Watch Miyamoto explain how he designed Super Mario Bros. World 1-1

Arguably one of gaming's most iconic levels, Super Mario Bros'. 1-1, is given the walkthrough treatment by none other than Miyamoto himself.


Shigeru Miyamoto, the legendary designer known for his work on Mario, Zelda, Pikmin, Star Fox, and various other Nintendo franchises, sits down to give everyone a walkthrough of the classic World 1-1 level from Super Mario Bros.

Miyamoto explains why everything is where it is, and how some items are there to teach the player a mechanic which will be reused later. If you're interested in game design, or just want to learn some mind-blowing facts, watch the video.

Thanks, Eurogamer.
