Combine different elements to create your own unique courses.


Stages are created with the Wii U GamePad. At the top of the screen, you have access to a wide variety of elements, ranging from the most basic of blocks to some of Mario's more unique foes. Try placing one that catches your eye... (We can wait...) And you've just taken your first step into an almost limitless world of creation! You can move Mario himself with the stylus or .

Touch the flashing areas!

◆ Some features will only be displayed once you have progressed further in the game.


At the touch of a button, the course you were editing becomes fully playable! And if something bothers you while playing, you can instantly switch back to creation mode to adjust it. You'll be the first-ever player of the unique courses you create!

Save & Upload

Once you've created a course, save it! And having gone to all that effort, of course you'll want to upload it so that others can enjoy it too. The courses you've saved can be accessed via Coursebot on the main menu.

◆ Saved courses can be edited once loaded.

Using amiibo

You can use amiibo during the course-creation process to add even more variety to your courses!
Touch the amiibo to your Wii U GamePad controller to receive some special course elements.

  • Mario (Super Mario Bros. 30th Anniversary Series)
    This lets you insert a Big Mushroom power-up into your course. If a player collects this while playing, Mario will transform into Big Mario! (Not quite Super Mario, not quite Mega Mario—just the right size for busting through blocks and stomping some Goombas flat!)
    Other amiibo
    A costume based on the amiibo will be added to the Mystery Mushroom roster. If a player collects a Mystery Mushroom while playing, they'll transform into a costume chosen randomly from a variety, or the costume you set during course creation. If you press while transformed, Costume Mario will react differently depending on the costume.
