Nintendo is to launch a new Super Mario Maker Bookmark web portal on 22nd December alongside a software update that further expands the game’s course creation possibilities.
Players will be able to access Super Mario Maker Bookmark from their computer, tablet or smart phone to see recommended courses, as well as find their ideal challenge by filtering all available courses by difficulty, game theme, course style and more. Players can also search using a selection of tags, making it easier to find courses that fall into a specific category such as automatic, puzzle, music and more.
Also on 22nd December, a software update will be released that adds even more features to the game, including several items never before seen in the Super Mario series. These new features include:
- Fire Koopa Clown Car: Perfect for creating shoot ‘em up-style courses, this volcanic vessel is capable of shooting fireballs as well as a powerful charged shot that can even destroy Blocks.
- Warp Doors: Unlike regular Warp Doors, these are only visible while a P Switch is active – ideal for creating truly devious Ghost House courses.
- Bumper: This bouncy donut-shaped object sends Mario bounding away when touched.
- Other additions: Super Mario Maker Bookmark will be accessible from Course World, while the course information page will now show the fastest clear time, as well as the first player to clear that particular course.
You can see the new items in action in a new video below.
