You can now play Super Mario Maker 2 online with friends.

Nintendo promised back in June it would patch in the ability to play Super Mario Maker 2 online with friends. It delivered yesterday with an update to the game.

When Super Mario Maker 2 was announced, it was revealed the game’s online modes could not be played with friends, only random people. Folks were reasonable upset, so Nintendo decided to listen to fans and patch the option in sometime after release.

With yesterday’s patch, you can now play online with your friends in either co-op or Multiplayer Versus mode.

Elsewhere in the patch notes it states the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app is now supported. This will allow you automatically match with people via the app and even voice chat.

New features have been added to Nearby Play, LAN Play was added, and you can  now select Play Together directly from any course uploaded to a player’s profile.

Full patch notes are below.
