Mario Maker is unique in that it will allow players to create their own Mario levels for the first time. This led EDGE to ask Nintendo producer Takashi Tezuka in its latest issue if he believes the Wii U game could harm sales of future Mario titles.

Tezuka said in response:

“I think part of the fun of Mario is how you play and experience a series of courses, with boss battles, too, all of which get progressively harder. Mario developers build up the whole world, making sure the different courses all fit well together. I don’t think the overall fun you can have with an entire Mario game is the same as playing a single course made in Mario Maker, and of course future Mario games will include lots of new features… so I don’t think the two will ever be in competition.”

Mario Maker will be coming to Wii U in the first half of 2015. Players will be able to use assets based on the original Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros., though other classic Mario titles will likely be featured as well.

Don’t count out Pokken Tournament for Wii U just yet

Pokken Tournament was announced a few days ago, which wasn’t all too shocking given the teaser image we saw last August. What was a bit surprising, however, was that the game was only confirmed for arcades.

But don’t worry just yet! During Famitsu’s stream, Pokemon president Tsunekazu Ishihara was asked about the decision to make an arcade game. Bulbagarden points out, “The way Ishihara phrased his answer, talking about doing arcade first, does suggest that Pokkén will eventually come to console.”

Wii U, anyone?! I know I could see something like that happening!

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

In last week’s issue of Famitsu, Masahiro Sakurai wrote a new column that goes into detail about the debugging process with games. Although nothing earth-shattering was revealed about the new Smash Bros., it’s quite an interesting read (though there is some Smash talk).

We’ve finally managed to put up a translation of Sakurai’s column. Head past the break to read it in full.
