The producer of the Super Mario Maker series, Takashi Tezuka, recently spoke to Game Informer about the sequel, due out very soon on the Nintendo Switch, as well as the original Wii U release.
To this day, Tezuka is still surprised by the creative creations the community has come up with in the first game – saying how he never could have imagined some of the ideas:
"There's actually somebody who made a calculator using Super Mario Maker. That was really surprising"
This level of creativity from players has possibly inspired Nintendo. Tezuka said there'll likely be a point in "years to come" when Nintendo draws on these creations:
"I do think we've probably been influenced by the things we've seen people making in Super Mario Maker up to this point
"But I don't know exactly what sort of concrete form that would take in the Mario games in years to come. With things like that, we'll put the game out, see the reaction from the fans, then make decisions about what we'll decide to include in games going forward."
Would you like to see Nintendo draw on player ideas and creations moving forward? Are you excited about the release of Super Mario Maker 2? Place a comment down below.
I think it's great that the creators can be wowed by what the players make. Imagine what would happen if we hit a Legend of Zelda maker...
"Would you like to see Nintendo draw on player ideas and creations moving forward?"
Based on player's idea ??
(Searching for my portfolio....) 🗃
Nintendo, please consider my ideas !
@Anti-Matter Pretty adorbs
I mean Nintendo developers are people too. They certainly play the games they make and would see fan creations and likely have fun with them too. No surprise they might be inspired by or influenced by those ideas.
@Anti-Matter I think you'd have a warmer reception on Furaffinity for designs like that. Nintendo would likely be more interested in game design ideas. So make sure you pick up Mario Maker 2!
I happened to remember seeing a video about calculators in Mario Maker. There's a channel called Ceave Gaming that goes over insanely complicated contraptions built in Mario Maker as well as explanations for them.
Ahahaha! What a story Mark!
Excited for a Super Princess Peach HD remake with rule 34 skins
@Anti-Matter You're a good artist, but that's not how game pitching works.
@Anti-Matter Any reason why the only one not molting is Tsurugi Red Crown Crane? Just curious about the design choice and story behind them. Nice designs though dude!... even if I doubt some art on a fan site will get you anywhere with Nintendo unfortunately Try drawing them in block art in Mario Maker 2! Haha
donkey kong maker?
I’d heard of the calculator stage, never played it, but it is cool to see Nintendo higher ups notice these community creations.
Most top rated and most played levels in SMM are crap. I had such a hard time finding some good designed levels, that I just gave up and hoped for some surprises in 100-Mario-Challenge.
BTW seems like a new (or rather very old), unknown item was discovered in SMM 2. 😉
If they just put the roll and more importantly the rolling jump from Returns into the 3D World style MM2 would become a game of the decade contender, the roll jump is one of the best feeling moves in any platformer and I’m sure creators could have a lot of fun with it. I know this style has the long jump but it’s the gimped 3D World one while the Returns roll jump is the 2D equivalent of the godly Mario 64/Odyssey long jump.
My Tsurugi was not flying so he didn't molt any feather. 😅
To answer about my Avian Kickboxer...
I have an idea about kickboxing games, so after i have played K-1 World GP PS2, Street Fighter games and have ever knew about Dragon Ball fighting games, i created my own kickboxing game idea by using Anthro Avian as the fighter. They are Avian Kickboxer. Only birds which can fly are able to become Avian Kickboxer. I have studied about some bird species and their wing type. After i have studied their wing type, i have decided which bird should i choose and what role i want to give them.
So, here are some biodata about my four Avian Kickboxer.
1. Caleb the Dove
My main character as Avian kickboxer apprentice. His name is Caleb. He is a teen anthro dove . He is 15 years old Senior High School student grade 1. On spare times, he has part time job as Mail delivery boy. He likes Avian kickboxing sports since he was 10 years old. He wants to be a famous Avian kickboxer someday.
2. Russel the Raven
My another Avian Kickboxer apprentice. His name is Russel. He is a teen Anthro raven. He is a 16 years old Senior High School student grade 2. He studied in the same school as Caleb. He's not really a friendly guy, tends to be rude and getting alone. Despite of his rudeness, he is very smart and discipline. On spare time, he has a part time job as Pizza delivery boy. He's also practice to become an Avian kickboxer with a coach from Legendary Avian kickboxer.
3. Arnold the Eagle
My Legendary Avian Kickboxer, Arnold the Eagle. He is one of the strongest Avian Kickboxer. He is also a coach for both Caleb and Russell.
4. Tsurugi the Red Crown Crane
My another Legendary Avian Kickboxer, Tsurugi the Red Crown Crane. His name sounded like Sword in Japanese but actually i named him by Tsuru (Crane) and Gi (Justice). He has very famous signature kicks called Sword Dance Kick. He's one of Arnold's opponent on last match and also Arnold's friend. He is also a coach for an Avian Kickboxer apprentice, Swallow.
@SalvorHardin I'm having trouble working out which game called 'Returns' you're talking about - pls help me out.
I have uploaded my Avian Kickboxers to deviantart with watermark on it. 😀
I wish my Avian Kickboxers can be published in both video games and anime. 🤗
@Anti-Matter It would make for a super unique beat em up / platformer hybrid style game.
I was thinking my Avian Kickboxers for fighting games like ARMS.
@Jtoomer Fascinating video, thanks for the link!
Oh yeah I did the calculator level on my channel, and went through every possible combination. The Cluttered Chaos-Calculator by Giant
There's also the Auto: Binary 5 Bit Adding Machine by Giant
Personally, I think the binary calculator is more amazing, but, my binary math skills suck so I didn't go through every possible combination with that one.
Creativity knows no bounds Can't lie, I liked some of the band courses, also.
