Super Mario Maker (JP) is a level creator for the Wii U. Players are able to create and play their own custom levels, based on Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U and share them online. Over time, new editing tools are unlocked, allowing players to download and play courses designed by other players.

Super Mario Maker received critical acclaim upon its release, with reviewers praising the game's user interface and course editing tools. In May 2016, Nintendo announced that over 7.2 million courses had been created worldwide, which had been played over 600 million times. A port for the Nintendo 3DS was released in December 2016, and a sequel was released in June 2019.
