Mario Stages Created By… You?

When recently interviewed by magazine GamesTM, New Super Mario Bros. U director Masataka Takemoto was asked directly whether level editing might show up as a possibility in future Mario games:

“I think the Coin Edit feature in Coin Battle is a step closer to that. There is a possibility of this happening in the future, but there’s no use just blindly making that feature available. We would need to carefully think about how to make such a system work. The important thing is that it has to be something that is uniquely Nintendo. Where a beginner can easily make something and have a good time, and simultaneously, someone who is really into Mario can delve into it deeper and make something more complex. So that is a challenge we will need to tackle in the future.”

In the Coin Battle Mode on the Wii U, coin placement is as good as it gets in term of editing a level… but it seems like a first step. And now you know the possibility is out there, and it may appear someday in the future.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
