Super Mario Maker Reaches New Milestones; Over 3.5 Million Units Sold

Released for Wii U owners last fall, the level creator Super Mario Maker became a quick hit for allowing players to build some wild and crazy levels inspired by the world of Super Mario Bros., and since then Nintendo has shared some new statistics on the game’s success since its debut last September.

In a tweet, Nintendo of America revealed that Super Mario Maker has sold over 3.5 million units worldwide after releasing for the Wii U in September 2015. Along with the sales numbers, Nintendo also revealed that players have created over 7.2 million courses with a total of 600 million plays.

As a bit of a fun fact, Nintendo also shared that if you played 1 minute of each of the courses made through the game so far, you’d be able to get through all of them in a brisk 14 years – hope you don’t plan on playing too many other games in that amount of time, at least…

Super Mario Maker is available now for Wii U.
