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.

Rare, Sealed ‘Super Mario Bros. 3’ Variant Breaks Record For World’s Most Expensive Video Game

Mama mia!

A very special sealed copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 just raked in quite a sum of money during an auction. This led to the game bringing in $156k when the gavel dropped, making for a new record. You can get full details on the auction and what makes this game so special in the press release below.

For the second time in 2020, the Super Mario Bros. have set a world’s record for the highest price paid for a video game at auction.

Friday morning, Heritage Auctions sold a sealed copy of 1990’s Super Mario Bros. 3 for $156,000, shattering the previous record set in July when its 1985 predecessor Super Mario Bros. sold for $114,000.

The lot opened bidding at $62,500 – already an impressive sum for the game graded Wata 9.2 A+. But 20 bidders got in the game, sending the final price soaring toward the world record during what would become the world’s first-ever million-dollar video-game auction.

“We couldn't be more pleased about breaking the world record for the second time in the same year,” says Valarie McLeckie, Heritage Auctions’ Director of Video Games. “That said, it's no surprise that another Mario game, which so many of us grew up with, would set the new bar.”

While the condition of the game is remarkable, what makes this copy even more singular is the layout of the packaging itself: Exceedingly rare are sealed copies with the word “Bros.” formatted to the left, covering one of Mario’s signature white gloves. Collectors have spent years looking for such a version – the earliest in the Super Mario Bros. 3 production history – and usually come up empty-handed.

Until Friday.

The Dallas-based auction house did sell one sealed Wata 9.0 A copy of this variant in July – for the all-in price of $38,400. What a difference a slightly better grade, and four months, can make.

Super Mario Bros. 3 wasn’t the only record-setter in Friday’s video-game auction, the largest such sale ever held.
