If you’re still uploading levels to the original Super Mario Maker, be prepared to upload your final levels to the game’s servers. Last week, Nintendo of America announced that it would no longer be possible to upload levels to the Wii U version of Super Mario Maker, starting March 3, 2021. Additionally, Nintendo will be removing Super Mario Maker from the Eshop on the same date.
Beginning on 3/31, it will no longer be possible to upload courses in #SuperMarioMaker for #WiiU. Please see the link below for more information. Thank you to all the players for supporting the Wii U version of the Super Mario Maker game since 2015!https://t.co/aPtUh8QVd6 pic.twitter.com/bZahjD3yK7

“As of March 31, 2021, it will no longer be possible to upload courses in the Super Mario Maker game for the Wii U system,” read a message on the Nintendo support website. “On the same day, the Super Mario Maker bookmark website will also close. As a result, Super Mario Maker for the Wii U system will be removed from Nintendo eShop on January 12, 2021. Please note that depending on the circumstances, these services may be discontinued earlier than the above-mentioned date.”
None of these changes will affect Super Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch. As of this writing, Nintendo has not revealed if any of these changes will apply to the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Mario Maker.
Super Mario Maker was first released on the Nintendo Wii U on September 10, 2015, with the 3DS version arriving in North America and Europe on December 2, 2016.
