Nintendo hit Super Mario Maker is to benefit from a link up with Mercedes-Benz, as the create-your-own experience for Wii U receives a custom level and a GLA-class costume for Mario. 

The freebie is an extension of a deal that saw Mario Kart 8 players receive three complimentary karts styled after the Mercedes-Benz GLA, 300 SL Roadster and classic Silver Arrow. 

Now, an Event Course created by Mercedes-Benz is being made available as a free download for Super Mario Maker, with a GLA-style makeover for Mario given to those that successfully complete the level. 

Wii U game Super Mario Maker was released the week of Sept 10 worldwide, during the 30th anniversary year for Super Mario games, receiving a swathe of high scoring reviews in the process, and selling nearly 2 million copies by the end of the month. 

Mercedes-Benz' compact crossover GLA-Class was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013, with delivery to dealerships commencing in 2014. 

Mercedes-Benz also produced a 55 second Super Mario Maker video to mark the occasion. — AFP Relaxnews
