Stage Builder Possible for Mario Games in the Future

Nintendo fans have been craving a level editor in Super Mario Bros. for years and it might just happen in the future.

Whilst Nintendo themselves have a reputation for pixel-perfect stage design, fans have wanted to get in on the action and share creations with others. The latest entry, New Super Mario Bros. U, allows players to customise coin locations in Coin Battle, but not the physical designs of the actual levels.

The game's director Masataka Takemoto spoke to GamesTM magazine on the issue, revealing that it is possible and the team are thinking of a way to make a stage builder "uniquely Nintendo", catering for a wide audience. (3DS, Mario, Masataka Takemoto, Super Mario Bros., Wii U)

Create, Share and Play? seems legit

It's mandatory at this point
LBP is so immersive, though I enjoy the platforming in the Mario Bros. series.

id like to see this in mario games and zelda games. "design your own dungeon" in zelda would be awesome!

Actually...
I'd rather what Valve does with their Left4Dead series (their source engine changes the game each playthrough, so it's always a different experience).

If they can make it part of a 'system' then that sounds good, I wouldn't want them to just add in a level design mode though.

The hard part for Nintendo would be to make sure they don't borrow too heavily from LBP. It's not to say LBP originated the DIY idea, But rather they made the DIY concept is it's backbone. What works well for LBP may not easily work for Nintendo.
