    Those that love Super Mario Maker 2 will be delighted to know that the game's promised post-launch online multiplayer update has just gone live. Version 1.1.0 of the game, which has just gone out through the Nintendo eShop, adds in online multiplayer versus and multiplayer co-op modes, so now you can play Mario Maker courses with your friends, no matter where they are. A much-needed change has also been made to the way that the game checks for online play--prior to starting up an online match, connection stability will be checked, and will cancel the round if the players' connection would cause high latency. Whether this cuts down on the ridiculously slow low-framerate online matches between randoms remains to be seen, but theoretically, it should solve the issue.

    This is an online multiplayer update, not a local one.

    That feature should've been there from the start.

    That's apreciated! It took them a while, but here we are!

    Only Nintendo could "forget" to include such a feature in a game like this. I love and hate them for it at the same time! :P

    (this game desperately needs more features, btw)

    I'd love to see a real "search engine" in that game. Apart from that I'd say it's now almost a finished game. :P

    That's it? First update after all this time and that's all they have for us?

    Mario Maker 2 is fan service while the original was a passion project... all of the little things made it great. These slopes are overrated. Where's the LOVE!?

    Maybe they're working on a big DLC pack for the game? I wouldn't expect to have everything on the first few months after launch.

    Mario Maker 1 was something new, something, fresh, an official Reggie! for the Wii U. Mario Maker 2 was supposed to have expanded on that and added a lot more, but it ended up being a cash grab, as there aren't many new satisfying updates, aside from slopes, but slopes are slopes.
    But ignore my opinion, I'm just a pineapple.

    Personally I think the small things that they added make the game just feel a little more complete. My only complaints is that we need more variants for styles, like a Volcano or Beach theme, and that we should've been able to add any music we wanted from the New Super Mario/3D World Tracks.

    I see what you're saying, but I still feel Nintendo cheaped out a lot for this game.

    Mhm I agree a bit, I've only played a bit of online matches, and I thought the lag was horrendous...

    Nintendo has been slowly degrading to the level of Microsoft the past few years and I don't like it.

    I tried Mario Kart Tour once and I went back to playing Mario Kart Wii on the human's phone.
