Super Mario Maker 2

As part of today's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced Super Mario Maker 2 for the Nintendo Switch. They also revealed that it will be released this June.

The trailer, which you can see below, includes a look at some of the familiar gameplay. You can see that the trailer showcases some tilesets from games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, New Super Mario Bros., and Super Mario 3D Land. Nintendo says that this sequel will include "more tools, items, and features." One of the big additions is the ability to create slopes, a feature that wasn't present in the first game.

Much like the original, Super Mario Maker 2 will allow players to create, share, and play user created Mario levels. And much like the original, I'm sure some people will make insanely challenging levels for Mario masters to complete. Just remember that creators need to beat their own levels first before they're allowed to upload them.

It's a near endless source of content and it's a sequel that many Nintendo fans have been wishing for.
