So that leak was right. I found it funny how quickly people where saying that the Mario Maker was photoshoped and it wasn't real. :P

Romhacking: The Game

Wait... is this the hyped up "original IP" that Miyamoto was working on?

This would've been a great game, if this was on the N64 and ROM Editors hadn't been around for ages.

It's kinda how I feel about Nintendo's recent software output in all honesty.

Admittedly, there's been a market for such a thing for at least a decade.

Sadly, a decade is generally how long it takes for Nintendo to realize there's a market.

This looks like fun. I hope they have all the old power ups and yoshi riding! :D

I expect this game to be a lot more accessible and easier to use than a rom editior.

Congratulations! You've accomplished what PC gamers accomplished two decades ago...

Wait, so you can only edit and create individual levels?

There are already great free progams that allow you to create whole Mario GAMES with your own SM3 style overworld maps, with stuff from almost every Mario game.

Why on earth would you buy a whole game just for the sake of being able to edit individual levels?

I mean this thing would probably be very awesome if it allowed you to create like a whole Mario game, but this just looks like some kind of a simplistic level editor for casual games. No thanks.

Nope, Mario Maker is basically Lunar Magic in all but name. And I have a feeling Mario Maker will put unnecessary caps on number of enemies and stuff, unlike Lunar Magic.

Okay Nintendo.. brace yourself. since you're obviously just coming out of a coma, there are some things you need to know. THe berlin wall has fallen.

Eh I never used lunar magic so I can't really judge, I still think a lot of people will prefer the official level creator if only because it's on a console not a pc.

Indeed. What are those completely insane rom-hack designs called, the ones that have no mercy and leave no leeway at all? Kaizo levels, right?

"There is a wall in Berlin? Our German allies have not told us of any wall there."

...

Too soon?

The timing was perfect. My hat's off to you good sir.

this wouldnt been impressive like, 20 years ago, seriously at this point any half-assed programmer can make a mario clone with a level editor and upload it to the internet

LBP's level creation tool is more robust and impressive, not limited by a single plane, and the first game in the series came in 2008

if this was a 3D mario game with a level editor, now thatd be a different story, specially if it implemented all the mechanics found in recent 3D mario games

sneaky sneaky

Interests me at least. This also gives a reason as to why Nintendo took down that browser game that did exactly this. Heehee, silly Nintendo~ You wanted to be the one who did this first! *pats its head* You little rascal

PC? Try graphing calculators. I remember having a TI-83 calculator with Mario and a level editor, and that was probably 15 years ago.

Video:

wait, Nintnedo expect people to actually get paid for this?
this was a free program for over a decade.

Interesting, however I'm pretty sure I've seen fan games that do the same job and better. SMBX by Redigit comes to mind.

So... Will this lead to a Kaizo Mario: Wii U Edition?

Other than that, I get how this has been done for YEARS now... but, now we can have "romhacks" that look like they came out of Super Mario Bros. U! That, alone, makes this not as irrelevant as some people make it out to be...
