Keiji Inafune is one of the best known game creators in the industry, and a designer that commands a great deal of respect. As a result it's intriguing to see him create a stage in Super Mario Maker while citing some principles first formed in the early Mega Man games.

That's the idea behind a Polygon video in which we see Inafune-san working on and explaining his own stage. Naturally you can play it yourself be visiting the bookmark page below or searching for CourseID 780C-0000-020E-166A; it's not been played much so far, though the world record is under 8 seconds - crikey.

Of course, the comments section in YouTube is full of complaints about the ongoing wait for Mighty No. 9. We'll all be relieved when that saga ends...
