Miyamoto says Mario Maker could become a series

New, 16 comments

Nintendo today showed off Mario Maker's level building tools. Speaking at The Game Awards in Las Vegas tonight, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto said the Wii U game is a celebration of Super Mario Bros. 30th anniversary. "It was not so easy to make Mario levels back in 1985," he said, adding that he hopes the game creation tool becomes "a series of its own."

Mario Maker, set for release in 2015, will allow Wii U owners to create their own Super Mario levels with old-school and modern graphics. The levels shown at the Game Awards featured classic-style platform creation, coin seeding and enemy placements in worlds with art styles from classic Mario games. "The act of creation is fun. I think it will be a perfect fit for the 30th anniversary," added Miyamoto. You can watch the presentation above.
