Nintendo has announced an Internet service shutdown for the original Wii U Super Mario Maker, meaning players will no longer be able to set their own courses.
The suspension shall take effect on March 31, 2021; from that date, “courses will no longer be available” and on the same day, the Super Mario Maker bookmarking website will also close. Nintendo says “it will still be possible to play courses taken before the service is discontinued.”
That’s not all, because the termination of these services also means that the game will be removed from the sale of the Nintendo eShop. From January 13, 2021, you will no longer be able to purchase a digital copy of the game from the Wii U online store – however, you will be able to download the title again if you already have one.
In case you were worried, Super Mario Maker 2 on Switch will appear no to be influenced.
Services to be completed (Super Mario Maker – Wii U)
- Ability to set courses in Super Mario Maker for Wii U.
- Bookmark book site Super Mario Maker
Because of this, the following features within the Software World course will also become unavailable:
- Update the ranking of courses you like
- Looking at the marked courses
Are you sad when you see Super Mario Maker doing? This digital age is daunting, especially when large editions of Mario are being destroyed in stores.
