Nintendo’s released the patch notes for a new update available for Super Mario Maker 2. Initially, there was a lot of criticism thrown Nintendo’s way for not include online multiplayer support, but with this update, Nintendo is looking to make things right.

Here is part of the patch notes released by Nintendo.

Network Play

  • Added “Play with friends”
    • You can now play online with friends in either Multiplayer Versus or Multiplayer Co-op modes.
    • You can now select courses uploaded to Course World as well as courses saved to Coursebot.
    • The Nintendo Switch Online mobile app is now supported.
      • You can automatically match online with people that you were matched with via the app, and can voice chat with them.
  • Added features to “Nearby Play”
    • You can now play in Multiplayer Co-op mode as well as Multiplayer Versus mode.
    • You can now select courses uploaded to Course World as well as courses saved to Coursebot.
    • When playing a course saved to Coursebot, the host system doesn’t need to be connected to the internet.
  • Added “LAN Play”
    • Players connected to the same LAN (Local Area Network) can now wirelessly play together.
    • fter selecting Network Play, you can switch to LAN Play mode by clicking in the L Stick and pressing the L or R buttons.

  • Changed the look of the gauge for S+, the highest rank in Multiplayer Versus.
  • If a player places Builder Boxes after a warp point, other players will now be able to break them and proceed forward.
  • All players will take the same amount of time to move through a Warp Pipe, regardless of the state of their character.
  • After updating to Ver. 1.1.0, you will no longer be able to match with players using Ver. 1.0.1 or lower in Network Play.”

Another strange thing omitted in the game before, but now making an appearance is the ability to use buttons during handheld-mode. It’s strange that this wasn’t a standard feature before, but is a welcome change and will no doubt making creating an editing much easier.
