New Super Mario Maker 2 video highlights a bunch of new features, including co-op building
I can already feel myself rage quitting.
When Super Mario Maker first released, people were quick to come up with some absolutely insane courses for other players to attempt. Now, Nintendo is working on a second title to the series for the Nintendo Switch and it looks to add a bunch of tools and features to take your custom levels to the next, umm, level.
Now, with Super Mario Maker 2 slated for a June release, Nintendo has released a new Nintendo Direct highlighting some of the new features to be included in the new title.

There’s a lot to take in here, so let’s talk about some of the highlights
Super Mario Maker 2 looks to improve on the original in almost every way. New blocks, new slopes, and custom scroll speeds are all available. There are also new themes, including a pretty sweet night mode, and everyone’s most-hated enemy, the Angry Sun.
Co-op fans will also have something new to enjoy, with SMM2 allowing for co-op stage creation, allowing two players to build out a level at the same time.
There’s also a new story mode where your goal is to rebuild Peach’s castle. It’s pretty straightforward from the looks of it, but basically, you’ll have to complete over 100 levels built by Nintendo to earn coins to upgrade the castle.
I had honestly planned on skipping this release, but with the addition of a story mode and co-op building, it is definitely looking more tempting. Super Mario Maker 2 releases on June 28 for the Nintendo Switch.
