Mario Maker, a Super Mario Bros. Level Editor for Wii U - Nintendo E3 2014


     The trailer for the newly announced Mario Maker, for the Wii U. What hackers have been doing for a decade or more, you can now make Mario romhacks straight from your Nintendo console! Mario Maker also gives you the option to play with New Super Mario Bros. themed graphics. I would've enjoyed the option to play with Super Mario World's tilesets, however. Mario Maker takes inspiration from Mario Paint with a lot of the hud as well, which is pretty interesting. There are also some strange and unexplained elements such as a lanky mushroom that scales Mario's normal tiny sprite to the height of Super Mario. No word on online interaction or level sharing yet, however the game would feel a lot smaller without such things.
