It was in the back of all our minds from the very start, what would happen to all the Mario Maker Courses for the Wii U once it was time to move on? Well Nintendo has brought the sad news finally for the five year old game.
Nintendo has announced that Super Mario Maker for Wii U is ending the game’s online course share function on March 31, 2021. Meaning after that date you can no longer pull down any courses from the online service. Service for website Super Mario Maker Bookmark will also end that same day. The site was launched to help players search for courses and their creators. Because of this, Nintendo says it won’t be possible to look up bookmarked courses in the Wii U version’s Course World. Moreover, the ranking of the liked courses will no longer be updated.
Players can still play Super Mario Maker for Wii U, but the game will be removed from sale on Nintendo eShop on January 13th 2021. After that you will have to play the game and remake the courses on the Switch version.
