Super Mario Maker is a Mario game for the Wii U that allows players to create their own levels in the style of various Mario games and share them with other players online. It was released worldwide in September 2015, around the time of Mario's 30th anniversary.

Playing as Sonic

Super Mario Maker features many unlockable character costumes, called Costume Mario, as Mario takes the form of these characters, that can be used in the original Super Mario Bros. game style, including Sonic. These are either unlocked at random by clearing the 100-Mario Challenge or by using the character's amiibo. In Sonic's case, the player must beat the 100-Mario Challenge on Expert or harder, or use the Sonic amiibo. While the costumes don't give Mario any different abilities, they do have different sound effects. For example, Sonic has his jumping sound effect, and the game over music and Act Clear music from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 are used.

Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS released without any of the Costume Mario functionality, meaning the Sonic costume could not be accessed in the 3DS version.
