Nintendo isn’t finished with its plans for Super Mario Maker 2. Tucked away inside a Japanese post regarding the recent Zelda-related addition, a note was included mentioning that there are still updates planned for the game.

As far as new features go, Super Mario Maker has had two big patches. Version 1.1.0 in October was highlighted by the addition of the ability to play online with friends. Then with version 2.0.0 in December, new course parts were added including the Master Sword, Ninji Speedruns, and more.

It was announced a few days ago that Super Mario Maker 2 players have uploaded over ten million courses. The upload limit for players was also increased to a total of 100.

Below are the official patch notes:

This week’s Pokemon Direct was highlighted by two announcements. Aside from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, we’re also getting a ton of new content for Pokemon Sword/Shield with the brand new Expansion Pass.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is the much more straightforward announcement, which is probably why it took up significantly less air time. We’re getting a remake of the series’ debut entry here, and it’s coming out very soon. Nintendo will publish the game on March 6, and you can even try out a demo from the eShop right now.

The Pokemon Sword/Shield Expansion Pass is where there’s a lot to go over and think about. For $29.99, you’ll be getting access to new areas, new Pokemon, clothing items, handy features, and more. There are two aspects to the Expansion Pass, with the Isle of Armor releasing by the end of June and The Crown Tundra following this fall. You can read all about the Expansion Pass here.

Now that the presentation has aired, what did you think about the new Pokemon Direct? Will you be picking up Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX? What are your thoughts on the Pokemon Sword/Shield Expansion Pass? Let us know in the comments below.
