    Link from the Legend of Zelda series is among the new characters coming to Super Mario Maker 2 in a free downloadable update coming Dec. 5.

    At first glance, it may seem like Link, who will only be playable in the Super Mario Bros. game style, is just a rehash of the cosmetic Link Amiibo costume that was available in the first Super Mario Maker on the Wii U. But this version of Link is more than just a visual upgrade, with the ability to attack enemies with sword and dash attacks, block projectiles with a shield, and throw bombs that can destroy blocks. Link can also shoot arrows in three different directions to collect far-off items.

    Link's integration into Super Mario Maker follows the addition of a "Dungeon Maker" mode in the recent Switch re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Neither one is quite the full-fledged "Zelda Maker" game some fans have been clamoring for, but it shows Nintendo is at least toying with the idea in a few different ways.
