Mario Maker producer Takashi Tezuka recently talked about the capability to online share during an interview with US Gamer.

During the interview, he spoke about what his vision for Mario Maker was. “While you can make your typical Mario courses, you can also do things that you’d never see in a Mario game. I want it to be a place where you can use your imagination and do all the strange things that have ever popped into your mind.”

When asked if players could share those strange things that popped into his head, he said he really likes the idea of online sharing. As he said, “When you make a course, you naturally want someone to play it—that’s the point of it. Of course, if your friend makes a course, you’re going to want to play it, right?”

He wants to make sure the online sharing doesn’t have problems, though, because with uploading courses, “there is a challenge there.” He doesn’t want the popular courses to overpower the other courses. He wants to make sure that any course you upload won’t be lost within the array of other entries.

“Of course, it’s nice to have ranking and the like, but we’re trying to think of ways to ensure that everybody’s creations get seen by someone. That’s what I’m working on now,” he continued.

He also said there might be the possibility of a 3DS version if the Wii U Mario Maker does well enough, but he can’t guarantee that it will be exactly the same because he won’t be sure of how it will transfer.

Mario Maker will launch in the first half of 2015.
