Super Mario Maker 2 will come to Nintendo store on 28 June 2019. Naturally, it will an exclusive game, developed by in-house studios. It appears that Nintendo is intent on keeping everyone's summer busy with creative courses in Mario games.

Super Mario Maker 2 will be released in the heat of summer, since 28 June 2019 is usually found around the peak of summer temperatures. Those who decide to forego swimming, diving and other means of refreshing entertainment will be able to stay in air-conditioned rooms and will definitely have a lot on their hands, provided they are Nintendo Switch owners.

The exclusive game will be a sequel to the original Super Mario Maker for the Wii U system and will let players express their creativity by making Super Mario courses. According to the official website, this game will feature new tools, items and features when compared to the original.

The toolset is said to be intuitive which should grasp many newcomers who are not familiar with the inner workings of Super Mario Maker. 

One of the new abilities will be to create slopes, as demonstrated on the trailer above. While this will be a debut for the feature, we can already imagine many hours of fun while sliding into Goombas and pretty much anything else, letting them know what it's like to get a game over just for running into someone for once.

Anyway, Nintendo have already announced limited editions  that will offer a Nintendo-themed stylus as well as pre-orders that are available from several retailers such as Walmart, on top of the Nintendo digital store. 

Super Mario Maker will be at a full AAA game price, standing at $59.99 USD, and pre-orders were only available for USA and Canada at the time of writing.

While the new features do look highly enticing and the original Super Mario Maker was well received, we still encourage fans to wait for reviews and gameplay before making a decision since pre-ordering is always a risky decision due to committing money to a product that players know little to nothing about.
