Super Mario Maker 2 release: the definitive level editor for Nintendo Switch


With the retransmission 'Super Mario Maker 2 Direct', Nintendo has shown that the game is more than a conversion of the namesake for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. It is enough to review the numerous novelties presented:

The news

There are a lot of new elements, tools and features available with which players can unleash their creativity, including:

Slopes – Now you can create surfaces at an angle by choosing the direction and adjusting the length. Soft earrings are also available.

Sun – Many will remember the sun that attacked Mario in Super Mario Bros. 3. Well, he has returned with the same bad old fleas and ready to make it difficult for the players in this new installment!

ON / OFF switch – When hitting an ON / OFF switch, all the red and blue blocks of the level will be exchanged. If these switches are placed with heads, puzzles and convoluted obstacles can be created.

Water level – The water level in Super Mario Maker 2 can be adjusted in the forest environment, so that only half of the level is flooded. It can also be established that the water level rise and fall at different speeds with the passage of time.

Bill Banzai – These classic Super Mario enemies can also be red: in that case, they will go after poor Mario without giving him a break!

Create as a couple – Players can pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend to create a level in company.

History mode

In this single player mode, which can be enjoyed completely offline, Mario gets down to work to rebuild the castle of Peach. To finance the project, Mario must collect coins, which can be obtained by accepting orders and completing the corresponding levels. The story mode is the ideal source of inspiration, since it has more than 100 original levels created by Nintendo.

New environments

In addition to the original game environments, players can also create and enjoy levels with the desert, snow, forest and sky environments. These environments include new music created by Koji Kondo, the veteran composer of the Super Mario series. On the other hand, thanks to the new element «Moon», you can now unlock nocturnal versions of the environments. Depending on the environment used, quite disturbing things will happen at night: floating Goombas will appear, enlightenment will dim in the haunted house and sand storms will rise in the desert. It is even possible that some objects are transformed at nightfall …

Super Mario 3D World

Players can create levels with the appearance Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, New Super Mario Bros. U and, for the first time, the Super Mario 3D World appearance. This appearance includes unique features, including:

Mario Felino – Mario Felino can climb the walls, scratch, slide and pounce on enemies. He is also capable of climbing the pennant! It's what the cat agility has.

Transparent piping – These pipes can be placed creating the shape that the player prefers, but be careful: enemies can also be entered into them!

Koopa car – Players can ride in this vehicle and go through the levels at full speed. Of course, it is better to drive carefully so as not to stamp!

Rail block – This block will follow the path traced by the player. The blue will begin to move when the player is placed on top of him.

Crawling Piranha – The Crawling Piranha will follow the path that the player traces, extending its dangerous stalk with spikes through the level.

The cast of Super Mario 3D World: Other familiar faces will also make an appearance in Super Mario Maker 2.

Global levels

Here players from around the world can share the levels they have created with such care and play, either alone or in company. World levels are available for players who have a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online. Players can search the most popular levels, see the news or do a more detailed search. For example, you can filter those labeled as puzzles or those that have autoavance. By downloading a level, it will be possible to play it at any time, even offline. Players can customize the look of their Mii character with t-shirts, hats and other items that will be unlocked by completing different objectives. In Endless Mario Challenge, players will try to complete all the world levels they can in the difficulty they have chosen to run out of lives. If players get a high score they can make a place in the creators classification.


Players can enjoy multiplayer games with users from all over the world at world levels. When four players meet, they can choose between Mario, Luigi, Toad or Toadette.

Competitive mode – Four players face each other in this multiplayer online mode. Each player incarnates a different character and will compete against the rest by touring a randomly selected level as a group. The player who completes the level in the first place will take the victory and that will determine his assessment.

Cooperative mode – In this online mode, up to four players must collaborate to overcome the level. It will be enough for a single player to overcome it so that everyone wins.

Nearby players – If up to four players come together and each has a Nintendo Switch console and a copy of Super Mario Maker 2, one of them can create a virtual room to play using the «Next players» option. It is only necessary that the creator of the room has a constant connection to the internet.
