Nintendo has announced the release date for Super Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch.
Budding game developers will be able to create their own Super Mario levels when Super Mario Maker 2 is released worldwide on June 28, 2019. The game is available to pre-order now and will also be released in a special bundle.
The Super Mario Maker 2 Limited Edition bundle includes a copy of the game, plus a 12-month individual membership for Nintendo Switch Online, the subscription service that includes access to online gaming and a library of classic NES games.
A themed stylus will also be available at selected retailers during the launch period. Players who pre-order the bundle digitally via the Nintendo eShop will also be able to receive the stylus, although full details of how this will work are yet to be confirmed.
Super Mario Maker 2 looks to be a significant upgrade on the popular Wii U original. It features a range of new level options, items, and enemies, and at least one new theme which is based on Super Mario 3D Land. Levels can be created by using the Switch’s touchscreen in handheld mode, or by using a new radial interface when docked.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
