Super Mario Maker 2 "Dry Bones Shellscape" Ninjii Speedrun course available

Can you make the leaderboards?

Nintendo has released the latest Ninji Speedrun course for Super Mario Maker 2. In Dry Bones Shellscape, you'll ride in a Dry Bones Shell to stomp on normally 'unstompable' enemies. You'll also have to crouch and transform into a pile of bones to scoot by other baddies.

Super Mario Maker 2 used to create another marriage proposal

Hopefully Mario makes the guest list

Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker 2 have been used to create all kinds of tributes and announcements for special occasions. That includes marriage proposals, and today we get to see another one of those in action.

In the clip above, you can see yet another stage created in order to pop the question. While watching the unknowing fiance play through takes a bit of patience, the payoff for the big moment is more than worth it!

Super Mario Maker being removed from Wii U eShop, course uploading set to be discontinued

*sad mama-mia noises*

4.02 million people own the original Super Mario Maker for Wii U, but how many actually still play it? With the sequel having been released for Switch last year, Nintendo has decided to pull the plug on it's predecessor.

First, the game will be removed from the Wii U eShop on January 13th, 2021. It will still be downloadable for those who have purchased it, but future sales will be prohibited. Then, on March 31st, 2021, the same day that Super Mario 35 and Super Mario 3D All-Stars are being yanked from the Switch eShop, Nintendo will terminate the ability to upload courses to Super Mario Marker. It's been a good 5 years, but it's time to say, as Mario himself would put it, "bye-bye."

Discontinuation of certain services

From March 31st 2021, it will no longer be possible to upload courses in Super Mario Maker for Wii U. On the same day, the Super Mario Maker Bookmark website will also close.

It will still be possible to play courses uploaded before the service discontinuation.

In preparation for the discontinuation of these online services, Super Mario Maker for Wii U will be removed from sale on Nintendo eShop on January 13th 2021. It will still be possible to redownload the game after this date.

There is no impact on Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch.

We would like to thank all players for supporting Super Mario Maker for Wii U over the past five years.

Planned service end date: March 31st 2021

Please note that depending on the circumstances, these services may be discontinued earlier than the above-mentioned date.

Services that will end
- The ability to upload courses in Super Mario Maker for Wii U
- The Super Mario Maker Bookmark website
Due to this, the following features within the software’s Course World will also become unavailable:
- Updating the ranking of liked courses
- Looking up your bookmarked courses

An error message will be displayed when trying to access these discontinued services after their end date.
