Like its predecessor, Super Mario Maker 2 lets players create their own side-scrolling platformer levels with familiar features, obstacles, enemies and items from Nintendo’s 34-year-old Mario franchise. Choose from a variety of styles across the game series’ history, from the 8-bit looks of the original Super Mario Bros to the updated Super Mario 3D World.
Players can share their levels via a code, allowing anyone to access and play after they enter it. The community has already created tons of levels, from brilliantly creative courses to ultra-punishing tests of timing and endurance.
If that sounds like your kind of game, pick up Super Mario Maker 2 at a slight discount – it’s not much off, but any reduction in the price tag is surprising for a just-released title.
