Though they did not announce a price, the video says that it will be available Sept. 30.

In true Nintendo fashion, the company let loose a wealth of information Aug. 24, involving release dates, combo packs and a Super Mario Maker Wii U Bundle.



Gamespot has the details:

According to Nintendo, Star Fox Zero will launch in North America and Europe on November 20. Xenoblade Chronicles X, meanwhile, will be available in both territories on December 4.

Although Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is listed as "Holiday 2015" for North America, Nintendo has confirmed the more specific November 20 date for Europe.

A new combo pack bringing together New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U will go on sale on October 16 in North America for a recommended retail price of $59.99.

Walmart will be the exclusive retailer for the Super Mario Maker Wii U bundle, which includes the game, an Idea Book, and the 30th Anniversary Mario Modern Colour Amiibo. It will be available on September 11 for $299.96.

Facebook with host a Nintendo hackathon for the release of Mario Maker.

Nintendo will team with Facebook for a "hackathon" July 28 that has absolutely no hacking in it.

Essentially, Nintendo wants those supposedly smart people behind Facebook to take a crack at using the creation tools in Super Mario Maker. A press release on explains it further:

The Super Mario Maker hackathon is exclusively for Facebook employees to design a special level in the game. At the event, participants will be using the demo version of the game that drew rave reviews at the recent E3 video game trade show to create levels using the in-game tools that will become available to a wider audience when the game launches exclusively for Wii U on the 11th of September. The event will culminate with designers presenting their creations to a panel of judges from Nintendo and Facebook. The winning individual or team has the opportunity to make the level available for Super Mario Maker owners to play after the game's launch.



One of the big things that Nintendo hopes to offer with Super Mario Maker is a robust community of new player-created levels after the game's release. So, this partnership can be seen as a chance to kickstart the levels available at launch.

That all depends on how much you want your Mario levels designed by the employees of Facebook. Surely both will roll out a large nostalgic PR campaign once the competition closes.

Nintendo hasn't denied it, but Super Mario Maker probably won't come with a computer mouse or a fly swatter game.
