EDGE - - NINTENDO -

Nin­tendo’s plumber has dab­bled in user-gen­er­ated con­tent be­fore with Mario

Paint, but play­ers have never been able to try bet­ter­ing Shigeru Miyamoto’s ef­forts. In­deed, Mario Maker, which al­lows you to build your own Mario lev­els, was con­ceived as a tool for in­ter­nal de­vel­op­ment teams be­fore be­ing pitched as a game in its own right. Cur­rently, you can choose be­tween 8bit NES and New

Su­per Mario Bros styles, plac­ing blocks with the GamePad touch­screen and switch­ing in­stantly be­tween and edi­tor and play modes. Bril­liantly, once you com­plete a stage and switch back to the edi­tor, your path through the course will be rep­re­sented by a stream of translu­cent Mar­ios, al­low­ing you to tune your world-beat­ing (or bro­ken) de­sign. But while the com­pany is mak­ing pos­i­tive noises re­gard­ing shar­ing your cre­ations, noth­ing has been con­firmed as yet.
