What’s so Different About Super Mario Maker 2?

Super Mario Maker 2 offers a series of new features that fans are starting to get excited for. The game has expanded on the original title’s level-design tools, the available level templates and general game mechanics.

Perhaps the largest addition to the series is the inclusion of online multiplayer, which allows for players to enjoy fellow Nintendo fans’ crafted levels as well as a series of fascinating online modes. For instance, multiplayer versus will allow for players to compete against each other as they attempt to finish their level first.

Super Mario World 3D is another inclusion to the series, as players will be able to take advantage of certain assets from the franchise. One of the most exciting additions to the game, however, is story mode.

In story mode, Mario is tasked with rebuilding Princess Peach’s castle. To do so, Mario will have to complete a series of expertly designed levels for coins. The people over at Nintendo have developed over 100 levels for players to enjoy within story mode.
