As we reported in recent weeks, Nintendo had officially confirmed that in Super Mario Maker 2, the new chapter of the series on the finishing straight on Switch at the end of the month, it would not allow users to play with their friends in online mode, nor in co-op or competitive.
The big N had justified this decision by saying that “matchmaking and competitive play would be compromised if you could play with friends”. Despite these statements, the players have certainly not been satisfied once they heard the news, and have expressed their noisy discontent on the forums and social media channels of the Japanese company.
So noisy, that the voices came to Nintendo’s ears, convincing her to re-examine the situation. As announced during the Treehouse that is currently taking place at E3 in Los Angeles, and as reiterated then on Twitter, the Kyoto company has preferred to take a step back and please its fans:
“Mr. Tezuka has confirmed that the possibility of playing multiplayer online with his friends is coming to Super Mario Maker 2 through a future update”, is what we can read thanks to the twittering found at the bottom of the news.
Recall that Super Mario Maker 2 will be released exclusively on Nintendo Switch on June 28th.
Mr. Tezuka has confirmed that the ability to play online multiplayer with friends is coming to #SuperMarioMaker2 in a future update. Stay tuned for more information to come. https://t.co/oxGuEcJ8Om pic.twitter.com/1AfK1vEGIe
