With the highly anticipated release of Super Mario Maker just around the corner now, more and more interesting bits of information about the game are popping up. As if those sweet easter eggs spotted in the title screen and the impressive looking level creations we have seen thus far weren’t cool enough as it is, we can’t seem to take our eyes off these mesmerizing auto-Mario levels.

After the amiibo support, that awesome Mario Maker Wii U bundle and these roller coaster-like Mario courses, the game really can’t come soon enough. The chromatic music note blocks avialable to players in Mario Maker will surely be making some pretty amazing appearances in auto levels over the coming months as well.
