Super Mario Maker 2 was announced back in February for the Nintendo Switch, and it’s due out in June of this year. Before the game drops, we’re getting a Super Mario Maker 2 Direct from Nintendo. The global presentation is set to last about 15 minutes, and will go live on Wednesday, May 15 at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT.
We can probably guess at some of the new details, based on a poster that went up in Japanese electronics stores back in April. They hinted at new space- and jungle-themed environments, as well as an appearance by Meowser (a horrifying cat/Bowser hybrid). The Direct is likely going to have a few surprises in store, as well.
The announcement trailer for Super Mario Maker 2 revealed the ability to add slopes, level designs, and gameplay elements from the Wii U title Super Mario 3D World. The infamous and horrifying Angry Sun from Super Mario Bros. 3also makes his first appearance in Mario Maker, along with airship levels, parachutes, and power ups for enemies.
