Nintendo has released a new software update for Super Mario Maker 2, which sees the Nintendo Switch exclusive on version 2.0.0.

This introduces the Master Sword as a new item that can be used exclusively in the 8-bit Super Mario Bros. game style. When the course part is collected, Mario will transform into Link – with new moves such as attacking with a sword, shooting arrows, or dropping bombs.

These can be used to create new puzzles, whether that be shooting at out-of-reach switches, using a downward thrust of the Master Sword to defeat enemies that are usually protected, or blowing up walls to open up new paths.

Super Mario Maker 2 is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
