Super Mario Maker | Featured

I don’t recall if I’ve mentioned it previously, but I am foaming at the mouth to get my hands on Super Mario Maker. Every new detail I see about the vast level creator looks more interesting, from Luigified Mario to the diverse tool sets and more. What makes the game especially cool is how we will be able to use our collected amiibo to reskin Mario as classic 8 bit versions of famous Nintendo protagonists. While we’ve already seen Link, Peach and others, now we finally have our first image of 8 bit Ness, and he looks gloriously retro.

If only he still had access to his psychic powers…

If that isn’t enough to sate the appetite of crazed Earthbound fans, then perhaps the video below will. In any case, my wait for the September 11th release date for Super Mario Maker gets harder and harder. Fingers crossed it will be playable at PAX Prime…
