Nintendo are launching a Super Mario Maker web portal on December 22, alongside a new software update for the game. The web portal will allow players to check their recommended courses as well as browse the full catalogue from devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Players can find their ideal challenge by filtering all available courses by difficulty, game theme and course style to narrow their results. They will also be able to search a variety of tags making it easier to find courses that fall into a specific category such as automatic, puzzle, music among others. Players can then bookmark these courses to find them instantly in-game.
A new software update also be launching on December 22, including:
- 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.
- P 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.
