Not only can you expect the same type of fun level customization featured in the original Super Mario Maker, but new features, options, and assets as well. For example, different pieces of level construction along with slopes and assets from Super Mario 3D World are all on display in the trailer for Super Mario Maker 2.

While the trailer and its corresponding description lack specific details, we’re already itching to get our hands on Super Mario Maker 2.
