Failstream Begins Upload Attempts On Fail’s Flotilla 4

Failstream, the creator of Fail’s Flotilla: Final Flight, has finished building the successor to his “Impossible Cape Level”. The Fail’s Flotilla levels have been steadily increasing in difficulty. Final Flight took Failstream 481 hours to upload. After that, he vowed never to make a sequel. Then came Mario Maker 2…

Did Failstream once again make an even more difficult level? Will this one drive him truly crazy? Only time will tell. Check out the trailer if you want a preview of what Fail’s life will look like for the foreseeable future.

Upload attempts on Fail’s Flotilla 4 will start on September 17, 2019. You can watch live on Failstream’s Twitch channel.

Featured Level: Castle of Aya : Revive by Aya

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.

ChainChompBraden Gets 5th Nai on Trials of Death

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.

Check out ChainChompBraden’s twitch stream if you want to watch the attempts live.

If you didn’t catch it live, you can watch a clip of nai 5.

Another Day, Another Trailer

As we’re getting closer to the release of Super Mario Maker 2 on June 28th, more and more information about the game is getting released. This time it’s another gameplay trailer. The trailer starts a bit slow, but as soon as Mario enters the sub world, things start to get a little crazy. New enemies, new pow blocks, and a whole bunch of other stuff we haven’t seen before.

Check out the video on Nintendo of Japan’s Instagram page.

Edit: There’s a trailer as well, showing a bit more cat mario action:

Super Mario Maker 2 Announcement Trailer

Nope, this isn’t a new trailer. We’re just including it here for archival purposes. In a couple of years we can all laugh at how this game was originally supposed to look (although since it’s coming out in a few months it’s possible there won’t be any noticeable changes). Still, can’t have a Super Mario Maker site without a Super Mario Maker 2 announcement trailer, so here it is:
