Super Mario Maker 2 Storms to the Top of the Charts

It may have released just three days ago, but Super Mario Maker is selling extremely well in the UK.  Mario’s latest title entered the charts straight at number 1!  Surprisingly, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has also seen an impressive increase in sales.  This week, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe moved up to 5th place in the sales chart.   Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has moved up eight spaces from 17 to 8.  Other notable games in the UK top 20 are:

Regarding Super Mario Maker 2…

Celeste creator Matt Thorson has been creating his own Super Mario Maker 2 levels.  Celeste itself is a much-acclaimed title, well known for its superb story, level design, and tight controls.  With this in mind, I’m sure players will be eager to try out his Mario Maker creations.   The codes to Matt’s stages are as follows:

– Banzai Bounce: Q43-GXB-WHG

– Desert of Despair: H8K-3B9-WDG

– Starlight Shells: PHP-GYT-VJG

– Shrine of the Sacred Stiletto: 5YG-7DN-PGG

Splatoon themed Tetris 99 Competition Announced

Tetris 99 is probably the best reason right now to subscribe to Nintendo’s Online service.  Tetris 99 takes the well known Tetris formula and turns it into a battle royal matchup where 99 players face off against each other.  Players that manage to obtain 100 points will obtain a new Splatoon theme for Tetris 99.

That’s it from me for tonight.  If readers are interested, then you can play my own Super Mario Maker 2 stage by using the code below.
