Super Mario Maker 2 features outlined

Sequel promises to add new themes, course parts, and multiplayer

Posted on

Nintendo has announced new details about Super Mario Maker 2, sequel to the course-creating game for the Wii U.

In the single-player Story Mode, which can be played entirely offline, Mario sets out to help rebuild Princess Peach’s castle. To fund this reconstruction project, he needs to collect Coins, which he can earn by accepting jobs from the bulletin board and completing the associated courses. Story Mode is said to include more than 100 original Nintendo-crafted courses to play.

The new game promises more course parts, tools and features for creators, such as slopes, angry sun, on/off switch, water levels, banzai bills, and the ability to create levels cooperatively offline.

In addition to all the course themes from the original game, players will be able to create and play courses using the Desert, Snow, Forest and Sky themes. The new Moon course part can be used to unlock night versions of themes. Players can choose to create their courses in the style of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, New Super Mario Bros. U games and a new one based on Super Mario 3D World.

Super Mario Maker 2 will also introduce Course World, an online hub where players can play and share courses, as well as play together (membership to Nintendo Switch Online required). In Multiplayer Versus, four players face off in a side-scrolling showdown on a randomly selected course. The player who clears the course first wins and increases their Versus Rating. In Multiplayer Co-op, up to four players must work together to beat the course. If one player finishes it, everyone wins. Lastly, with Nearby Play, up to four players with a Nintendo Switch and the game can join to play together. Only the player setting up the room needs an internet connection.

Super Mario Maker 2 is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on June 28.
