Nintendo has confirmed earlier today that Super Mario Maker will have a North American release date of September 11th of this year.
2015 marks the 30th anniversary of Super Mario, and Nintendo is celebrating this milestone by giving the players the power to create their own custom Super Mario levels.
Creators will also have the ability to upload their creations onto a Nintendo server where other creators can play each others levels. To coincide with Mario’s anniversary, Nintendo will be releasing an 8-bit, classic Mario that can be used with Super Mario Maker.
Creators will also have the ability to build fun filled 8-bit levels, but also have the ability to convert it instantly to the graphics of NES Super Mario Bros. 3, SNES Super Mario World as well as New Super Mario Bros. Wii U.
This is a true fan service from Nintendo, taking their most revered mascot and giving him over directly to the fans. The possibilities for level creation of this game are endless, and the Gamepad will show it’s true potential for the Wii U.
