A Super Mario Maker 2 Nintendo Direct Is Coming Tomorrow

A short surprise just ahead of the big dance.

Good news for block-builders anxious to see what's next for making Marios: Nintendo has announced a surprise Nintendo Direct tomorrow, focused on the upcoming Super Mario Maker 2.

The bite-sized Direct will be "roughly" 15 minutes, and looks to center squarely on the Maker sequel coming June 28 to the Nintendo Switch. The broadcast will start at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET on Nintendo's channels.

The anticipated sequel to one of the Wii U's greatest gems, the game is also on the heels of reports about Nintendo's potential Switch hardware revision. There's also a Mario Maker stylus on the way, if you're in one of the regions that it is available.
