There was a lot to learn about each of Nintendo's upcoming Switch titles on the first day of Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3 2019. When the localisation team sat down alongside Super Mario Maker 2 producer Takashi Tezuka, viewers were able to learn a little bit more about what to expect from the building game arriving in a few weeks time.
If you missed the live stream, or don't already know about this particular morsel of info regarding the follow-up to the Wii U original, read on. In the game's story mode, there's a 'Part' icon in the bottom left side of the screen. During a preview of a night level, we got to see how exactly it functions.
If you're struggling with a course, the game will notice this and Luigi's course parts will become accessible, allowing you to select from a small assortment of helpful items such as stars, mushrooms and even blocks to modify the course.
In a translation, Tezuka explained how the Luigi assist mode allowed everyone to play through levels, regardless of their experience:
"I wanted to make sure that there was something for people who might have trouble with these stages, so that they would also be able to make their way through it - so include some way to help people that might not be as advanced as other players.
Tezuka further explained how it is a game about making after all, and it's a very "light-hearted" addition:
"This is a game about making, so I thought it would fun if there was a way to include a little bit of course making, even when you're playing a course, like this, so we included this Luigi assist mode.
"I wanted people to just have a light-hearted casual way to be able to add some making elements to courses while they were playing them...That means you don't have to persevere"
