Nintendo has announced that Super Mario Maker has sold over a million copies worldwide.
The game launched for the Wii U on September 11th, and its the 32nd game in the Super Mario franchise. This makes total sales for the entire Super Mario franchise over 310 million units since its launch 30 years ago.
Nintendo also confirmed that over 2.2 million courses have been made in Super Mario Maker, with a combined total plays of roughly 75 million.
Nintendo has published a new trailer for Super Mario Maker.
Featured above, the new trailer shows off more of the level-making shenanigans you’d expect, however there is something new in there: a playable Bowser form. The game has already been confirmed to allow players to use amiibo to make Mystery Suit mushrooms (which can transform Mario into the Wii Fit Trainer, Link, etc).
However, the new trailer shows off the Mystery Suit mushroom turning Mario into his very own nemesis, Bowser. You’ll need the Bowser amiibo to make this happen, but you can still play as Bowser even without his amiibo, providing you download a level made by a player with Bowser in it.
Coming from this, you’ll be able to have Bowser-on-Bowser fights, which can result in some interesting scenarios.
Super Mario Maker is launching on September 10th in Japan and on September 11th in both North America and Europe.
Meagan Marie looks absolutely adorable as a female Mario from Super Mario Brothers. She is a cosplayer and lifelong gamer who works at Crystal Dynamics working on the next Tomb Raider installment! She spends her free time at local conventions, reading comics, working on costumes, talking to her cat or surfing teh interwebs for inspiration. This cosplay debuted in the 2012 Cosplay for a Cause Calendar which raised over $30,000 for the Japanese Red Cross! Amazing!! We were lucky to get some copies signed by a few of the cosplayers which proudly adorned our office walls. 🙂
It’s-a me, Mario! Mamma mia!
