Super Mario Maker 2 Coming To Switch In June

The next big Mario game on Switch is one you’ll partially make yourself. Nintendo is bringing a sequel to the 2015 Wii U hit Super Mario Maker to its current console.

The new game was shown in a trailer that kicked off today’s Nintendo Direct. It appears to use Mario assets styled based on Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, New Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario 3D Land.

The original Super Mario Maker came with levels pre-made by Nintendo but emphasised the opportunity for users to make and share their own 2D Mario levels. The game was the rare hit for the beleaguered Wii U console and fuelled a vibrant online scene full of people creating and sharing the most vexing levels they could conceive (you had to be able to finish a level yourself before uploading it, at least). Super Mario Maker was ported to the 3DS in 2016.


    As excited as I am about this, some of these new features look like the early warning signs of a category ten trash storm. Lakitus throwing tornados into spring and note block mazes. *shudder*

    The switch is finally a powerful enough console to do slopes.

    Slopes, people! Slopes!
