It is an upcoming side-scrolling platform game, which is scheduled for release in June 2019. The concept of the game originally belonged to Wii U and even though the title was popular, it soon lost its popularity due to the small user base of Wii U, and the game was dropped shortly thereafter, by Nintendo. Now the Super Mario Maker 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch, in which the online community is going to get more time to develop the game. In addition to this, you can expect new features in the upcoming release for the creators to play.
Super Mario Maker 2 Game
Super Mario Maker 2 is a mix of an action platform along with a creative builder game, that helps in building your own Super Mario Bros by using components from the Mario games and play levels built by the others. The game will probably include the same features and ideas, but with more content than the original version, thereby making the Mario levels unique, exciting and enjoyable experience for the players.
Super Mario Maker 2 release date
Super Mario Maker 2 was first revealed at Nintendo Direct in February 2019, and the trailer showed its worldwide launch to be in the month of June. Nintendo has so far kept mum about the actual release date. The probable release of the game in June keeps it away from the release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, that is slated to release in July.
How to play the game
Essentially, there are two ways to enjoy the game Super Mario Maker 2. One is the creation of Mario courses yourself with the help of the course builder tool, followed by testing, experimenting, and publishing them for the other players to access and enjoy. As creativity is the basic principle of the game, there are plenty of ways to approach it and go on building the courses that you want. Apart from this, you can also recreate a course from a Mario game you have already played and create more changes to it. While playing Super Mario Maker 2, a course that you may have already played online can be used as a template and then worked upon. Alternatively, you can start from scratch and allow your imagination to guide you, while you play the game and you go on innovating.
The game features the potential to build courses by following the style of several Mario games, apart from adding the newly introduced features of introducing obstacles and enemies that may not have existed in a specific style. For instance, you can create water and land levels, set the warp pipes, fill different areas with enemies, create different musical levels, shape the obstacles and the ground, of a varying range of complexities you may want. There is no limit to explore your skills of creativity when you play Super Mario Maker 2.
While you can build courses the way you want while playing the game, the other option is to follow the courses others have built online. There is no confirmation from the maker regarding the game protocol to follow or the way it will be played, but it is likely that the players may need an online subscription of Nintendo Switch, to upload the courses they have built or to access the ones created by the others. Right now, we have to wait for more details on how exactly to play Super Mario Maker 2.
New features of Super Mario Maker 2
For players who are already familiar with the originally released game for Wii U (September 2015), the sequel this time would come to Nintendo Switch and the basic feature will be the creation of 2D Mario levels, which lets your imagination run wild while using the tools. It is expected that the upcoming game will present more opportunities for enterprising and creative players.
Even though there was no dearth of possibilities in the original game, its sequel is slated to include more features and enemies for you to create the levels. Are you sure? Well, there is no need to stay in the dark and speculate, as Nintendo Switch has already assimilated the new features of Super Mario Maker 2, and all the opportunities the game will offer. Here is a summary of the features you can expect in the new game.
- You may get gusts of wind for your own levels coming straight from the Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels.
- Components from the Super Mario 3D World are now going to be available in the other styles of the game, such as the Super Bell power-up and various themes such as snow, desert, and night.
- It is expected that Toadette and Luigi will be playable.
- With a night theme set for the game, you can stop using the Underground or the Ghost theme, to make the levels dark.
- An angry sun chases you from the Super Mario Bros 3.
- New enemies include the Piranha Creeper, Banzai Bill, Cat Bullet Bill, Ant Trooper, and Fire Bro.
- You can create customized paths for snake blocks, that first appeared in Super Mario World.

There may be many more additional features in Super Mario Maker 2, but for now, you have to wait for more details to surface. Rumor has it that Super Mario Maker 2 might include a twin player mode as revealed in the screenshots of the game online, apart from the promo cover featuring Luigi, along with Mario. The details of the game revealed so far are murky and you have to wait for Super Mario Maker 2 to be unveiled. Until then it is a waiting game, to enjoy envisaging the features. However, one thing is clear; the game is all set to take your creative skills to the top and allow you to explore your imagination for building courses all the way.
