Super Mario Maker 2 is expected to be a solid upgrade over the original build-your-Mario-game. At the Nintendo Direct video that happened earlier today, the company spoke in detail about a number of features that it will be adding to the Super Mario Maker 2 game for Switch. The most prominent one among them is that Nintendo will be giving users an option to co-op play, which will enable them to build and design levels with other players on the same console.
With this feature, you will also be able to play through the created levels that are available online with up to four more people.
There are several other changes that are coming to the game, however. These include a range of new themes like desert, winter and forest; a new option of nighttime that alters how some aspects of the game work; more characters like Red Yoshi and Angry Sun; customised scrolling for all levels and on/off switched. The game will also be getting a new single-player story mode and nee music from Koji Kondo.
Super Mario Maker 2 is scheduled to launch on the Switch on June 28 and it will come with a slew of changes including the ones that we have mentioned here.
It is worth mentioning that the company is also expected to launch a more affordable version of its Switch gaming console in June this year. But then, as of now, it is not known what changes Nintendo will be adding to its portable console. It has been speculated though that the new Switch will come with a smaller display and remove the dock capability completely. It is also expected to work with smartphones.
If Nintendo comes wup with a new affordable model of the Switch, its sales would definitely increase. The company has also used this strategy in the past with its 2DS, and it did work. Back then, the comappny opened up the console’s vast library of games to customers, who had to pay less for them.
We should alse mention that another report says that Nintendo may have plans of launching as many as 12 games for its Switch gaming console this year. Three games among these are set to be launched as eShop-only titles, while one will be Nintendo Labo kit and two will be Wii U ports. The remaining six are big retail games.
