Super Mario 3-DIY is a game in the Super Mario series, designed to be similar to Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World. It is developed by JP, Inc. and Nintendo, and is the second DIY game after WarioWare DIY. It was released April 13th, 2014 for the Wii U and 3DS.

Gameplay

1-Player/Multiplayer/Wi-Fi Adventure Mode

Overall gameplay in adventure mode is similar to Super Mario 3D World (Wii U) and Super Mario 3D Land (3DS). The Wii U version's multiplayer mode, unlike SM3DW, has a split-screen, allowing players to split up on their travels.

The Wii U version can also connect to "public" games made by other players across the world and play them.

In multiplayer adventure, the GamePad is completely useless. However, in 1-Player adventure, players can use a Wii Remote or the GamePad.

You can play games that you built or preset games, and can also download games made by other players online.

An automatic update later added the internet connection to the 3DS version and the DLC store to both versions.

Build Mode

Build Mode uses the 3DS touchscreen/the Wii U GamePad. At the bottom of the screen are a list of items, objects, characters, etc. to add to levels. The game can save up to 10 games (Wii U) or 5 games (3DS). Each game also has a couple of unique items, and the Wii U can also support up to eight playable characters in each game, whereas the 3DS version can only have one. There is a max of 12 worlds. In the Wii U version, the worlds can have unlimited levels, whereas the 3DS version has a max of 15 levels. There is, however, a max of one special level (i.e. fortress, castle, airship, etc.) and two enemy courses/blockades. Certain items must be unlocked, however.

Main ArticleSuper Mario 3-DIY/DLC

Super Mario 3-DIY was confirmed to have DLC on May 1st during the JP XTRA. On May 6th, an automatic update added the DLC Store as a mode, which contained the first three packs for preorder.

Reception

The game had generally mixed reviews. IGN gave it a 6.5/10 stars, saying that it brings in all of the addicting aspects of the Mario series while allowing you to make your own; however, they also added that the Build Mode is glitchy, with blocks sometimes being placed in the wrong area, and that the 3DS version is utterly useless "unless you really like Nokis". GameInformer also did a review, being less generous with a 5/10 stars, explaining that it's the "same-old same-old" with the Mario games, despite the DIY mode (which they added was very glitchy). However, they praised the options of characters and objects, allowing you to truly make your own game.
