For the first time, you can collaborate on courses in the Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS game by sharing your work with other players. If you know someone who also has the game, you can get started on the ultimate Super Mario course!




Step #1: Building basics

First time creating a Mario course? You can turn to the tutorial mode to learn the ins and outs of the game. A talking pigeon named Yamamura and his assistant Mary O. offer helpful tips to new players about course creation, items, and more. Plus, you can watch the tutorials with a friend so you can both learn how to make courses! 



Step #2: Creating with friends

Thanks to the local wireless feature on your Nintendo 3DS system, you can share a course with another player who also has the game and a system (game and system sold separately). The other player can edit the course, then send it back to you to edit some more. Your finished course will be tagged with a special icon commemorating the collaboration.

If your friend doesn’t have their own system, you can simply hand your system to your friend, let them add something to the course, then try to beat it!



Step #3: Sharing with StreetPass 

Any course you create can be shared with other players via the StreetPass feature on your Nintendo 3DS family system. But you have to first prove your course is actually beatable—which means you’ll have to finish your own course before you can set it as your StreetPass course.



Step #4: Special gifts

If you receive a course via StreetPass, a gift box will appear in a special section of Course World. Tap the gift to open the course, then you can play it. You can either delete the course or save it locally to keep and edit (but you can’t share the course after you edit it). There’s enough room to store up to 120 courses!



Step #5: Bragging rights

Your profile page lists off all of your in-game accomplishments, like the number of medals you’ve received, how many times you’ve cleared the 100 Mario Challenge, how many lives you’ve lost, and the difficulty levels you’ve overcome—you know, the kinds of things you can totally brag about on the playground.
