Nintendo Chooses a Winner for Super Mario Maker Hackathon

Some of these levels are just mean!

In July, Nintendo brought Super Mario Maker to Facebook’s headquarters for the Super Mario Maker Hackathon event. Facebook employees were given two days to create the best Super Mario Maker level they could, and the winner would be included into the final game.

In their latest Nintendo Minute video, the process of creating levels in Super Mario Maker is briefly shown. Facebook employees took to sketching levels on paper and writing notes on how to create a perfect Mario level. Several created levels are highlighted in the video, some of which show off how deviously difficult Super Mario Maker can be. In the end, the level “Ship Love” was chosen and will be included with the game when it releases Sept. 11, 2015.
