It's Super Mario Maker day, and it's no doubt going to pop up in a lot of articles; actually, we make no apology for that. It's earned a rare 10 in our review, and is a reminder of many of the qualities that have made Mario an iconic part of Nintendo and gaming history. It's a big deal.
A vital part of the experience is not only creating levels, but also sharing them. While the in-game sharing is robust, we've setup a community-focused page here on Nintendo Life where we can all share more naturally together. This page is below:
We are running a competition in the UK related to the EGX expo, but this page is nevertheless for EVERYONE, with only specifically tagged entries being part of that contest. Be in no doubt, this tool is for the whole community around the world.
As you can see on the page, searches can be broken down into six categories, and when you share a level you input its code, name and a brief description. To try levels all you need to do is search for it in the game - the level ID is the most fool-proof option - play it and then share a rating, comment and 'Like' as you see fit. This is a great chance to share in the experience, talk about level design and be helpful to each other with tips and feedback.
Better yet, we're in the process of liaising with some developers to ask them to contribute, and will be running regular video and feature articles highlighting our staff favourites, listing those the community are enjoying the most and more.
So, get cracking! We'll be picking some favourites next week for our first related video and features, and we can't wait to see what you all come up with.
