Super Mario Maker 2 update adds online multiplayer
Super Mario Maker 2 is giving fans some good news at E3 2019 this week. Super Mario Maker 2 on launch will allow players to create and share levels. And with massively expanded and improved creation tools, things are about to get weird. The Switch title is a wonderful improvement over the first game, offering more tilesets, better placement techniques and more advanced mechanics for rendering and computing levels.
And given that the community for the first game did some amazing things, like creating fully realized turn-based RPG battle system in the first game, the things players will be able to do in the sequel will take unpredictability to incredible new level. One feature that players have clamored for since the launch of the first game is full online multiplayer. In the first game, maps could be shared with other players, but not played cooperatively in real-time.
Nintendo confirmed that the game will be getting a post-launch update to enable online multiplayer. Said update will introduce a new expansion of the Course World in-game. This is the area players use acting as a “hub” where they can play levels created by the community. It’s this hub that will allow players to group up and play levels together in a more traditional multiplayer fashion. Players will also have the option of competitive random matchmaking in addition to playing with friends.
Super Mario Maker 2 launches June 28 on Nintendo Switch.
