The Moon course part is tied to the course themes in the game. In addition to all of the existing themes from the first Super Mario Maker game on the Wii U, there’ll now be desert, snow, forest and sky templates as well. Using the Moon course part allows you to unlock the “night versions” for each of the themes and if you make contact with the Moon during a playthrough, you’ll wipe out all of the enemies on the screen.
When swapping a level over to night mode, wild things will happen. Expect floating Goombas, dimmed lighting in ghost houses and sandstorms as you make your way through desert levels. Items can even transform in the dark. So watch out for rotten mushrooms and poison water! To top it off, the veteran Super Mario composer Koji Kondo has recorded new music for these themes.
