Mario Maker (working title) confirmed for release in 2015
Create Your Own Custom Mario Courses!
The rumor we reported on five days ago has been confirmed! Even better, you’ll be able to swap between classic 8-bit style Mario graphics, and the more recent New Super Mario type visuals.
The title will release sometime in 2015, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Build and Rebuild the Mushroom Kingdom
For the first time ever, anyone can create 2D Mario levels using
Wii U GamePad controller.
• Making courses is easy. Players use the GamePad touch screen to easily
drag and drop elements they want in their levels. Place blocks, pipes, lifts
and enemies anywhere and play through the level. Want a Goomba to
wear a Piranha Plant on its head, build a tower 10 Goombas tall or make
a Piranha Plant fly by giving it wings?
• Players can instantly playtest and edit their creations on the fly. If
something isn’t working, go back into edit mode immediately by tapping a
button and make tweaks until everything is just right.
• With the tap of an icon, users can even switch the visual style between a
classic 8-bit Super Mario Bros. look and the HD world of New Super
Mario Bros. U in the E3 version.
