Super Mario Maker 2 gets a new update that adds in Online Co-Op and Versus Multiplayer.
Mario Maker 2 was released last summer and was well received. The game allowed players to construct their own Mario levels using similar tools that the developers use for the official Mario games. Players can add any enemies, power-up, or obstacle they want, and in any way they want.
In this new game, a sequel to the original Wii U™ game, players can create the Super Mario courses of their dreams, with access to even more tools, items and features, including the new ability to create slopes for the first time. Super Mario Maker 2 launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch this June.
One aspect of the game that received mixed reviews was the online functionality. Many people took issue with the fact that you can’t play online with your friends. Nintendo promises it will add more to online, yet things for Mario Maker 2 have become very quiet since the game was released.
Today on Nintendo of America’s official Twitter account, it was announced that a new update would get added to Mario Maker 2. The latest update is called version 1.1.0, and it includes new online features.
Version 1.1.0 allows players to play online with their friends in Multiplayer Versus or Multiplayer Co-op modes. Gamers can also select courses uploaded in Course World, as well as courses saved in the Coursebot. Coursebot also does not always need to be connected to the internet anymore to play sessions.
The update also adds in a list of Official Makers in the Leaderboards section in the game. You can now find makers on the Official Makers list and can discover new levels they made. You can even see what individual course makers make for a special occasion on this official list.
Other new features that version 1.1.0 brings is touchscreen control while in handheld mode. Players can now select a Play Together option directly from any level uploaded from a maker’s profile. Maker Profiles now include a user’s total amount of first time clears, which are the number of times a player was the first to make a new course.
Call your friends! The Version 1.1.0 update of #SuperMarioMaker2 is available now! It adds online co-op & versus multiplayer with people on your #NintendoSwitch friends list. You can also choose courses to play from your locally saved list in Coursebot. https://t.co/F3U1umFLq2
There is now also the ability to use touch-screen & button controls when creating courses in Handheld mode! Be sure to look forward to additional game updates, including new course parts in the future.
