Whoops, wrong entertainment conglomerate. Speaking of which, remember when Mario became more recognizable to children than Mickey Mouse? I sure do, and it was awesome! I’m sure that era hasn’t quite ended yet either given how little Disney actually focuses on the mouse anymore.
Anyway, Nintendo has a new Super Mario Maker trailer designed to tickle your nostalgia gland a little bit, getting players pumped for what is easily one of the two most exciting Wii U releases of the year. Super Mario Maker not only wants you to create your own levels, it wants you to remember what made the older levels such memorable classics as well.
I can’t wait until someone goes back to make World 1-1 with all kinds of nasty tricks, throwing a wrench into everything you thought you’ve known for the last 30 years.
Oh yeah, I guess New Super Mario Bros.’ assets are part of this package too. I almost forgot. Hooray. Does anyone even have nostalgia for those games yet?
Whatever. Super Mario Maker is an instant Game of the Year contender without even being released yet. It’s far and away the most exciting major release of 2015, and I couldn’t be more thrilled after this nostalgia trailer. This is going to be something special.
Super Mario Maker launches on Sept. 11 for the Wii U.
