Mario Maker shows its masochistic side

Step aside, New Super Mario Bros.

As shown at tonight’s Game Awards, Mario Maker is still in the works for a 2015 release and good lord does it look insane. Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto introduced new footage of the Wii U title and several of the user-created levels looked like they had just escaped from hell.

In addition to creating levels in the classic Super Mario Bros. style or in the vein of New Super Mario Bros. U, there are also options for Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. I can’t remember if the latter was confirmed already (it’s new to me!), but thank goodness.

Longtime Nintendo composer Koji Kondo, who opened the awards, will serve as composer and sound director on Mario Maker. I also hope it becomes a series, Miyamoto.
