Mario Party Legacy

Super Mario Maker Released Worldwide!

When the original Super Mario Bros. was released on Friday, September 13, 1985 in Japan, it became the best seller for the Nintendo Famicom. It was later released on Friday, October 18, 1985* in North America and it also proved to be huge seller there–for the Nintendo Entertainment System–saving the gaming industry from the 1983 video game crash. In its thirty years, sequels were announced, and people imagined how they would like to create their own levels. That dream, after thirty long years, has finally come, on Friday, September 11, 2015. Super Mario Maker, a game where you create your levels, is finally released to the public! Available now at retailers or at the Nintendo eShop for $59.99, it’s time to use your imaginations and use them in levels to impress others. Create, play, and share the levels with your friends. When you buy the game, you will also get the idea book to help you get started in creating levels. The booklet has 96 pages, comprising of many different ideas for you to use. Will you be getting Super Mario Maker to create levels and share with your friends? Let us know in the comments!

People from across the world can also grab the Super Mario Maker Wii U bundle (exclusive to Walmart in North America) for $299.99. If you have not yet gotten a Wii U yet, now is the time! The bundle also includes the 30th Anniversary Mario: Modern Color (Classic Color for PAL regions) amiibo figure. The Classic Color version is also available at retailers, so if you want one, get lined up at your closest retailer, otherwise, they’re all sold out by the time you’re reading this! The Modern Color will be released in Europe on Friday, October 23, 2015, with Australia on the day after.

Along with the amiibo figures, the newest wave of Super Smash Bros. amiibo figures are also released in North America only. The figures will run you $12.99 each. Here are the characters you can get in this wave: Ganondorf (Zelda), Zero Suit Samus (Metroid), Olimar (Pikmin), Dr. Mario (Dr. Mario) (exclusive to Target), and Bowser Jr. (Mario) (exclusive to Toys R Us).

Finally, you can also grab yourself a Bowser Wii Remote Plus and a Toad Wii Remote Plus for $39.99 each, exclusively at GameStop.

The 30th anniversary is sure to bring in lots of content from retailers. So whatever you’re doing, grab Super Mario Maker and the amiibo figures if you’re into gaming, study for your quizzes and exams if you’re in school, work on your business if you’re in work, or pay respects to those that passed away 14 years ago. Enjoy, and have fun creating those levels! Mario Party Legacy wants to see YOUR imaginations run wild and come into fruition!

*This is the suspected date. No one, not even Nintendo, even knows the true release date for Super Mario Bros. for North America. To this day, it remains a mystery.

    I preordered this game, and I’m probably going to pick it up tomorrow afternoon.

    • MagiKooper

      Well, i’m getting the special bundle with the art book and the amiibo, and I didn’t even have to preorder it.

      GOSH! It’s nice to live Europe. 😀

        *cries self to sleep*

      • Luigiguy567

        Well I have the pride to pick up a normal copy without spending money on a booklet that I don’t need and that amiibo I’ll probably never use.

        America! F**k yeah!

    I remember not being hyped for this game at first, and then, 2 weeks ago, I started to be more interested, and now I’m gonna buy it after school today. Coincidentally, same thing happened with Splatoon, and it’s now one of my favorite game of all time 😀

  • CuriousUser

    I’ve decided to pick up the game after all, I’ll be resting Smash 4 for some time for this game (still haven’t started MP10 yet) and will start M&S at the Rio 2016 when I get it for Xmas at the end of the year.

    Anyway, neat game, celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros., not quite the adventure I expected, but good all in all, neat seeing sprites of how enemies might’ve appeared in 8bit/16bit/512bit form. Turns out those leaked images posted these past 2 months were indeed fake, and that the E3 Demo was indeed the Final Version, despite being about 3 months before the game’s release, since nothing not from the E3 Demo is in the Final Game. Makes me think Mecha-Koopas, Urchins, Fire Chomps, Spikes and such never were so popular Mario Enemies after all (leaving the Only Airship based Enemies to be Rocky Wrenches), but I do think there’ll be an update with more objects in the future. It was a nice addition having to play as Many Different other characters (even Non-Mario ones) through a Mystery Mushroom. And what kind of Anniversary Game doesn’t have a Gallery of Trivia.

    Overall, I’m sure it’ll be nice to play, release around the same time SMB was first released in 1985. I remember there being Flash games online and a NSMBWii Level Editor (but none for NSMBU) that were somewhat like this. Hope you enjoy the levels I create that I’ll share with my Miiverse Friends, it may not be easy, but I’ll try my best.

      I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but Mario & Sonic 2016 isn’t coming out until 2016.

  • Uhh, why does nobody know when SMB was released?
