Here's The Full Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Recap

Here's The Full Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Recap

Super Mario Maker 2 was announced back in February in the same Nintendo Direct that also revealed The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake that is headed to the Switch later this year.

Ending today's Super Mario Maker 2 Direct was a surprise announcement for Nintendo's pre-E3 plans. The show is scheduled to kick off today at 3pm PT, 6pm ET, 11pm BST.

Super Mario Maker 2 is coming June 28, 2019 for Nintendo Switch.

Among the game's many new tools, parts, and features is a story mode with more than 100 original courses created by Nintendo developers.

Nintendo Direct is Big N's new streaming news platform, offering fresh details at regular intervals. Course World is where players can share their levels, download courses to play offline and leave comments on other people's creations. You can also customise your look by completing objectives, amid the endless challenge returns and courses queued up at random.

Other notable new features include additional themes (Desert, Snow, Forest, and Sky) featuring new music from veteran Nintendo composer Koji Kondo. Players can also join up for versus and co-op multiplayer modes via the hub. We expect the Nintendo team to runthrough some of the new items and features in Super Mario Maker 2.

The moon unlocks "night courses" across SMM2, which totally changes the way to play. If Mario hits the moon, all enemies on the screen vanish, while things like rotten mushrooms and floating Goombas only appear when the sun is gone. He has to run through courses animated in a range of traditional Mario styles, collecting coins and learning new tricks as he finishes each one.

That's because 3D World has a number of features that only apply to its particular style. Players will be able to set the trajectory of objects like snake blocks, Banzai Bill, Piranha Creepers, Track Blocks and even auto-scrolling levels.

All in all, Super Mario Maker 2 looks absolutely stacked.
