Super Mario MakerSuper Mario Maker – Ver. 1.31

Today, Nintendo released another update for Super Mario Maker. Unlike the previous one, it doesn’t add any new features or course elements, it just fixes some (minor) issues (but as usual, Nintendo doesn’t give any details). To download it, you need at least 298MB of free space on your Wii U or external HDD.

Here’s the official patchnotes:

  • Introduces additional enhancements to improve the user’s experience and enjoyment

To download it, you will have two options:

  • let the console do its thing if you have automatic downloads activated. You should have the latest version the next time you lanch the game;
  • if not, you can launch Super Mario Maker from the Home Menu (not the Quick Start Menu) in order to trigger the download and installation of the update.

To check that you have the latest version of the game, simply launch it. You should see this at the bottom right corner of the screen:
