Super Mario Maker 2

I'm guessing Super Mario Bros 2 plays so radically different (though why they prioritized 3D world, beats me) so that's why there's an enemy notable from it (in Pokey's case, it has solid appearances in Super Mario Bros. 3 and World and New Super Mario Bros.) Note we do have Bob-Ombs, which also debut in Super Mario Bros. 2.

I don't have SMM2 yet nor have I played SMB2 but I think it would be a shame to leave it out as it looks kinda interesting even if it's not as popular as the classics either side.

I think they did 3D World as that game was pretty popular considering how much the Wii U wasn't, and it's not been ported to the Switch so they did it to get extra attention and sales.

Enough said.
Nice they added the Pokeys (which was a prominent character, that debuted with SMB2), but I wonder why they added the new Ninji game (considered a new "mode"), but didn't take the opportunity to add SMB2. Is it really that hard to convert? (Harder than 3DW was?) I notice that when the new Link powerup throws the bomb, it sounds just like SMB2. (forgot if that's how it sounded in the Zelda game).
I hope that and the Pokeys are not supposed to be a nod to SMB2, that will "represent" the game, and that will be the closest we ever get to it. (I also noticed, they at some point added to SMB1 those green semisolid mounds that resemble the ones from SMB2).
As Ninjis and Pokeys (especially the latter) have become recurring enemies in the series, I definitely don't feel like their inclusion directly eliminates the possiblility of SMB2 becoming a "makeable" style simply because they appear in it. Same opinion with the sound effect and semisolid - they are much too coincidental to really mean anything. Some game developers add hints pointing to upcoming games/updates/DLC/what-have-you, but Nintendo hasn't usually done that in that past. (Speaking of which, while I definitely feel like a 3D World port will happen at some point, but because of previously-stated reasons I don't think SMM2 is a hint toward it.)

I wonder if Nintendo is still planning to release a bookmark site for this game, i feel like that's something notable SMM2 still doesn't have that really has no reason to be cut unless they're just still working on it

could you make a physical or digital notepad of ids of levels you want to try later?

Story Mode's stone levels are amusing because they always require the stone being carried to the exit: no exceptions. The game also did a great job in showing how the stone interacts with the game's elements, so for example, Yoshi can take a stone without any movement penalties compared to how Mario is drastically slowed down and reduced jump height.

An annoying type of level is the one where landing from a high ground is not allowed, which does lend to some cool levels even if they're super frustrating if failed. The best one is the first one involving the ghost house, when the concept felt fresh.

I like how in the final level before the credits...
Toadette got kidnapped, which is probably a first. It certainly is a twist as opposed to Peach getting kidnapped.

Thank you for reading.

I like how they implemented the stone into the game and it can't be used outside of Story Mode.
I have a feeling that the stone lends itself to great levels, but the developers felt that it won't make for a good item in the regular toolset because of its sluggish properties. Another thing I would like to see is the Toad rescue, which are all pretty fun too. I like how one of them requires taking 10 Toads to the exit.

Thank you for reading.

The most interesting aspect of this update that it's supposedly the final major update, as if they have completed the main support for this game. In the previous Super Mario Maker, the updates come frequently, and added a lot of elements gradually that were exciting. It helps that it has Costume Mario, which is itself an opportunity to add unlikely characters like the Babymetal trio, Hello Kitty and Shaun the Sheep.

Certainly it's a substantial update, but it's strange that it's done even though it's not even a year. They might have smaller but substantial updates, but based on the way it's announced, it seems unlikely.

Thank you for reading.

Wow, so many things that were missing are introduced here! It's a shame that this is the last update, but it seems that Nintendo has changed their approach on updates. Instead of smaller, more frequent updates, SMM2 has bigger, but less frequent updates.
