‘Super Mario Maker 2’ Nintendo Direct

‘Super Mario Maker 2’ Nintendo Direct

There are 27 games now eligible for the promotion by my count, including Super Mario Maker 2, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! 3 ghost house music plays, and in another video of the underground in 3D World you get Super Mario Bros. First of all, there's an unlisted YouTube video that you can see below, showing the very basics of course creation with many common features in action. Players made fiendishly complex trap levels, levels that told stories as you played them, and someone even managed to make a giant walking battle mech out of the game's limited toolbox. If you make successful levels, you'll earn Maker Points that you can dump into cosmetics for your Mii avatar.

New course parts include slopes, power switches, giant Bullet Bills, water levels and the terrifying Angry Sun obstacle from "Super Mario Bros. 3".

A long scroll of screenshots shows many themes and tilesets, as well as the Mega Mushroom. It includes things like Cat Mario, picking up and throwing boxes, warp boxes and trampolines as well as unique enemies.

You can make and play levels cooperatively. The mode can be done both online, or in a local environment provided one player has an internet connection as the courses are pulled from online. You can pick up Mario Maker 2 stand-alone, of course, but given how integral going online to either play with others or share your own levels is to the game, Nintendo is also releasing a bundle that includes one year of Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Multiplayer versus mode pits everyone against each other and the victor is just the first person who finishes.

Nintendo has launched a new perk for subscribers of its Nintendo Switch Online membership scheme, which offers members a discount on games bought via the Nintendo eShop. Just one player needs an Online account for everyone to hop into a multiplayer game. That'll cost $69.99 - $10 more than the standard game - or your regional equivalent. There are 100 courses and they're created to introduce you to the tools you can use in the levels you build yourself.
