Starting later this year with the release of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, players will be able to pause, let the game take over in order to complete a particularly difficult level, and then resume playing. Insiders are saying that this will “reduce the barrier of entry” and expand game audiences by not having to buy a cheat guide or visit a cheat site.
Last month, USA Today interviewed Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, who confirmed this optional feature called “demo play” (tentative name).
“In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, if a player is experiencing an area of difficulty, this will allow them to clear troubled areas and take over when they’re ready…. And yes, we’re looking into this for future games, too.”
Built in cheats - brilliant or disastrous? Either way, the PS3 and XBox won’t be far behind and that spells trouble for cheat sites.
