Super Mario Maker 2's worldwide community has been on a creative roll with the game. Over 2 million courses have been created for play.

Super Mario Maker 2 has a fervent community. Nintendo has supplied a beauty of a tool box and players around the world are happily using it to their heart’s content to create a number of awesome levels and courses for the game. What kind of number you may ask? Well, it turns out the Mario Maker community has created over 2 million playable levels for the game.

The stellar milestone was announced by official Nintendo social channels on July 9, 2019. Specifically, it stated that upwards of 2 million levels have been uploaded into the system. This number doesn’t take into account any sort of levels that have been removed for any reason from the system. Even so, it’s a stunning number given that Super Mario Maker 2 launched worldwide on June 28, 2019 and has only had a handful of days to get to that number at the time of this writing.

To put it into full perspective, if the number of courses on Super Mario Maker 2 was at exactly the 2 million marker and you played just one course a day, 365 days a year, every year, it would still take 5,479.45 years to complete them all. That isn’t to say that every Mario Maker level is a zinger either, but there have been some super impressive ideas to make it into the creative space, including dastardly creations by notable content creators Ross “Rubberninja” O'Donovan and Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil. There are also novel and uniquely gimmicked levels out there like this pinball one from creator Smeed. From the big creators to the smaller ones, there is plenty being done with what Super Mario Maker 2 has given us.

With such a grand array of design choices, Super Mario Maker 2 is likely to experience a long life - likely even longer than that of its predecessor, which produced this nearly impossible level that was attempted over 5.3 million times even as of June 2019.
