Late to the party Super Mario Maker 2 Impressions! Finally got a chance to fire up the icon sitting on my Switch.
It’s so interesting how every Nintendo title/app/game reflects their current console theme. Everything Wii U was fun and inviting: the eShop and SMM had fun and upbeat music right off the bat. SMM2 on the other hand embodies the barebones nature of the Switch: Fire it up, Mario shows up on a plain background, zero background music, and bonks the title. I really thought I had audio issues until Mario jumped and the sound effect played.
And the controls are so so tight. The running around the “overworld” in Story Mode might appear similar to Super Mario Party at first, but there is this tightness in controls that is unparalleled in any non Mario game. Just running back and forth in a faux 2D plane puts a smile on my face.
