MIYAMOTO ON NEW SUPER MARIO BROS Wii

NP: Which is developing [New Super Mario Bros. Wii]?

Miyamoto: The same team that did Super Mario Advance and DS New Super Mario Bros.--the same team through all those. Mr. [Takashi] Tezuka and M. [Toshihiko] Nakago are part of that group. Mr. Nakago isn't one of those people that comes out to the front, but Mr. Tezuka is the main one.

NP: How are the level in New Super Mario Bros. designed for multiplayer gameplay?

Miyamoto: We really didn't think about designing the courses or levels for multiplayer. They're designed for that single-player experience. But it's just fun to have more people playing together. We really didn't go out of our way to build anything specifically for multiplayer. I think the thing that we really had to focus on was kind of the opposite--we had a single-player mode, and all we had to do was make sure that within this level that it could be played with more. So we couldn't create anything that wouldn't allow us to put more than one character in there, and that was kind of tough. We've got that [auto-scrolling moving platform]--if you make that the normal size, of course, you can't get all four players on it; if you make it too big it's too easy. So looking at that, that's one of those things that we had to work on specifically because we have introduced multiplayer.

NP: What can you tell us about New Super Mario Bros. Wii that you haven't told anybody else yet?

Miyamoto: Well, you did see the penguin suit, but what you didn't see was how the penguin suit lets you move in water. That's something we haven't shown anybody yet. And one thing that I was going to show people at the roundtable but I completely forgot to do was that once you freeze an enemy you can actually pick that enemy up and throw that ice blook. There are a lot of things that you can pick up and throw around, link [in] Super Mario Bros. 2.

To me, apart from the castle/lava bits it looks like a DS game. I dont like the pre-rendered look vs the Super Mario world/Yoshi's Island cartoon look.

Looks better than the DS game no doubt. If it had online multiplayer I would be interested in getting it just to play with you guys.

 Yeah right, we can't even be arsed to get together for Brawl night for more than once. When it comes to organizing game nights we are by far the most laziest site ever.

I think I should sell that game. Since I got it I've played about 2 hours.
