    I don't think this is predictable for anyone (that isn't working for Nintendo :P), but you should be able to play for a few years, at the very least. The only problem is that as time goes by, SMM's community will be less active, which means a few levels created, and so on... However this souldn't be happening anytime soon; they are still levels being created, and active players to play your freshly-made levels and rate them :)
    On a side note, I started playing a week ago and it is still fun to play and create levels, so I think you should go on and buy it. :)

    1 year? How do you know that? I thought the servers were going to stay online for a much longer time :/

    Edit: Just found this thread on Reddit, which is one year old but should give you information about the time Ninty will shut down SMM's servers. I think that we still have time, as Wii game's servers were shut down on 2014, so we still have a few years (at least) to enjoy playing and sharing your levels.

    In my opinion, you should buy it.

    I just bought it. There are still plenty of levels to play. It's still worth it for the content you pay for and you still can play offline and create your own levels.

    I wasn't on the hype train when the game just got released but maybe people just got lazy to rate the new created levels now.

    To be fair, the Wii servers were shut down because the company that managed the servers went out of business, so for SMM we'll have more than a few years
