Publisher/developer Nintendo Format Wii U Release 2015
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.
