Guys. You can build Mario levels. Srsly.
At a digital E3 event, Nintendo announced it would have its own take on Little Big Planet-esque game play with the release of a creation station for the company’s most iconic plumber. Building courses on the Wii U appears to be as simple as drag and drop with the stylus and gamepad. Bricks, pipes and Goombas are all displayed in beautiful 8-bit or Wii U 3D New Super Mario design as you use a Mario Paint-like mechanic to drop everything in place.
“It has to be something that is uniquely Nintendo. Where a beginner can easily make something and have a good time, and simultaneously, someone who is really into Mario can delve into it deeper and make something more complex,” said Masataka Takemoto, Nintendo game director. “So that is a challenge we will need to tackle in the future.”
As if Mario didn’t have infinite replayability already…
