NPUK X SMM2 Building the Kingdom – Luigi’s New Mansion

Nintendo communities from around the United Kingdom are once again looking for the best creators from around the nation in a brand new Super Mario Maker 2 level creation competition.

Today’s commission comes from none other than Big Boo himself. With Luigi currently exploring the ghastly halls of Last Resort, Big Boo thought Mario’s weakling of a… ahem, I mean STRONG brother should really go back to his roots by building a great big mansion full of great horrors delights.

We all know just how much Luigi loves the Boos, so this mansion should be full of them. Big Boo is also sure that Luigi would very much appreciate the complexity of haunted architecture so much so he would get completely ‘lost’ in the design. Finally, it is well known that Luigi is fond of magic, so it’s only right to make the expected unexpected.

If you’re feeling really creative and daring, you don’t necessarily have to use the ghost house theme… you could, for example, build a haunted pyramid themed mansion!

You’ll have until Monday 14th October 17:00 UK time to submit your level to your local NPUK Community. Don’t know where your’s is? You can use this tool to find out now! The top two levels from each community, shortlisted by an elusive judging panel, will then go into a national vote, where the top three levels will claim victory, as well as a sweet little prize!

Find out more about this competition here, and best of luck to you all!

REVIEW – Super Mario Maker 2

It’s likely that, when Nintendo first released Super Mario for the NES back in 1985, they would’ve never imagined that they would launch a game that allow players to create their own levels… with a sequel to boot! Builder Mario is back, this time tagged along with Builder Luigi in Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch.

Does Super Mario Maker 2 provide a canvas for a masterpiece, or is it more like a disasterpiece? Find out in our review, after the break.

New Mario Maker Costume Turns ‘Ewe’ Into Shaun the Sheep

With all the madness of switching hosts and transferring the brand new forums over, we can finally get back into working action, and what better to start us off by seeing this new crossover in one of our favourite games?

Last week, Nintendo’s most recent collaboration with Aardman, the creative lot behind ‘Wallace and Gromit’, and ‘Shaun the Sheep’, came into fruition. Grab the Mystery Mushroom in the new ‘Shaun’s Mossy Mole Mischief’ Event Course, and you’ll be clad in a fleecy wool just like Shaun the Sheep.

What’s this? You don’t know ‘what’ Shaun the Sheep is? Shaun the Sheep is a BAFTA winning children’s television programme which has also spawned a feature length movie. The show follows the life of Shaun, a mischievous sheep from Mossy Bottom Farm, where every day is full of excitement and chaos, all behind the back of Mossy Bottom’s farmer!

Check out the press release after the break!
