over the past weeks I have posted a lot of videos of things I'd like to see in Super Mario maker 2 and this week we got a 15 minutes Nintendo Direct presentation that revealed a lot of stuff and to be honest it was one of the most hype 15 minutes of my entire life it truly was a great presentation you got to see it for sure now this gave me the idea of comparing my list of what I wanted with what was announced during the direct so today we'll take a look back at my seven previous Super Mario maker to prediction videos and see what was revealed and what wasn't let's do this the first video I posted was about power-ups that I wanted to see in the game and to be honest there were not a lot of new things on that topic during the direct I wanted the mini mushroom it wasn't confirmed the super acorn was also absent from the whole presentation although we sought a return of the propeller suit at first I thought the hammer suit wasn't in the game but if we take a look at the Japanese Mario maker direct it seems to be the mega mushroom was not revealed but to be honest it's kind of a game breaking power-ups so I wasn't really expecting that one although we do have confirmation that the big funny mushroom from the first game is back a lot was revealed about Super Mario 3d World but the double cherry was not part of that reveal same thing for a penguin suit which was nowhere to be found sadly the boomerang suit was not part of the presentation and I kind of expected this one to be in the Mario 3d World segment at least so I'm really disappointed the people hoon received no love either it's also the same thing for the blue Koopa shell which wasn't part of the direct finally my number one pick the Frog suit was not shown in the trailer out of all my picks it seems that only one out of ten is in the final game for now so not that good but not that bad the new power-ups that we're introducing the direct were kind of cool though we now have the dry bones shell which allows us to float on lava and also become invulnerable for a couple of seconds that's pretty cool we now have big coins which give out a lot of coins that's gross you radio she is a version of Yoshi that spits out fireballs so yeah that's kind of cool is Yoshi or Farah I don't know but let's put it there for now we also now have the rotten mushroom which seems to be exactly like the poison mushroom aka a powerup to avoid at all cost now let's check out my second video ten blocks I want to see and hopefully I'll get a better score on that one my first peak was the Canon bucks from Mario 3d World and although we've seen lots of things about that game theme this block was nowhere to be found the propeller block was not part of the direct eater but then again we have the propeller suit so it's kind of the same thing next up I talked about the light box which wasn't part of the trailer although we've seen that we can now have some dark levels in the ghost house theme so you know there's still hope that it might appear at one point the expansion block also was not in the direct but considering this one is from the Yoshi franchise I wasn't really expecting it to be there my next pick was the grab block a block that you could grab and bring with you and while this exact block wasn't the one that was revealed the crates were revealed allowing you to bring them to create bridges above lava and water the platform blocks from mario world were not part of the directs sadly and I don't think they will be in the game at all for my next big I wanted a message block of some sort or you know at least a way to communicate with other players and we kind of got that because you can now see that we can leave descriptions to our levels meaning we'll be able to communicate a little bit but wait a minute I then asked immediately for a drawing block and while this is not exactly what we'll get in the final game will now be able to leave drawings and comments for other people to see kind of like what we could do with miiverse before it went under in the original game I haven't seen any giant blocks in the presentation so I think they won't be part of the final game and finally my last pick was the roulette block which will allow you to add multiple power-ups inside of it but sadly it also wasn't part of the direct I got three out of the ten things I wanted so that's still kind of good to me new blocks that I didn't think about were also shown which was super cool like the warp box from 3d world a spike block which can even work with the unev switches so that's gonna be great but the blinking blocks from 3d world still the cake you know those blots that appear and disappear with the music those blocks are so cool and they're gonna be part of how you make her – so I'm super stoked for those my next video West about the enemies I wanted to see in Mario maker – and my first big there was the bus bass you know that annoying fish that wants to eat you and while this exact same one wasn't there we did see the porky puffer in the 3d World theme so you know I'm gonna go ahead and accept this alternative without any hesitations they act the same they're both annoying fishes I'm so sad for my next big the fuzzy cuz he was nowhere to be found in the presentation and I think it would be so great to have them I then talked about Banzai bills and at the time my blanked out and didn't see them they were right there in the first trailer but I don't know I'm kind of lying anyways there now even more confirm and we can even have the homing version of the bends I bill now can we give this guy a mushroom and turn it into king bill well only time will tell the fire snakes were my next pick and they were not indirect although a way bigger scarier version the char Varg is that how you say that anyway this enemy was shown to be there in the Mario 3d World theme so I still give myself a point okay Fire Dragons fire snakes same difference the bruisers were not in the game sadly and it's a shame I'd like to have more ghost themed enemies we now have the desert theme confirming the direct but still no sign of pokey were spoken in Tendo gimme pokey everybody wants pokey give us pokey then I asked for a fire Bros and rose and while the boomerang ones are nowhere to be found we have confirmation that the fire bros are indeed in the game as well as a bigger version of those guys so that's pretty cool from what I have seen the charging chuck still hasn't been confirmed in the direct so this is a to be continued my next pick was the spikes but they were also not there I mean that works so fine with a new sloped system I don't get why they were not shown in that announcement maybe later I don't know so I got four enemies right so that's kind of good I'm happy about it but besides what my picks were we also saw the angry Sun the nice moon which is more of a powerup than an enemy but whatever the twisters are also there and from 3d world we have a lot of enemies like the skip squeak the piranha creeper those ants the pea pods the bullies and that weird trampoline guy enemy thing that's a lot of new enemies and this is so cool so my next video was about platforms that I wanted to see in Mario maker 2 and the first one on the list is the bouncing cloud and while I'm not sure we got these ones we got the trampoline mushroom platform so you know what I'm eating myself a point here my next pick the stretch mushroom wasn't actually shown in the trailers sadly although the mushroom platforms are back so that's pretty cool neither the countdown platform nor the enemy platform were shown in the trailer but to be fair considering these platforms were very specific to the levels they were built for I wasn't really expecting them to make a comeback in Mario maker to my next big were the arrow platform and those were not shown either but my next entry the spinning mushroom was actually revealed okay it's not a mushroom no more and it's actually called a seesaw but it counts it is a platform that twists left and right depending on where Mario is on top of it so that's a win I remember asking for living platforms like Dory or those flying things but sadly this won't be happening my next big the scale lifts were shown in the trailer and I'm really bummed down about it I was actually certain these would make the cut being iconic platforms that were there in the very first mario game and it was also certain that the paddle wheel would be in the reveal but alas it wasn't bummer so I only got two platforms out of the ten I wanted but to be fair it's not like Nintendo actually talked a lot about platforms during the presentation all right now we're getting into the good stuff the features I want to see in Mario maker 2 and let me tell you there were lots of features revealed in that direct let's begin with my first big the world maps and while these were not properly shown we have been blessed with a story mode featuring a castle to rebuild characters to talk to and hundreds of stages to play on so you know what I'll give myself a point here a world map a story mode same thing I really expected a Super Mario Land 2 theme to be announced during the Darracq but there wasn't anything new on that particular topic although if you take a look at the game's theme menu over there there is clearly a space where an other theme could fit so hey you never know we might have more themes coming as DLC I then asked for more amiibo costumes and to be able to use them in themes other than the original Super Mario Bros theme but there was nothing mentioned about that surprisingly we didn't even see a single amiibo related thing I'm not even sure if amiibo are going to be supported for that game what am I gonna do it all of those now my next peak vertical levels were finally properly announced look at all those levels they are beautiful I then asked for a way to add more challenges to a level you know no coins defeating certain enemies and Nintendo actually implemented a really cool chorus requirement option where you can set certain rules for the player to be able to clear a level such as collecting all of the coins or defeating a certain number of enemies are not taking damage at all this is super cool I'm so happy added that I then asked for more characters in the game and oh boy was I happy when they announced the online multiplayer mode which will allow you to play as Luigi toad and toadette I then asked for more customization option such as the ability to have coloured pipes which was also shown to be a thing yes we'll also be able to change gravity and certain themes control lava and poison water levels said the theme today or night and even more using the on/off switch we'll also be able to add a little bit of programming goodness to the level so that's exactly what I asked for my next request was an easier way to share and discover levels and while the courses ID seemed to still be a thing they are now way shorter meaning I'll have an easier time fighting good levels plus we can now search by game by theme even add tags to our levels to better describe them and I think this is exactly what the course world needed I then asked for multiplayer levels and you already knew this was all confirmed in the direct and oh boy is this amazing I cannot wait to play some levels online with my few words on stream or you know with the members of – world my final request was a way to create levels with your buddies and while the final system in place might not be as extensive as what I asked for it is now possible to build levels with one of your buddy via local co-op which is just great this feature is gonna be one of my favorite for sure so out of all my 10 requests 8 were revealed to be in Mario maker 2 which is just insane that this game is going to be epic my next video was about the themes I wanted to see in the game and a couple were revealed so you know we're going to quickly go over what I asked and what I got I asked for a volcano theme and I didn't get it I asked for the mountain theme and I didn't get it I asked for the tank theme and while it wasn't actually talked about in the direct this part of the trailer really bugs me right now it doesn't look like any of the reveal theme and it really looks like it could be a tank theme or maybe I'm just seeing things that aren't there I'll leave this up to you I then asked for a snow theme and it was finally revealed and ho boy does it look phenomenal it even has those icicles I wanted troll levels here I come the beach level I asked for was not shown which is kind of sad but then I asked for a jungle slash forest theme and my wish was granted with a beautiful forest theme that looks fantastic and even has the poison water I wanted so bad my next peak the underground sewer was nowhere to be found but considering it only appeared in like two or three levels in the entire Mario universe it was kind of obvious that it wouldn't be there the sky theme I asked for has been confirmed and looks amazing it even has the rainbow platform so I'm super stoked for it the tower theme wasn't confirmed to be in the game but since we now have vertical levels I suppose I can accept a castle theme to be a suitable replacement and finally the beautiful dark theme that looks like a painting wasn't shown sadly which is a shame so you know I got three themes right and maybe four depending on well this is supposed to be we'll see and finally my last video that I posted last week the top ten buses I want to see was quickly shut down as there weren't a lot of buses shown during the trailer you know beside boom boom pom-pom and meowser and out of those three in my video I asked for pom pom so I got one right there but sadly no Reznor no dry Bowser no bird oh no King boo no giant Goomba no histo crap and sadly no submarine Bowser jr. were reveal and it looks like we're not even getting the Koopalings which really makes me sad to be honest so yeah in conclusion I'm super satisfied with everything Nintendo has revealed for Super Mario maker 2 and I'm certain there's plenty more that they just haven't talked about yet only time will tell in the meantime if you excuse me I have to go pre-order Super Mario maker 2 right now to be able to play it as soon as it comes out thanks a lot

  2. Us: Give us the cool powerups!
    Us: Screw you morons

  3. With all of the stuff that hasn’t been announced, and this game being only a month away from release, I have a big feeling that Nintendo is going to add paid DLC to this game, which will leave me and millions of other people pissed off. We already paid $60 for an upgrade over SMM, and now we have to pay more for features that should have been in the game? smh
    I’m still hyped for this game, but if they’re gonna use DLC, then they better make it free.
