In the latest issue of Walmart’s official video game magazine, Game Center, it was revealed that Super Mario Maker 2 will feature the Ice Flower power-up. On page 41 of the Walmart magazine and in a blurb underneath the header “New Super Mario Bros. Wii,” a description reads: “Power-ups like the Ice Flower are also in play.” This might be confirmation that the Ice Flower power-up from New Super Mario Bros. Wii and New Super Mario Bros. U might be appearing in the upcoming Super Mario Maker 2.

Nintendo has not confirmed this as of yet, and this could simply be a mistake made by Game Center‘s editorial. As many who’ve seen this photo already, it’s noted that the “New Super Mario Bros. Wii” mode in Super Mario Maker 2 should actually be a “New Super Mario Bros. U” mode. Furthermore, associate editor of EGM, Michael Goroff, sent an email to a Nintendo fan addressing the copy writing.
