About a month and a half till release so, I guess it is good time as any to get this going ^^
I am quite exited about this, even if there has been some fan projects that have done something similar, but still. I bet that the centralized database and ease of use are quite big reasons to buy this, not to mention that art book that comes with it for behind the scenes stuff for original game as well as tips for new level designers.
I really hope that their isn't gonna be a lot of Kaizo and pornographic levels in the community. I know that theirs gonna be some but I just hope their isn't gonna be so much of it.
I doubt their would be pornographic levels. I think we will see some Kaizo levels but before you upload it you have to actually complete the level so that might cut down on the number of those levels.
You can also search levels by difficulty which are place in categories based on the number of people that completed the level.
I dunno. Smash had some naughty looking stages and I believe the LBP might of had a few as well. I wouldn't be surprised if SMM has some immature looking stages. Though if their, hopefully Nintendo will take em down.
I didn't know about the "complete if you want to publish" rule they had. I'm guessing they probably did that cause they knew some people would make unwinnable or near-impossible levels.

On the other hand, it will discourage the uploading of genuinely challenging levels.
I don't see why? If you design it and you are really good Mario player, I think you can get the level to the service.
Nintendo announced the editions which you can buy the game in. In addition of that allready mentioned book and software bundle, there also will be one with an exclusive amiibo (who would've thought of that) and one a bundle with the console itself.

The amiibo isn't exclusive.
Nintendo is partnering with the most logical company possible to promote Super Mario Maker.
Edit: Okay, it was Facebook, and the Tweets and Facebook news are now down.

There will be behind the scenes stuff as well.
Coming Soon trailer
Wow, those comments.
It's Youtube what do you expect?
People always get all weird when Nintendo puts up adverts.
Thank God that they're making a console bundle with the game. I NEED A WII U NOW.
Even though this game is a very nice way to celebrate the 30th anniversary, I wanted something bigger than that. No, not the Let's Super Mario ploy. That is shit. (But nifty in a way though, but I think its still shit) I wanted Galaxy 3, GODDAMNIT.
Edit: I accidentally touched Send on my phone before i was done typing. And I accidentally clicked on a fucking ad when I tried to finish editing it. Fucking phone.

It was announced on the Japanese site that there will be 99 Amiibos compatible with the game. You don't need Amiibos because you can unlock them in game.
It is compatible with Gamepad, Pro Controller, Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro, and Wii Remote.
Also each NNID can save 120 stages.
Oh, that's... extensive.
Playing Mario stages with an 8 bit Greninja is going to be a lot of fun to me.
I just wish that the amiibos did more than make a cosmetic difference. I'd love to see Kirby running through Mario levels, eating every Goomba that crosses his path, eating a Koopa Troopa and becoming Koopa Kirby, hell, eating Bowser and then using his B move
I'm actually really curious what the other Mario amiibos will do. Will we be able to play with a Bowser suit, or maybe as the Koopa King himself? Will Luigi give us them slippery shoes? Will Peach simply just put Mario in a dress, still mustachioed and all? Tune in next week where all will be revealed, same Bat-Time, same Bat-Channel!
Giving every amiibo a special ability just seems like too much work for me, especially when there's so many of them.
Plus it would kinda go against the whole premise of testing your skill at both creating and playing the Mario stage if you can use characters that don't even play like Mario like your Kirby idea.
I do wonder if anything different happens if non-Mario characters get a Fire Flower. I guess maybe their Smash red palettes will show up for those who have them?
I would pay for DLC for getting the costumes in the other styles. Ah well. At least I'll finally have my Charizard platforming game. And this will probably be Sonic's best 2D platformer in years.
Finally we can have Super Lucario Bros!
Or Super Wario Bros. if there's a Waluigi amiibo as well.
I wonder if they'll have all the 8-bit incarnations of the characters as seen in Mario Party 8. That'd be a missed opportunity.
Mario! Wario! ...Lucario!
It's interesting that we now have a non-Smash game where the three of them appear together.

How well does it match the trope?
