On the fouth of November, the new patch goes live for Nintendo’s popular new game, this means you will be able to add checkpoint flags to your level to all them painstaking impossible to complete levels you have built yourself. In addition, you will also be able to attach power-ups to make them contingent upon Mario’s current state. So just like the classic games if you collect a mushroom or a fire flower and put them together in a box, Mario will get the mushroom if he’s small and the fire flower if he’s big. Mario Makers will also be receiving special courses in its new events hub. Nintendo stated:

The software update also introduces Event Courses in the game’s Course World online hub. Event Courses will feature levels from partner creators outside Nintendo. One of the first Event Courses will be “Ship Love,” the winning level from the “hackathon” event that was held at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park earlier this year. Facebook is the first outside partner in the United States to design a level for Super Mario Maker; employees had the opportunity to design and present their creations to a panel of judges before the winning level was selected.

They’ll also be adding a section called “Official Makers” that will allow them to send out levels made by Nintendo designers among other VIPs. One of the first Event Courses will be called  “Ship Love,” what was the winning level from the an event called Hackathon that was held at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park earlier this year.
