Mario Maker Stylus

Just a few hours ago, Nintendo finally gave us a solid release date for Super Mario Maker 2. The game will be arriving on 28th June, letting us dive into the crazy world of Mario level creation once more, but there's something else worth pointing out.

If you're thinking of picking up a copy of the game, you might want to consider pre-ordering it ahead of its release. Those who do will be able to get their hands on this Switch stylus, perfect for playing the game in handheld mode and also doubling up as the first ever official stylus released for the console.

A Super Mario Maker 2 Limited Edition bundle which will include this stylus - and a 12-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, no less - will be available from select retailers at launch. In a lovely touch, those who want to buy the game digitally can also get in on the action; a digital bundle will also be offered featuring both of these extras (the stylus will be provided via a My Nintendo code).

At the time of writing, these bundles have been confirmed for both Europe and Japan. Here's hoping North America soon follows suit.

Will you be grabbing one of these?
