Just this week, it seemed like everyone began to remember that Nintendo promised us an update for Mario Maker 2, which was supposed to add online play with friends. Well, tonight, they came through on that promise. Version 1.1.0 is now live for a free update.
Join us for episode 179 of the NintendoFuse Podcast, where we’ll chat about the recent reveal of the Nintendo Switch Lite and the refresh of original Switch. We’ll also share our combined review of Super Mario Maker and talk about a few other pieces of Nintendo news. As usual, we’ll interact with you all in the live chatroom throughout the show.
Super Mario Maker 2 was one of my personal highlights, and easily one of my most anticipated titles of the year!
Nintendo kicked off their E3 2019 festivities a few days early with a three-part tournament on Saturday, June 8. We have the full list of winners right here, as well as links to the videos of the finals for each tournament.
Today, Nintendo published a Nintendo Direct focused primarily on Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch. The game will launch on June 28, 2019, and now we know it will feature a ton more course parts and tools, brand new themes, a story mode, and more. We also found out it will include cool options for online sharing of courses you create. There are even special offers coming soon for Nintendo Online members. On top of all this, Nintendo is planning a Super Mario Maker 2 tournament for the weekend before E3 2019, alongside their already mentioned Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments.
Tune in on Wednesday, May 15 at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET for a roughly 15-minute presentation packed with information all about Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch.
