On Nintendo Treehouse: Live, Takahashi Tezuka has confirmed that the development team is working on a Super Mario Maker 2 update that will let you play with friends online.

“We’re going to be making some changes to matching with friends that you can play,” Tezuka explained soon after the segment had started.

This comes in response to a backlash from fans, after it had emerged that players would be unable to play with friends online in the Multiplayer Versus and Multiplayer Co-op modes. Now, that will soon change in the coming months.

In Super Mario Maker 2, you will once again have the chance to play, create and share your own courses, with access to even more tools, items, and features than in the original Super Mario Maker – which went on to sell more than four million copies worldwide on Wii U.

The game’s creation tools will let you surprise and frustrate other players around the world with your mischievous and devious designs, using visual styles from games such as Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, New Super Mario Bros. U, and Super Mario 3D World.

Super Mario Maker 2 will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on June 28th.
