There's been a fair bit of Super Mario Maker-related news and content to kick off the week, so here's something a little light-hearted to keep that going. Uploaded by Nintendo UK on YouTube, the two most important founders of Super Mario tackle a stage by the man behind Rayman, Michel Ancel; that's a star lineup if even we've seen one.
This is related to news earlier in the summer that Ancel has created a stage for Super Mario Maker, and the footage shared is from a special event in Paris on 3rd July in which Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka gave a masterclass on level creation. They take on Ancel's PAC-Mario stage, which can be treated as a score chaser.
It's a pretty entertaining watch, especially once Shigeru Miyamoto goes into his full range of expressions when under pressure in the stage.
Super Mario Maker. Beautiful.
So awesome. Just 4 more days!!!
So Michel Ancel pretty much made his own Mario and Pac-Man crossover, now all we need is a Rayman amiibo to complete Ancel's dream level.
I find it amazing that people like Reggie and journalists (looking at you IGN) suck at video games. Even people who do development like Inafune and Igarashi aren't very good and they admit that. However, Miyamoto rocks the controller. Funny how that works.
That's pretty cool and I look forward to playing it, myself. I just wish there was a way to force the player to collect a certain number of coins before the exit could be reached. You know, the kind of gimmick that level would have if it were included in a real Mario game, instead.
What makes this perfect is that if you switch it to the Super Mario Bros. theme, you can use the Pac-Man outfit.
@bro2dragons I was thinking that while watching that there must be a certain amount or something you need to get to move on but I guess not. I wonder if thats even possible in Mario Maker. Maybe make them red coins and if u collect enough red coins an item will apear that makes it possible to break through some blocks?
I now really want to make a Galaxian Mario level . . . which means lots of Lakitus!
Somehow, watching Miyamoto playing a Mario level is pretty entertaining.
I really love the way Miyamoto shakes the gamepad up and down as he plays. Shows how much he's into it and, That's such a "gamer "thing to do IMO. Kinda reminds you that he's one of us.
Why? Miyamoto more or less created the 2D platformer, I would expect him to be great at the genre. Who knows though, maybe he sucks at other games like first person shooters.
@sub12 It would surprise me if he didn't suck at first person shooters.
Mmh, what's with all these articles about Shiggy, NL? Something you're not telling us? New president, perhaps?
Hahaha! I love the bit where he goes up to the dead-end wall and jumps "if we had made the level there'd be a hidden item there!" xD. Thats me at every suspicious dead-end in every Mario or Metroid game ever
and then everyone in the crowd that was like ??? laughs after he explains lol. Gotta' love Shiggy
I never thought the day would come when I would be able to make levels for a Mario game. Awesome.
@FLUX_CAPACITOR Couldn't agree more!
@Jayvir I think its a question of passion vs. profession.
For most of these guys, video games are just a profession.
At this point in time, games are more then just pushing buttons. Its a whole industry in and of itself. And frankly, you dont really need to be a "professional" gamer to understand its ins and outs. Although it greatly helps.
With Miyamoto you feel, that its more of a passion for him. He basically invented what we call "gaming" these days, and that sorta thing doesnt happen through a sheer business decision.
And regarding IGN...do we really need to discuss this ? Most "professional" reviewers are as much of a gamer as my mom is.
Thats why i completely ignore professional reviews these days and mainly look fpr user reviews becaus ei know that i get an opinion from someone who really cares about what hes doing.
The shear look of frustration on Myamoto-San's face when he died is a true reflection of the gamer he is
I'm impressed, this is the first gimmick level in SMM that looks like I'd actually want to play it.
Very cool. I do wish Reggie knew how to at least play Smash Bros. I wonder how he is at Mario.
So soon we will have Contra Mario, Mega Man Mario, Zelda II Mario, Shovel Knight Mario, and........Mario Mario?
Another one of my design ideas taken before release. It is annoying how lots of the good ideas have already been created by all the people with pre release copies. So many things I wanted to experiment with have now already been done. Still obviously looking fwd to the game.
I don't know why it's so fun to watch developers play levels from their own games...but it is! Can't wait till release! 😄
What kind of standards does nintendolife have if they thought that miyamoto was "rather good"? Lmao
that was fun watching Miyamoto play that!
@Jayvir Reggie may suck at SMASH BROS, but he can handle himself well enough with other Nintendo games.
