Down memory lane.

Super Mario Maker is getting a new patch December 21 that introduces a number of new items that the franchise has never seen before. Mario, the plump Italian plumber with a full-grown moustache, big nose, red cap and blue overalls, is the reason why most of us took to gaming as kids.With a large dose of nostalgia, event course called Mercedes-Benz Jump’n’Drive will be delivered with a special costume for players to unlock at no additional charge. But things are about to get better very soon: next week Nintendo is introducing a new web portal that lets you find levels from your computer or phone. The Mercedes-Benz Event Course takes players through a variety of automotive-related areas, including being at the dealership, taking a test drive through a city and eventually cruising down the autobahn.

It isn’t just a game played the world over, full of levels from the tiniest creators to contest winners, it’s also a game that anyone can pick up, and either start tinkering with a course or start playing the many shared courses. The best thing about the site is that it works in a browser on your desktop, tablet, or smartphone, so you don’t need to run over and power up your Wii U to trade with your buddies.

Better yet, you’ll be able to flag those primo levels from whatever device you’re working with — they’ll appear in the Course World tab so you don’t have to worry about finding your favorite works all over again. Introduced as ‘Jumpman’ by Nintendo’s Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto in Donkey Kong, Mario went on to feature in his own eponymous game in 1985. Nintendo first revealed the portal in a Nintendo Direct livestream last November, where they also confirmed that players have crafted over 3.3 million levels since the game’s launch.

What makes the tool really useful, though, is that you can queue up any interesting levels you find and then play them when you’re back in front of your console. While the hero usually battles aliens, turtles and minions while attempting to rescue Princess Peach in Mushroom Kingdom, along with his younger brother Luigi, the plumber has appeared in over 200 games, including kart racing, sports and educational versions, apart from the platform series making Mario the best-selling video game franchise of all time. It wasn’t as engaging as the experience of the gaming console.” He affirms that almost all the gamers he knows got introduced to gaming through Mario. “We’ve all hunted electronic stores together buying cassettes and trading them.” Venkat adds that while the new versions are great, he believes nothing beats the classics. “The gameplay is the most engaging in its original form.

Course pages will display infuriating World Record completion times, and designers get new items like bumpers, P Warp Doors and a Fire Koopa Clown Car (“capable of shooting fireballs as well as a powerful charged shot that can even destroy Blocks”) for even more effective trolling. P Warp Doors: Unlike regular Warp Doors, these are only visible while a P Switch is active – perfect for creating truly devious Ghost House courses. Anurag Saxena, a senior consultant at an insurance firm and a diehard gamer, affirms Mario was the first game he played as a kid. “I had this little master video game console and so did my neighbour. He’s my oldest friend right now.” While he’s played Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, he admits the classic Super Mario Bros was the best. “I grew up on it. Mario was pure and easily the best.” For 18-year-old architecture student and avid gamer Tushar Ganesh, it was curiosity that led him to the game. “The reason I started playing it was because I’ve heard a lot about how it helped introduce gaming to the world.

Players can also search using a selection of tags, making it easier to find courses that fall into a specific category such as automatic, puzzle or music. We hope that Nintendo eventually builds on its world-records feature to give you a leaderboard of just your friends’ times, because I doubt I’m going to chart when it comes to the best on Earth. Mario version where you need to throw vitamins to destroy viruses and save the world.” Venkat Ram, a software engineer in Chennai, recalls his father getting him the gaming console with the 99-games cassette, of which Mario was his favourite. “Mario was one of the first games I played.
