Super Mario Maker Sells Over One Million Copies Worldwide

A treasure chest of tools to build and play 2D Mario levels, Super Mario Maker was the surprise hit of the summer. Today, it was announced that more than 1 million units of Super Mario Maker have been sold around the world since its launch on Sept. 1. The addition of 1 million new “fan” developers has led to the creation of more than 2.2 million Super Mario courses, which combined have been played nearly 75 million times.

“For Mario fans around the world, including myself, Super Mario Maker was a dream 30 years in the making,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The game has captured and unlocked the imaginations of gaming fans of all ages and brought their dedication to Nintendo to a whole new level.”

Now only if we can figure out a way to cut out the 1.1 million terrible courses out there.
