Reading Time: 5 minutes A game which quickly became my most anticipated Nintendo Switch title of the first half of 2019, Super Mario Maker 2 released to much fanfare and high expectations. A sequel to the WiiU title of the same name – minus the 2 – in 2015, the Nintendo published Mario extravaganza promised creativity, freedom and ingenuity unlike anything seen in a game before.
