Nintendo Removes A Hurdle For Avid Mario Maker 2 Players
You can now upload a total of 64 levels instead of 32.
Nintendo has increased the maximum number of levels Super Mario Maker 2 players can share online. Since its launch last month, players have only been able to upload up to 32 courses to the game's online Course World hub, but that limit has now been doubled, and it appears it'll go up again with a future update.
According to an in-game notification, Nintendo plans to increase the course-upload limit one more time in the future. The company hasn't announced when the limit will be bumped up again or what the new limit will be, but in the meantime, players can now upload a maximum of 64 courses. As before, however, you'll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription in order to upload your levels and play those created by other players.
In addition to the course-limit increase, Nintendo has shared the Course ID for a new level created by the Mario Maker 2 development team. This course revolves around the Superball Flower, an obscure power-up from Super Mario Land that can be unlocked as a course part in Mario Maker 2 when you clear the game's Story mode. You can see the Course ID as well as a clip of the level in the tweet below.

We know of at least one more update still on the way for Super Mario Maker 2. During E3 2019, Nintendo confirmed it is working on an update that will allow players to play online Versus and Co-Op matches with friends. Presently, the game only allows players to play those modes online with strangers. Nintendo hasn't announced when this update is expected to go live.
Super Mario Maker 2 is available exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The game received a lot of praise from critics, including GameSpot. In our Super Mario Maker 2 review, GameSpot's Peter Brown wrote, "Whether exploring the full potential of a single element or throwing things at the wall to see what sticks, I've got the itch to join the creator's club. Mario Maker 2 makes the learning process intuitive and enjoyable. Most importantly, it's enabled designers amateur and professional alike to share their creativity with the world."
