Nintendo took to Twitter today to announce that Super Mario Maker 2, the sequel to the Wii U’s Mario creation suite, will be arriving in late June. This means you can go through E3 without worrying that Super Mario Maker 2 will be distracting the entire industry.
It is a little odd to suddenly drop the date for the game out of nowhere without actually saying much about the game yet. We know that Super Mario Maker 2 contains slopes, very likely has multiplayer, probably has Toadette, has a 3D World skin, and it’s hard to really know for sure what else. Hopefully Nintendo will find the time to detail the rest at some point before release.
On the plus side, Super Mario Maker 2 is the next major Switch game out, so now we have a release date for it.
