Players Say Super Mario Maker Is Deleting Stages Without An Explanation

Super Mario Maker fans are complaining that their creations are being removed from the game without a reason or explanation.

This has happened before but fans knew that it was for the stages that had glitches. Now, there is no explanation as to why their courses are being removed from the game. Some fans believe this is happening because these stages are not played or cleared by gamers. There are also a number of courses that have been banned, even when players try to make them again. The company has not made any comments on the stages.

Three months ago, the game had 3.3 million stages, turning this title into one of the biggest hits for the Wii U in 2015. The game is also receiving new content almost every month, so the stage uploads won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Gameranx believes they may have automated the process since there are thousands of levels uploaded everyday.

Wii UIf that is true, the company should explain to the fans that they have changed the process. If not, they should still tell them about the stages and why they are being removed from the game. A few months ago, gamers were told that the stages with glitches would be removed.

The company did mention during the release that the stages could be removed for a number of reasons, including low popularity. No one knows if this is the reason, but the decision has gamers guessing. Some think it is the title, others believe the most difficult levels that are not being completed are part of this, others think the company wants to make you create levels that people want to play.

One Million Copies Sold In The U.S.

The company is currently facing criticism for removing the stages, but the game is still climbing the Wii U sales list. It was recently revealed that the title has now sold one million copies in the United States. This makes it the sixth Wii U game to reach that milestone. The title had a strong November and December, increasing sales for the console. The other million selling games for the console are: Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros, Super Mario 3D World, New Super Mario Bros. U and Splatoon.

As many of us know by now, Super Mario Maker lets you create your own levels and share them with gamers around the world. The release has been a success as fans have created millions of stages, all with different obstacles and themes.

  1. “Super Mario Maker fans are complaining that their creations are being removed from the game” please stop saying “the game” the correct way of saying this is: “removed from the server”. The levels cannot be erased from the game nor are they being erased from the users console or memory as they may interpret this. Nintendo have to automate removal of courses that are broken or unpopular, it is clearly stated to the player that this can happen and it is recommended to keep your levels saved on the console just in case. It would be good if players recieved a notification and even better if they had a time period to dowload it before deletion.
