RUMOUR: Mario Maker at E3

Well it's that time of year again, as E3 approaches workers are currently busy building the event's booths ready for the media and public next week, but also taking pictures on the camera phones. Naughty.

Nintendo is probably the most secretive of the gaming community and usually has very few leaks and when they do it tends to be this time of year as third parties (set builders) get involved in E3.

Today's leak comes from what appears to be a low-res photo of Nintendo's booth at E3, Showing something called "Mario Maker" this is all we know but judging from the picture it looks like a Wii U game (the stylus) and seems to be a level editor (or an "art" style program but we're hoping for the former). I doubt we'll get any confirmation of this title before E3. 

Abe's Take
Custom stages have been something players have been asking for a while now. I'm not 100% sure on it myself as the quality of Nintendo work is so high. 

I did have an interesting idea. Nintendo will be talking about their NFC figure platform at E3 and apparently the figures will work across multiple games and systems. What if Mario maker is an App where you can make levels for Mario 3D world, New U and Mario Kart 8 and save your content on the figure? seems wildly impracticable considering the digital age we live in but this in Nintendo and they dont tend to let worlds like "practicality" get in the way of their ideas.
