Super Mario Maker is a creation tool video game which allows players to create their own levels from the Super Mario series using the Wii U GamePad, which they can then share with other players. Players can base their levels on the gameplay and visual style of games including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros. U, with players able to change the visual style to different games.
The game was first announced at E3 2014 under the name Mario Maker. The game was conceived as a tool by Nintendo's internal development team, to be used within the company; the game was demonstrated under the new name, on June 14, 2015, during the final round of the Nintendo World Championships 2015 event preceding E3.
