Yesterday Nintendo had the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct, and it showed a barrage of features that we could barely keep up with. There are so many new features and elements coming to this sequel, and yet fans were thirsting to learn more about it. As usual, fans flocked to Reddit, and one of these fans managed to find some secret information on the Japanese Nintendo page of the game, uncovering secrets that weren't shown in the presentation.

Reddit user u/kurobake wrote a comprehensive and nicely organized post sharing his many findings. First of all, there's an unlisted YouTube video that you can see below, showing the very basics of course creation with many common features in action. Some of these features include different colored pipe options indicating variable speeds, which will allow you to control the speed of whatever pops out of the pipes.

You can also see in some screenshots of some of the themes for the basic styles of Super Mario Maker 2: desert, snow, forest, and castle. Another unlisted video shows the mechanics of an enemy called the Bully:

A long scroll of screenshots shows many themes and tilesets, as well as the Mega Mushroom. In another unlisted video, you can listen to some of the audio for the presentation without the voiceover. During a segment of the 3D World, it plays a track from Mario Kart.

Another video shows Mario going through the ghost house in 3D World as the Super Mario Bros. 3 ghost house music plays, and in another video of the underground in 3D World you get Super Mario Bros. 3 underground music. Some Reddit users noted a category designed as a disc, so it's possible there will be more music customization for your courses.
