Super Mario Maker 2 will add friend matchmaking in update

Nintendo might do a lot of things pretty well, but online play seems to be a realm that often eludes the big N. Thankfully the company is listening to reason this time around and it will update Super Mario Maker 2 so that you can play online with your friends instead of just randoms.

When Super Mario Maker 2 was announced, fans were pretty excited until the details of the multiplayer were revealed. A game to play with friends, but… you would match up with complete strangers instead. What? Apparently Nintendo was worried about teams working together to dominate the leaderboards…

Thankfully there has been a change of heart. Super Mario Maker 2 producer Takashi Tezuka said on Treehouse Live that friend matchmaking will be available in a future update. So maybe it won’t be available when the game launches, but there is something to look forward to.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
