Aya, known for making very hard NSMBU speedrun levels in SMM1, is back for more in SMM2. In case you’re thinking about grabbing first clear, beware: This is not for beginners. It’s probably also not for intermediate or advanced players. Maybe you should just watch the video to see what you’re getting yourself into.
GG to Aya for uploading this. Let’s see who’s up for the challenge.
Level ID: 61K-WFJ-2PF
Edit: The level has been beaten in less than 2 days. Is it easier than it looks, or is the player that beat it just incredibly good at NSMBU as well? Either way, GG to おうちゃん, which translates to Ouchan (according to Google Translate). The level now stands at 1/5210.
While most of us are building and playing Mario Maker 2 levels, ChainChompBraden hasn’t slowed down one bit trying to clear his Mario Maker 1 kaizo masterpiece, and just got his 5th nai on Trials of Death. After one-shotting his latest buff, the triple p-switch jump, he was stopped once again just inches from the axe that marks the end of the level.
For those that don’t know: Once Braden finally gets the clear and uploads Trials of Death, it will most likely be the hardest level in not only Mario Maker, but in any game ever (not including TAS of course). Braden has been trying to beat the level since late 2015, making it harder every time he came close to beating it. Since the buffs are getting fewer and further apart, we seem to be getting real close to the end of this journey.
We all thought a course limit of 32 was a bit low compared to SMM1’s 100 limit (when you unlocked all medals). Apparently Nintendo did too, because they just doubled everyone’s limit to 64, and are planning to increase it one more time in the future, presumably back to 100 again.
You probably don’t need a news article telling you this (especially not one that’s a day late because we were too busy playing), but Super Mario Maker 2 has officially been released!
There’s no telling what people will come up with in the near future, but there’s no doubt the levels will be a mix of creativity, crazy tech, silly contraptions and probably a little bit of hot garbage sprinkled in as well.
Whether you’re playing Story Mode, Endless Mode, or just creating and playing levels: Have fun!
The game isn’t even out yet, but we have our first SMM2 tournament! It’s still a while from now (October 24-27), but it’s great to see there’s so much hype for the new game. We already have some big name signups like ThaBeast721, LordPickleKing and Brunastico, and more are probably following in the coming days.
