Watch the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct

The original Super Mario Maker was an instant hit with Wii U owners. It gave fans the ability to imagine, design, play, and share their own Mario creations. Players quickly created and uploaded millions of levels. Even famous game developers got it on the fun! The creative minds behind Castlevania, Shovel Knight, Mega Man, and more all participated in the Devs Make Mario series. The game was well-received by fans and critics alike, and it went on to sell over 4 million copies.

Super Mario Maker 2 looks to be even more fun than the original. It brings back all the gameplay that fans loved and packs in tons of new features. There are new environments, enemies, and obstacles galore. And, yes, Nintendo finally added slopes! It can all be yours on June 28.
