Ever since the Switch was announced, fans of the original game on Wii U and 3DS have been clamouring for a sequel and Nintendo has given them what they want. Super Mario Maker 2 will allow Switch owners to create and play custom levels at home, while travelling and in handheld mode. It’s an incredible experience and given the improved nature of the Switch’s touchscreen, it’s sure to make playing the sequel even better. 

Super Mario Maker 2 will be available for Switch in June 2019.
