According to Nintendo’s internal sales figures, Super Mario Maker has sold one million units worldwide since its launch earlier this month. This number includes standalone physical, digital, and bundled units. Additionally, Nintendo has said that more than 2.2 million courses have been created and, combined, they have been played almost 75 million times.
Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, had this to say about the game: “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.”
Fans of the game already know that the game has already developed a relatively healthy meta filled with some truly devious content, all player created. Levels like the infamous “Pit of Panga: P-Break” have been known to inspire both intense frustration and joy. If this was Nintendo’s goal, they have been more than successful.
Our own Adriel Rangel thinks there could have been a bit more control with regards to the quality of content put forth by players, as there are definitely some levels out there that leave much to be desired. But, overall, he felt the game lived up to the premise. Check out his full review here.
