete.

This week, however, players are getting even more to toy with, as a free content update is landing on December 5, including new course parts, a new mode, and the Master Sword.

This was revealed on Twitter, where we find out even more details. Spike, for example, is a new enemy that throws iron balls at Mario, while Pokey is a tall foe who can cause a problem if you're unable to jump over it.

We can also expect coins encased in ice, the P Blocks which appear temporarily when you step on a P switch, and the Dash Block to speed you up.

Perhaps the coolest feature is The Legend of Zelda's Master Sword though, turning you into Link along with a sword attack, the shield, the bow and arrow, bombs, and more.

As for the new mode, this is called Ninji Speedruns, letting you race for the quickest times on courses created by Nintendo. New courses will be regularly added, and you can even earn Mii costumes for your troubles.

What's the highlight?
