Last month, it was revealed you would not be able to play with your friends online in Super Mario Maker 2. This news came with a wave of backlash and criticism, and soon after during E3, Nintendo announced the feature would be coming in a later update.

Things aren’t all too good for Super Mario Maker 2, however. Kotaku revealed that the ability to select stage blocks and edit the stage you’re working on is only available using touch controls, and that the thumb sticks would be used to navigate the level instead.

This is certainly going to affect some people’s experiences, as players in portable mode would have to use a stylus, or rely on tabletop mode, disconnecting the Joy-Con from the system in order to use them.

Luckily, there’s a preorder bonus for Super Mario Maker 2 that includes a stylus, so you’d be able to edit levels from the get go, while using an official stylus.

Super Mario Maker 2 launches June 28 for the Nintendo Switch.
