May get the bundle with the 12 months online, if you can stack it upon a existing sub

I miss playing Splatoon online, so the sub edition is looking pretty enticing to me right now. Hope it is priced reasonably.

Was it possible to play through the original games on Mario Maker 1? I'd love to play through Mario Bros 3 again on this

You couldn't play them in Mario Maker, but you can play Mario Bros 1, 2 and 3 for "free" if you buy Nintendo Online on the Switch.

While I'm not a huge fan of gameXplain in general (They're narrration style irritates me), they posted this which seem to confirm Cat Bowser.

I really don’t understand why Nintendo are starving us of information on this.

E3 is too close to the June 28th release to start the hype cycle. Still a chance of a MM2 Direct in the next few weeks I suppose but still. This could be a huge title for them this summer.

Goombrats... apparently

I think they come from 3D World originally, but I don't remember them.

Nintendo has updated the game bundles in the Official Nintendo Store. Perhaps I'm being a bit grumpy, but it's getting a bit confusing now. I wonder if a stylus is gonna be pretty much an "essential" for the game? I know that you can use the analog sticks, but perhaps those controls are a bit clunky? Thinking back to Maker on the U, I could imagine that the stylus would be more speedy and accurate.

It's not clear if the stylus will come as standard from all retailers or just the Nintendo Store. I was gonna go digital - and there were murmurs that you'd be able to get the stylus posted to you separately - but there hasn't been any more news about this. But... I like the steelbook... and I think that is a Nintendo Store exclusive.

Tl;dr Nintendo is making the task of buying the game way too complicated :lol: .

You can just buy any similar stylus for a few quid from pretty much anywhere, it won't be necessary but it will probably improve the experience. Don't worry about it.

I've got my pants in a bit of a twist about stylus for touchscreens. I know this thread has touched (ta-daa) on this before but I remain uncertain that the Switch's type of touch screen is as accurate as the Wii U's type. I guess I'm just a little apprehensive that this version of the game won't be as intuitive to use as the original. I want it to be superb, of course! :-) .

Accuracy is fine, it's just harder to be precise because of the larger contact area with a finger/capacitive stylus designed to replicate a finger. I don't think it will be too much of an issue with Mario Maker because everything is grid-based, but yes I do worry it won't be as nice to use. That's as much me worrying about holding the switch one-handed as it is the touch screen.

Tomorrow we'll be able to say SMM2 launches next month and we've still only had a single two minute trailer from Nintendo.

Surely they'll show more before E3?

Yeah, that's right, Orange - it's the precision and "ease-of-use" aspects that concern me. On the Gamepad it was a breeze to select and place itemsand my thinking is that, yeah, the new styles will probably "do the job" but, for folk who are used to the slick building of the original version, it may be a little frustrating.

Oh, man, I hadn't considered this aspect! Although the Gamepad's [Ad7]Fisher-Price[/Ad7] (Ad7 :wub: ) styling was bulky, it could easily be held with one hand and I'm not so sure the "holding the Switch with one hand whilst using a stylus with the other" approach will work well.

Don't get me wrong, guys - I want this version to be brilliant and I want to dive into more awesome AYAMMM? events... but, having seen relatively little of the game so far, it feels as if there are questions to be resolved. I'm eager to hear of "hands-on" experiences :-) .
