Super Mario Maker has been a smash hit with both critics and fans alike, as Nintendo has revealed that the game has sold over 1 million units worldwide.
Not only that, but players have also created over 2.2 million levels with the game, which they also revealed have been played close to 75 million times.
Here’s what Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime had to say about it:
“For Mario fans around the world, including myself, Super Mario Maker was a dream 30 years in the making. The game has captured and unlocked the imaginations of gaming fans of all ages and brought their dedication to Nintendo to a whole new level.”
Castlevania’s Koji “IGA” Igarashi may be hard at work on developing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time to have some fun with Super Mario Maker.
Polygon invited IGA to sit down with them and have a go at the new game from Nintendo, and as you can tell from the video above he is having an absolute blast. He seems to get a real kick out of adding Bowser at the very beginning of the level to throw people off guard, and it would be pretty cool if you could get him to stalk Mario for the entire level.
Super Mario Maker launches exclusively for the Wii U tomorrow, September 11th. So far the game has been getting rave reviews and will be sure to be another great entry to the loyal Wii U owners’ libraries.
If you don’t have a Wii U or Mario Kart 8 but want both of them (and DLC), then do I have a surprise for you! A new Wii U with Mario Kart 8 and its DLC has been announced by Nintendo, which retails for $299.99 in the US. However, Mario Kart 8 is not packaged physically with the console and comes pre-installed on the system.
Nintendo also has a Super Mario Maker Wii U bundle in various regions. That game is set to launch later this week on September 11th, and pre-release buzz for the game has been extremely positive. The Wii U keeps becoming more and more of a quality system to own, whether or not its detractors want to admit it!
The 2D platformer Mario games are classics in the purest sense of the word, with the games remaining just as challenging and fun today as they were when they released decades ago. Nintendo is tapping into those days with a nostalgia trailer for the upcoming Super Mario Maker.
The game is both a 2D Mario platformer and a 2D Mario platformer creator, with the game containing 100 levels for you to try and beat while also giving you the tools to make your own. You can use assets from each of the classic Mario platformers in the video, which can result in some truly ridiculous levels.
Super Mario Maker will release exclusively for the Wii U on September 11th. Check out the nostalgia trailer for the game directly below.
Super Mario Maker has been getting a lot of buzz lately, and now Nintendo has confirmed a release date for the game. It will launch on September 11th exclusively for the Wii U.
It was also revealed that the game would support Amiibo, with different figurines having different effects inside of the game. Other than that, they just showed how easy it is to make your own crazy levels for yourself and others to try and best.
Check out the trailer for Super Mario Maker below.
So, the game that allowed you to make your own Mario levels that was announced last year is now called Super Mario Maker. I assume this is because people don’t just want a regular Mario Maker – they want a SUPER one – so Nintendo happily obliged.
As far as what the game looks like, itself, well… it’s absolutely bat poop crazy. The game was shown and played as the final game at the Nintendo World Championship, which gives a quick look at some of the crazy creations some truly mentally disturbed people came up with. As if the older 2D sidescrollers weren’t challenging enough, now lets fill them with a bajillion flames and spikes to make you hate your life even more.
