Super Mario Maker gets checkpoints in free update

In my Super Mario Maker review I mentioned that mid-level checkpoints were a much-needed feature that was sadly missing. A lot of fans think so too. Nintendo has heard the pleas of their audience and added the ability to drop checkpoint flags into your custom levels, in addition to status-dependent powerups. This way An item block will produce either a super mushroom or higher level powerup depending on whether Mario is super or not.

These are welcome additions and what I’d expect for a free update. Hopefully the big features I want–linkable levels, customizable world maps, more tilesets and sloped terrain–are being planned as paid DLC. Look for the freebie update on November 4th.
