Mario Maker getting more graphical styles, Tezuka wants non-Mario graphics, music composition feature confirmed

Posted on June 12, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

This information comes from Takashi Tezuka…

“Obviously, there will be other graphical styles included. And nothing’s been decided yet, but I’d also like to include other graphics that aren’t Mario.”

“No, it won’t be top-down (if something like Zelda graphics were included). It’s always going to be a 2D platformer.”

– Tezuka said he plans to integrate more enemy and object types than what appeared in the E3 demo
– Tezuka also emphasized the inspiration Mario Maker draws from Mario Paint
– He said that he hopes to include features similar to those of Mario Paint, including a music composition feature
– As for Internet sharing and Miiverse integration, Tezuka admits those details are still being worked out as well, but that he’s mindful of players’ desire to show off their level designs to friends

“Sharing with friends is really the whole point of making levels.”
