Mario Maker for Nintendo Wii U

Jun 13, 2014

Category: Tech

You would think Nintendo had milked Mario and his mustachioed brother bone-dry by now, but no, there’s at least one more innovation in store for this legendary franchise: DIY.

Announced this week at the big E3 hullabaloo, Mario Maker will let players create their own levels in Super Mario Brothers with the Wii U stylus; just drag and drop your preferred assortment of pipes, coin boxes, tiles, Goombas and such onto the screen and off you go with your overalls. You can even toggle between the classic 8-bit graphics and the shiny new HD version of 2012′s New Super Mario Bros. Mario Maker will of course be a Nintendo exclusive and while we won’t be able to get our hands on this highly anticipated title this holiday season, fans can expect it to hit retail shelves during the first half of 2015.
