Below are the full patch notes:

Nintendo has announced a new milestone for Super Mario Maker 2. Since launch, players have uploaded over 10 million courses worldwide.

Today’s news was celebrated by increasing the number of levels players can share online to a maximum of 100.

Here’s a brief video celebrating the milestone:

Super Mario Maker 2 originally limited players to uploading up to 32 courses online. Then at the end of July, the cap was increased to 64. It has now been raised once again.

Following a bit of maintenance, Super Mario Maker 2 players can now upload a maximum of 100 courses. This is expected to be the final increase for the game. Nintendo had said in July that it would be raising the limit “one more time”, so that should be it.

SNK will be launching the Switch version of Samurai Shodown in the west on February 25, an eShop listing reveals. It was previously given a vague Q1 2020 release window.

Samurai Shodown can now be pre-loaded from the North American eShop, including a Deluxe Pack. The bundle includes the game as well as a season pass featuring Rimururu, Basara, Kazuki Kazama, and Wan-Fu.

At the end of October, Mary Skelter 2 was refused classification in Australia. The game did not receive its rating and was essentially banned in the region. Yet a couple of months later, it seems a release has happened after all.

Mary Skelter 2 popped up on the Australian eShop earlier today without any prior notice. It’s carrying an understandably high R 18+ rating, but there don’t appear to be any changes to the game’s content.

Those who are interested in the title can currently get it at 20 percent off in Australia.
