The much anticipated Super Mario Maker update v1.2 is now live. Key new features include the ability to add checkpoints to levels, which had been much in demand, and you can now 'stack' items in blocks. More exciting additions have arrived through 'Official Makers' and Event Courses, both found in the Course World section of the game. It's a very welcome update indeed.
But that's not all, the Super Mario Maker update has also sneaked in a fun Easter Egg too as we show you in the video below.
When adding a warp door in the editing mode, if you tap on it you will now hear a knocking sound. If you keep knocking Skinny Mario will answer in one of many guises. His appearance also varies depending on which game theme you are using.
Let us know what you think of this Easter Egg with a comment below. Are you delighted with the Super Mario Maker v1.2 update on the whole?
It's a me skinny Mario to a haunt your dreams!
You can always count on Gamexplain to spoil surprises the moment something launches.
Checkpoints for this game were an absolute MUST from the get-go, so I couldn't be happier. Easter eggs are always cool too.
Some of them remind me of the Herr-Riebmann-Cartoons of Nichtlustig:
Kind of scary.
Some of those were genuinely funny. Gotta love Skinny Mario.
Hah! I knew this wasn't there before!
I think Skinny Mario is hilarious, but I don't know exactly why.
My wife and I call him WaluMario... He is incredibly strange. Imagine if they made him available in every style. He would be even creepier looking in the NSMBU style.
Dont you just love it when Nintendo taunts us with features we cant have?
What about the changed fly swatting mini game, I remember hearing that was to be a bew feature?
You're supposed to be able to get that by shaking a muncher. That seems like an even more reliable method than before, which was more random (and usually happened at times when I was on a roll building a level and didn't want to get interrupted by frantic screen tapping)
And now they need to have a Skinny Yoshi powerup...
Skinny Mario is hoarding all the power ups we want to use!
It's a me! Your nightmares.
I do hope those power-ups will be actually usable in the game eventually. The update is great, added more to do and solved some key issues, but not a lot that actually changes gameplay, like new backgrounds, enemies or... EHEM! A NSMB style...
@RupeeClock Someone's salty
Come on, surely you've been watching some YouTube videos before, and then suddenly a current events game is spoiled by a thumbnail in the recommended videos column?
Gamexplain pull crap like putting Final bosses right in the thumbnail.
Well there you go... Tanooki suit, frog suit, penguin suit and tiny mushroom confirmed.
I will be most interested to see if people can come up with a creative way to use the Tanooki... it seemed just kind of thrown into SMB3. (Tanooki is different than raccoon suit.)
What exactly would a NSMB style include that isn't in NSMBU theme? Besides certain suits...
@RupeeClock That has actually never happened to me. How often does this happen to everyone else? Also, what final boss did GameXplain spoil?
I bet this is the next update/dlc
@RupeeClock Lol I hate when Youtubers do that.
Uncanny mario is uncanny
should have been luigi
His name is Weird Mario, not skinny Mario.
Since doors alter the fabric of reality, causing you to teleport, I have a headcannon that Weird Mario can manipulate time and space.
@amiiboacid perhaps Weird Mario is actually the player and star of the game. Being he can alter space and time, he's the one creating all these stages for Mario to play through.
@ShadJV But the promotional art has Mario building the stage.
@Zombo clearly impossible, as Mario can't be playing the stage and building it at the same time, he literally can lift himself up and move himself around. Not to mention is Mario essentially a god now, building the entire world around him? Clearly Weird Mario is god of the Mushroom Kingdom, misleading us with promo art (I mean what gods actually let there be decisive evidence of their existence?) and using Mario and company as mere playthings. Or maybe not a god but at least a powerful trans dimensional being that can mold entire worlds to his own desire... Why else what he be hiding behind doors that clearly bend spacey wacey timey wimey stuff?
Ha ha, cool!
@ShadJV Let's take this a step further. Weird Mario is the god of every video game universe and creates them all. Video game companies are secret societies that worship him and pretend to make the games to cover up his existence.
@ShadJV or maybe he's just a Mario that's skinny. Don't think too deep into it.
how o you "stack" items in blocks that the update claimed to add?
