Nintendo Announces Build Your Own Mario

When we played our very first Mario, back in the stone ages, we would never have believed that the day would come when we would be able to make our very own games.

The idea of that much power and responsibility would have been overwhelming - but that's exactly what's going to happen after an announcement from Nintendo during its E3 presentation. Mario Maker will be a Mario Bros game construction set for the Wii U, enabling users to build their own levels and alter parts of the gameplay.

There's no price tag or release date yet (although it's expected to be in 2015), but you can get an idea of what to expect by watching the short video below.
