After downloading the free Version 1.1.0 update in the Super Mario Maker 2 game, players have the ability to play co-op and versus multiplayer with people on their Nintendo Switch friends list.
The update lets players with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription play with their friends in versus or Co-op, in addition to the previously available option to play with randomly selected players. While playing with friends, they will also be able to select the difficulty in Course World and choose which courses to play from their list of locally saved courses in Coursebot.
The free software update also adds a list of Official Makers in the Leaderboards section. Here, players can find new courses made by Official Makers, as well as ones created for collaborations or special events, like the courses played in Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational 2019.
Other features added after downloading the update include the ability to use both touch-screen and button controls when creating courses in Handheld mode.
Super Mario Maker 2 is available on the Nintendo Switch. It can be purchased physically from gaming retailers or purchased digitally from the Nintendo eShop.
