Super Mario Maker 2 adds 4-player versus multiplayer

Super Mario Maker 2 will offer a 4-player versus multiplayer mode and more.


On top of being able to download courses from the community, Super Mario Maker 2 will allow players to dive into the game together and take part in 4-player gameplay modes, including a new versus mode.

Super Mario Maker 2 is really upping the ante for Mario fans by allowing them to not only create new levels in 2-player co-op, but also take part in 4-player matches. There are a couple of different ways that you can team up with your friends in the upcoming Mario level creator, and we learned a bit about them during today’s Nintendo Direct.

Super Mario Maker 2 players will be able to team up with three other players to take part in Multiplayer Co-op matches, which allow up to four players to play through levels together. Of course, if you’re more of a competitive person, then you can pull your friends into Multiplayer Versus. In this new mode, you’ll face off against three other players in a race to complete various Super Mario Maker 2 courses, all of which are randomly selected.

The player that clears the course first will win in versus and winning will allow you to increase your Versus Rank, allowing you to brag about your Mario skills at friendly get togethers. It’s a unique new way to play Super Mario, and it brings some different instances that you just wouldn’t see playing alone. Better yet, if you’re all hanging out together, only one player will need to be connected to the internet to set up a room for others to join. There’s no rating for this mode, but it gives you a great way to team up with your pals at get togethers for a little friendly Mario fun.

We’ll continue to watch out for more information on Super Mario Maker 2. For now, be sure to head over to our Nintendo Switch hub for all the latest news and follow Shacknews on Twitter to get the latest info delivered right to your timeline.
