Lots of new stuff coming.
Today’s Super Mario Maker 2 Nintendo Direct showed off new features including a story mode, multiplayer and more, all available in the upcoming Nintendo Switch game.
Of note, Super Mario Maker 2 will feature a story mode that walks a user through rebuilding the Mushroom Kingdom. The story mode will sport over 100 courses made by Nintendo itself.
