Playdate: Building the Mushroom Kingdom in 'Super Mario Maker'

A lot of games are about wish fulfilment, but what if your dream is to make Nintendo games? Well, now there’s a game for that, too: Super Mario Maker — a video game creation suite that’s exactly what it sounds like. Nintendo’s been hyping this game for over a year, and it hits shelves today. How is it? We’re about to find out. Join me and Tim Seppella for an ad hoc remodelling of the Mushroom Kingdom, starting at 6PM ET (3PM PT) on Twitch.tv/Joystiq, on the Engadget gaming homepage or right here in this post.

[We’re streaming Super Mario Maker at 720p through OBS, so rest assured this game will look dramatically better on your Wii U at home.]
