Mario Maker 2 levels

Part of the Mario Maker 2 Dataset Collection

Dataset Description

The Mario Maker 2 levels dataset consists of 26.6 million levels from Nintendo's online service totaling around 100GB of data. The dataset was created using the self-hosted Mario Maker 2 api over the course of 1 month in February 2022.

How to use it

The Mario Maker 2 levels dataset is a very large dataset so for most use cases it is recommended to make use of the streaming API of datasets. You can load and iterate through the dataset with the following code:

from datasets import load_dataset

ds = load_dataset("TheGreatRambler/mm2_level", streaming=True, split="train")
print(next(iter(ds)))

Level data is a binary blob describing the actual level and is equivalent to the level format Nintendo uses in-game. It is gzip compressed and needs to be decompressed to be read. To read it you only need to use the provided level.ksy kaitai struct file and install the kaitai struct runtime to parse it into an object:

from datasets import load_dataset
from kaitaistruct import KaitaiStream
from io import BytesIO
from level import Level
import zlib

ds = load_dataset("TheGreatRambler/mm2_level", streaming=True, split="train")
level_data = next(iter(ds))["level_data"]
level = Level(KaitaiStream(BytesIO(zlib.decompress(level_data))))

# NOTE level.overworld.objects is a fixed size (limitation of Kaitai struct)
# must iterate by object_count or null objects will be included
for i in range(level.overworld.object_count):
    obj = level.overworld.objects[i]
    print("X: %d Y: %d ID: %s" % (obj.x, obj.y, obj.id))

#OUTPUT:
X: 1200 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 1360 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 1360 Y: 240 ID: ObjId.block
X: 1520 Y: 240 ID: ObjId.block
X: 1680 Y: 240 ID: ObjId.block
X: 1680 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 1840 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2000 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2160 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2320 Y: 400 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2480 Y: 560 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2480 Y: 720 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2480 Y: 880 ID: ObjId.block
X: 2160 Y: 880 ID: ObjId.block

Rendering the level data into an image can be done using Toost if desired.

You can also download the full dataset. Note that this will download ~100GB:

ds = load_dataset("TheGreatRambler/mm2_level", split="train")

Dataset Creation

The dataset was created over a little more than a month in Febuary 2022 using the self hosted Mario Maker 2 api. As requests made to Nintendo's servers require authentication the process had to be done with upmost care and limiting download speed as to not overload the API and risk a ban. There are no intentions to create an updated release of this dataset.

Considerations for Using the Data

The dataset consists of levels from many different Mario Maker 2 players globally and as such their titles and descriptions could contain harmful language. Harmful depictions could also be present in the level data, should you choose to render it.
