One of the most entertaining experiences on last generation’s Wii U was Super Mario Maker. A simple-to-use interface let players imagine, create, play, and share their own custom Mario levels, and countless masterpieces were generated. Unfortunately, Wii U was a commercial flop, greatly limiting Super Mario Maker‘s reach.
Nintendo is remedying that fact with Super Mario Maker 2 on the much more successful Nintendo Switch, and as of today, we know when to expect it. Nintendo has just announced via Twitter that Super Mario Maker 2 launches on June 28th. That’s just a few weeks after E3, so we’ll likely see plenty about the game at the big convention.
Nintendo typically doesn’t release many games during the Summer months, but 2019’s Summer line-up is stacked. In addition to Super Mario Maker, Switch owners can look forward to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order on July 19th, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses on July 26th. That’s one heck of an exclusive trio!
