This Is How You Make Levels In Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker is one of my most anticipated games of 2015, but that enthusiasm has been about the insane levels we've seen demoed. I haven't really stopped to think how I might create levels myself.

Until now.

This is a 13 minute video showing someone attempt at creating a level from scratch. It provides a good insight into how this Super Mario Maker's tools will work in the real world. You know what? Seems quite accessible. This will be familiar to anyone who has tried to make a LittleBigPlanet level.

One of the main advantages that I can see is the tablet interface on the Wii U's GamePad. Anyone who's ever used Mario Paint can attest to this: using a regular controller for this is super frustrating! I honestly believe that Super Mario Maker has a better chance at mainstream success because of the GamePad. If only it was multi-touch...

Ah well never mind.

To be honest, I don't know if I'll even make a level in Super Mario Maker. My plan is to just play all the crazy shit you guys and girls create, but it's good to see how it all works.


    I lasted a little over 3 minutes with the sound on. I suspect that would get even more annoying when doing it yourself.

    Looks great but I agree with B-ob, that electronic-sounding voice everytime you place/move an item gets really annoying. Hopefully you can just turn that off (without needing to mute the music too).

    I doubt it but I hope you can download levels onto a hardrive and don't have to be online to access other peoples levels coz once the servers are down the only thing I have left is my own creativity!
    On another note I think this game will be most fun with my mates as we make levels and try each others out together, playing your own has less appeal.

      I'm not sure if they've said exactly how that bit works yet but there are 100-ish pre-made levels with the game, so there's at least something to do without a connection

      You download levels and you don't need to stay online. This is Nintendo, not Microsoft.

    I can see it now. It comes out and millions flock to buy it. 6 months later 99% just don't bother with it any more.

      So that is different to any other game release because....

    They renamed Venus Fire Traps to Fire Piranha Plant- that's upsetting.
