Super Mario Maker 2 was first announced during February's big Nintendo Direct. Much like the original Wii U/3DS game, it allows players to create and share their own custom Super Mario levels using a suite of assets and tools. Nintendo showed off a handful of new customization options in the game's reveal trailer. Among other things, players can now create slopes for Mario to slide down, adjust the direction autoscrolling levels scroll, and use assets from Super Mario 3D World.
Super Mario Maker 2's release date is set for June 28, just a few weeks after E3 2019 concludes. It's just one of many big Switch games on the way this year. Nintendo is also releasing Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokemon Sword and Shield, a new Animal Crossing, and more for the hybrid console in 2019.
