Having confirmed that the upcoming level-editing game, Super Mario Maker, will come with a ready-made set of stages to play through, Nintendo have today tweeted – after correcting a slight miscommunication – that they will be teaming up with Facebook in order to further promote the game. Employees of the social networking site are to be given the opportunity to design levels prior to release in the hope that they may potentially be offered up as official content within the game.
Facebook employees will design levels in the game in a competition, w/ one level available to download for free after launch. (2/2)

As the tweet states, the intent is that one of the designed levels will be released to fans for free, however it’s unclear whether or not other creations will be featured alongside, and if so, if these add-on’s will be released as paid downloads in the form of DLC or otherwise additional content. Nintendo have thus far declined to elaborate on this partnership beyond the revised tweet above, but be sure to keep an eye on any further updates as the game’s release gets ever closer. Super Mario Maker will launch for Wii U on September 11th.
