Super Mario Maker 2 introduces new themes to the game

The Nintendo Direct today revealed quite a bit of content for Super Mario Maker 2. The build-your-own-fun style game is the sequel to the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS versions released in prior years. Now, the game will introduce new themes for you to toy around with through the generations.

New season, who dis?

Even with the original skillsets and tools given to players, there were almost limitless possibilities on what you could do in a given level. The Nintendo Direct revealed at least four themes that will be added to Super Mario Maker 2: desert, snow, forest, and sky. And since there are a variety of generations that you can switch to on the fly (Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World), this offers even more variety for creators.

Ah, there’s nothing like falling to your death in both 8-bit and 16-bit levels, especially when that means a cool, snowy breeze is blowing by.

Sounds like death

There’s no doubt that these courses wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t have both the original sounds and music tracks to accompany them? The Nintendo Direct also revealed that the original composer to the Super Mario franchise, Koji Kondo, will lend his talents for the game, especially since those songs are no doubt present in the game’s newly-announced story mode.

Super Mario Maker 2 will release on June 28, 2019. Nintendo released additional information for other aspects as well, specifically for vouchers and how to purchase the game. There is a lot to digest to pick and choose how to spend your dollars. So, make sure you do your research before taking the plunge on this, especially if you have the Nintendo Online service. You can check out all this and more information using Nintendo’s official site.
