Super Mario Maker 2 has just been announced during Nintendo’s latest direct with a release date of June 2019, just four months away.

What Nintendo made pretty clear in the short trailer for the new sequel was that this new title will indeed feature slopes, something that was missing from the original Super Mario Maker.

Of course, a lonesome addition of slopes wouldn’t be enough to slap a number 2 on the title, Nintendo also made it clear that there is much more content packed into this sequel. We got a glimpse as new features lifted from other titles that were not included in the original such as the bell power-up in Super Mario 3D World. We also got to see how Nintendo is handling the transition from the Wii U touchpad to the switch screen.

The announcement comes to no surprise, but what is surprising is how long we have until the launch of the game. As in how long we don’t have to wait to play it. I will finally get to get extremely frustrated trying to beat one Mario level once again in just a few months.

As stated above, Super Mario Maker 2 is set to release June 2019 for the Nintendo Switch.
