Nintendo has shared that Super Mario Maker has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide, seeing the Super Mario franchise as a whole achieve over 310 million sales.

More than 2.2 million courses have been created in the Wii U exclusive, which have collectively been played nearly 75 million times in the three weeks since launch.

“For Mario fans around the world, including myself, Super Mario Maker was a dream 30 years in the making,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. “The game has captured and unlocked the imaginations of gaming fans of all ages and brought their dedication to Nintendo to a whole new level.”

We were full of praise about the level creator in our Super Mario Maker review, which allows players to use the Wii U GamePad to design their own courses in Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U game styles.

Super Mario Maker is now available exclusively on Wii U worldwide.
