Speaking with Joystiq, Mario maestro Shigeru Miyamoto admitted that – should the opportunity arise – he’d love to bring user-created content into Super Mario’s world.

“This is an area that I have a lot of interest in, and I think that the side-scrolling Mario games in particular are well suited to that idea,” he said.

“Of course the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series is one that’s made in North America by NST, but it’s one that I’ve been involved in and from early on. We did have a lot of discussions about how to enable that kind of level creation in that series.”

“And I think those types of interactive experiences are going to continue to broaden and we’ll see a lot more user-generated content going forward. I’ve always had an interest in those kinds of creative tools, so I will definitely be open to ideas like that in the future.”

Sackboy, you’re adorable and all, but it’s time for a real platforming hero to show you how it’s done. One who doesn’t control like he’s walking through jello.
