Even though Nintendo's Super Mario Maker has only been out for a scant few weeks – the game creation video game was launched on September 10 in Japan and a day later in North America – it's already made history, selling over 1 million copies for the Japanese video game company.
The popularity of the Wii U game isn't exactly astounding, given that it's part of Nintendo's oldest and most popular flagship line. Paired with more-than-favorable reviews (see the video below), and familiar figures like goombas and koopa troopas, Super Mario Maker is pretty much a blueprint for success.
According to Nintendo, gamers – or "fan developers," as they're called by the company – have created over double the number of levels that the game has sold: around 2.2 million.
