Coming up with ideas for your own courses in Super Mario Maker 2 can be quite the challenge, especially if you're not usually the imaginative, creative type. If you fall into this category, you might want to check out the video above.

The game's producer, Takashi Tezuka, has shared five tips for course creation. Whether you're lacking the inspiration to get started or simply hoping for advice on how to get the most out of your designs, hopefully some of these tips can help spark a new idea.

If you haven't seen it already, we'd also urge you to check out our brand new Super Mario Maker 2 community page. There, all Nintendo Life readers are encouraged to share their designs with one another using our nifty course sharing tool, and you can always ask others for feedback or advice, too.

How have you been getting on with the game? Any courses you're proud of yet, or have you been enjoying playing other people's courses instead? Let us know in the comments.
