Easy and simple enough for an 80's generationer to pick up and start playing and creating games. Lot's of fun, we love the "delivery trucks" when they show up, which is often. Great game for the budding gamer or future game developer!

Customer reviews & ratings
Excellent game for my 11 year-old daughter :)
Mario maker is awesome
You like Mario, you want to make Mario levels, but you need a Wii U to do it. Don't worry, if you buy this you get the Wii U and the Mario Maker game, all in one bundle. It is so much fun. It's easy, my 5 year old loves to make Mario levels. I enjoy making them as well. And when you're done, hey, you have a Wii U, and there are other games you can buy and play, WOOT WOOT. You can even go online and buy old Nintendo games for $5 each. That's right, they have the gold cartridge Zelda, for $5 (minus the gold cartridge of course). Time to slay some crabs and get some gems. I was a productive member of society, now I'm a Wii U playing machine.....
I bought this for my 8 & 10 year old boys. I like the creativity of making your own levels and the feeling of accomplishment it give them when they finish. They play on this more then the XBox one.
The Mario Maker game is for my Grandson when he is here after school, he is having a wonderful time building Mario games and giggling all the while. ( he is 6)
Excellent game + amazing console
I have been wanting to get a wii U for a while and I finally got it. This bundle is amazing. I was going to preorder super Mario maker separately but found this and was starstruck. The bundle comes with the 32gb console plus the game and a Mario 30th anniversary amiibo. Planning on buying super Mario bros U soon also. I've played Mario games since I was 5 and this is soo cool you can make your own Mario courses with super Mario maker. The console itself is amazing. I recommend you buy this. Very cool bundle.
My wife and I love it!
I bought this for my wife since she loved playing when she was little but so did I. I have an Xbox one and loved every min of it. When we plugged it in my childhood came back to me and made me realize that it wasn't about getting trophies every time you finish a level....it's about enjoying the game as it is. The Mario edition IF you can find it is the best way to start with a WiI U. I was waiting for the right time to get it and boy was glad! Oh by the way the toy that comes with it....it's worth $54 on eBay no big deal lol. Enjoy!
Kids love it!
We bought this to replace our old wii system and were a little worried it would be complicated. But so far so good...easy to use...kids really love mario maker game...and touchscreen gamepad makes game playing easy for my 6 yr old. It is easy to charge & we can play all old wii games on it just fine. So...overall expensive but worth it! I do recommend getting case & screenprotector if have kids like mine!
This is the gift they really want
Used site to store to purchase for my 11 year old as a Christmas gift. Picked it up same day with zero hassle. Installing the console isn't difficult, the included instructions are clear. It takes a few minutes to update this console to the latest firmware version after getting it onto my wireless network (recommend you have a good wireless router for this) so if you have impatient kids you might think to open the box and do all of this ahead of time if gifting. There is no game disc, the game must be downloaded from the internet, which is easy enough but, again, have a good wireless router. The included game is terrific. I loved Mario when I was young and it's fun to watch my son enjoying it too. He is a creative boy and the level design mode of this game keeps him focused for long periods. I think this game is constructive and helps kids think creatively. There are other games available for the Wii U which cost $60 each which my son wants to get later. Splatoon and Mario Kart are the two he wants most. For the price, there are few gifts that will provide as many hours of pure entertainment as this, I am pleased with this purchase.
Fun for the whole family
I got this for my fiancé for Christmas, as we are both really big gamers (me Xbox One, him PS4). We already had a regular Wii but rarely played it. He's a huge Zelda fan, so with the new Zelda game coming out for the Wii U in 2016, I thought I'd get us the Wii U. I intentionally got this one from GX Deals Online because it came with Super Mario Maker, which we had both been dying to try. Setting up the console itself and downloading the game took a while, but once we did that, getting started playing was very easy. We're really enjoying the game, and the touch pad that allows us to play mobile in other rooms. The amiibo it comes with is cute too and can be used in the game!
it was great
the wii u was great .one reason why is that you can play with it while the TV is off.it also has great connection even if you are far away from the sensor bar or in different room I like making my own level and play it and you can submit up to 10 level online
