Super Mario Maker gives players a new costume for completing Gnat Attack’s hard mode

Posted on November 4, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Super Mario Maker comes with the Gnat Attack mini-game. As many of you know, by completing it, it’s possible to unlock the Builder Mario costume.

Later today, Nintendo will be launching a new update for Super Mario Maker. This will add several new elements like a hard mode in Gnat Attack. The patch files are already loaded up in Japan, and it’s been revealed that beating this new mode unlocks another costume in the game. Continue on below for a first look.


What we have here is Fighter Fly. For those who are unaware, this characters comes from the original Mario Bros.

It’s also worth mentioning that there’s new music for Gnat Attack’s new hard mode. You can download it here or listen below.

    I can’t beat Gnat Attack. I can get right to the end but just run out of time before completion. It’s just not worth it, I’ll probably break my gamepad in order to beat it. So I can forget about beating thevHard Mode.

      I beat Gnat Attack finally, I know what you mean, It’s a little hard to beat it.

        • Jack Red

    Oh boy, the standard Gnat Attack was challenging enough.

    I question whether the hard mode is humanly possible to complete.

  • deathwish

    how do you play hard mode? i cant find it!(i already beat normal and have current version)

    • Addy the Wanderer

      Shake the muncher.

      • deathwish

        did that as well

    • Tryzon Edm

      Hey sorry, I’m 4 months late, but I was looking for it cause I couldn’t find it either. But I found out you have to shake that black muncher so three bugs will fly out (normal mode), but ignore the bugs and keep shaking and there will be a boss bug (hard mode)
