Super Mario Maker was one of the Wii U gemstones, a popular title that unfortunately lost popularity prematurely due to the little installation base of the Wii U and the fact that the console was effectively dropped by Nintendo shortly after the fight came out. . Its 3DS release did little to revive the game. That's why the good news is that Super Mario Maker 2 comes to Nintendo Switch, where online communities will have far more time and players to fully develop, as well as incorporating many new features and tools for creators to play with.

What's new with Super Mario Maker 2?
15. May 2019: Nintendo Direct reveals new challenges, Multiplayer Modes and Story Mode for Super Mario Maker 2
Nintendo Direct's 15-minute presentation revealed a lot of exciting new information about this sandbox game. Some of the biggest changes from the original game include the addition of Story Mode, Multiplayer Modes and the addition of new level elements and enemies. There are still many unknowns that we only discover that Super Mario Maker 2 is coming out, but here's all we know about the game so far:
What is Super Mario Maker?
Super Mario Maker is a combination of an action platform and a creative building game that lets you build your own Super Mario Bros. levels using Mario game components, then play levels built by others. The game was originally released on the Wii U and was followed by a Nintendo 3DS release. The sequel, Super Mario Maker 2, seems to include many of the same ideas and features, but has built on the original with even more content and ways to enjoy different unique Mario levels.
How do I play?
There are essentially three ways to enjoy Super Mario Maker. One is to create new Mario courses yourself using the course builder tool, test them, experiment, and publish them for others to play. Since this element of the game is focused on creativity, it is effectively an infinite number of ways to approach building your own courses. You can try to restore a course from a Mario game you have played and somehow change it; You can use a course you played online as a template and take it further, or you can start from scratch and let your imagination guide you.
Super Mario Maker 2 will have the opportunity to build courses with the style of multiple Mario games, but will allow you to add items, enemies and obstacles that may not have been available in that style. You can create land and water levels, fill up areas with enemies, set up wiretaps, create musical levels, shape the ground and obstacles, and create courses of some level of complexity you like. Basically, the sky is the limit!
The second way to play Super Mario Maker 2 is via Story Mode. The campaign has you completed levels to earn enough coins to rebuild Princess Peach's castle. You will enjoy 100 original levels as you progress through this mode.
The third way to enjoy Super Mario Maker is to play courses built by others online. You will need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to upload your own courses or play others.
How will online multiplayer work?
The Super Mario Maker 2 course world lets you play with people all over the world to either race or work together to reach the finish line. Nintendo has done so so you can search for courses based on difficulties and category packages so you can find exactly what you are looking for. You can even download other player's levels and play them even when there is no Wi-Fi connection.
It seems that Nintendo has learned from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate online multiplayer problems that they have made so players only need to rely on the internet connection of the person who hosts the game rather than the internet connections of everyone who plays. This is still not foolproof, but it's not bad.
