With that recent Mario Maker trailer getting everyone’s mouths wet, a recent interview with Takashi Tezuka has given fans even more to be excited about!
While the trailer only shows two graphics types (original 8-bit and modern Wii U models), Tezuka has been quoted as saying there will be “other graphical styles included.” He goes on further to mention that while he would like to add more graphics from non-Mario games, nothing has been decided yet. Everything, regardless, will be 2D-platformer-based. Tezuka also mentions he would like to add more enemy types than those we have seen.
If you caught the brief use of the flyswatter à la Mario Paint in the trailer and were excited about it, you will be happy to know they intend to add more Mario Paint-esque features, including music composition! And while no details have been made public on a sharing feature, Tezuka has been quoted as saying “sharing with friends is really the whole point of making levels.”
Currently, there is no concrete release date for Mario Maker, but it is currently scheduled for the Wii U in 2015.
