Here’s a bit of odd news (it’s weekend after all): The Super Mario Maker idea book, which ships with every retail version of the game (but you can get it for free even if you buy the game digitally), apparently comes in two different versions. It appears that the slick hardcover version will be released in Europe, while North American gamers will be getting a cheaper soft-cover version. And if you want to save the trees, you can get the game digitally and download the Super Mario Maker book for free. Super Mario Maker launched yesterday on the Wii U. Have you played it yet?

EU has a hard cover one! pic.twitter.com/BNVrnzUv6C — Daan Koopman (@NintenDaan) September 12, 2015 local_offer Nintendo super mario maker wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros.
