Super Mario Maker 2 Seems to Have a 32-Course Upload Limit

Super Mario Maker 2 Seems to Have a 32-Course Upload Limit

Maybe aim for quality over quantity, makers.

It's Friday, and there's a new Super Mario Maker for players to start poking and prodding at, designing their most evil machinations. But for some, you might want to consider quality over quantity, as there appears to be a hard limit at the moment as to how many courses one account can upload.

Reports on sites like Reddit are indicating a limit of 32 courses, which is corroborated by our own experience with the game. The course screen even lists an "X/32" on the screen. But while Super Mario Maker (the first) also started with an initial limit on uploads at 10, you could expand it all the way up to 100 by getting stars from other players who enjoyed playing your courses. Essentially, the more popular you were as a course creator, the more stars you got and the more courses you could upload.

It's unclear right now whether a similar system currently is, or will eventually be, implemented in Super Mario Maker 2. We reached out to Nintendo for clarification, but they did not respond by the time of publication.

As for the game itself, Super Mario Maker 2 is so far spectacular. Besides a few bugs that will likely get cleaned up over the coming weeks and having to unlock the night theme, we came away from our time with Super Mario Maker 2 pretty dang impressed. And even with seemingly only 32 courses to upload per person, that's still a lot of courses to keep us playing for a while longer.
