Super Mario Maker 2

Nintendo has announced the latest milestone for Super Mario Maker 2. Since launch, players have uploaded over 26 million courses online.

Last September, that number was at 20 million.

Super Mario Maker 2 launched for Switch in June 2019. The last major update went live in April 2020, adding new features like the ability to create a world map.


Nintendo plans to celebrate Super Mario’s 35th anniversary with all sorts of games, events, and merchandise over the next few months. One part of this involves a Ninji Speedrun challenge. While the Nintendo Direct from a few days ago mentioned that it will be taking place in November, it may have been originally planned to be held much earlier in the year.

Nintendo Everything reader Wipeoutjack7 informed us about a “Super Mario Maker 2 35th Anniversary Challenge” page. However, it seems that it can’t be found directly on Nintendo’s website.

The page mentions:

Nintendo has announced a new milestone for Super Mario Maker 2. Since launch, players from all over the world have created and shared over 20 million courses online.

That’s double the amount that had been previously announced. The number stood at 10 million back in January, which Nintendo had confirmed at the time.

Super Mario Maker 2 is available now on Switch.


Nintendo is done with major updates for Super Mario Maker 2, but the game did receive a small patch today. The game is now at version 3.0.1.

The main change concerns Ninji Time Attack. Those that pause while playing the mode won’t be able to move for a period of time after closing the pause menu. Other issues have been fixed to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.

Nintendo ended its primary support for Super Mario Maker 2 in April. Version 3.0.0 featured World Maker, new course parts, and more. If you missed out on that, you can find those patch notes here.

Hello my lovely listeners-as-a-service! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re bringing up the topic that Galen dubs, “evolving games”. These are games like Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Maker 2 that are back-loaded with post-launch content. Is this new release and marketing strategy to keep a game topical good or bad? Why is it done? Is this a model that can sustain itself for years to come? We also have more Final Fantasy VII Remake impressions now that Oni Dino has beaten the game, and we go hypothetical in our listener mail segment with dream studios working on dream IPs.
