Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch is right around the corner with both makers and players gearing up for the late June release. During the Nintendo Treehouse stream, fans were shown story mode, maker mode and the all-new night mode – all of which revealed some exciting tidbits of information.
For the sequel, Nintendo were really keen on upgrading the ‘play’ section of the game via story mode. So, instead of making a simple map layout like the first, they wanted to create a small world, similar to other Mario games. According to the stream, the developers worked really hard to make the 3D look as good as it appears, but it was still a ‘big challenge’ taking the game from its 2D roots.
Super Mario Maker 2 also introduces clear conditions to ‘maker’ courses for the first time, which can change the dimensions of the game in very interesting ways. Adding a condition to an online course allows the challenge to be multiplied and can often make (or break) a course. Not only do clear conditions make courses harder, but adding the new night mode also creates different effects depending on the game style used in the course. During the stream, it was also revealed that you could ask players to share what the clear condition of a particular level could be – an interesting twist on the feature.
Super Mario Maker 2 will be released on June 28th for the Nintendo Switch.
