Nintendo is adding one of its most iconic characters to "Super Mario Maker 2," the Nintendo Switch game that lets players design their own "Super Mario" levels. With "Super Mario Maker 2" update 2.0, players can grab a new power-up called the Master Sword that will transform Mario into Link, the hero from "The Legend of Zelda" franchise.
"Super Mario Maker 2" supports up to four players and features a short story campaign. The main focus of the game is creating your own "Super Mario" stages and checking out what other people have made online. The original "Super Mario Maker" on Wii U also included Link, but he was only a playable costume. Link's unique items in "Super Mario Maker 2" will give players new ways to solve puzzles, and will likely inspire some wonderfully creative levels from diehard "Zelda" fans.
