You can now upload twice as many Super Mario Maker 2 courses.
When Super Mario Maker 2 released, you could only upload 32 courses at any one time. That’s not to say that you couldn’t create more courses, but to upload them to the outside world, you’d need to remove some from your public-facing catalogue if you hit that upload limit.
Quite why so many of you are using Mario Maker 2 to do unspeakably sadistic things to one another is a different issue entirely, but now you’ll be able to be twice as sadistic: the Super Mario Maker 2 course upload limit has been raised from 32 to 64 courses.
Nintendo announced the news via its Twitter account, with the promise of an additional uplift in the Super Mario Maker 2 course upload limit in the future.
The maximum number of courses that you can upload in #SuperMarioMaker2 has been increased from 32 to 64 courses! We plan to raise this limit again in the future, so stay tuned. The development team has also created a special course, featuring Super Ball Mario!

Oh, and there’s also a special course featuring Super Ball Mario. (That’s less weird than it sounds.) It’s a combination of Mario’s fire flower power-up and the bouncing ball action of arcade classic Breakout. It’s unclear whether this means you can create levels with Super Ball Mario, but you’ll find him playable in Nintendo’s course at 24Y-BMK-5JG.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
