206w ago - In a recent interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, it has been confirmed that the new Super Mario Bros for Wii will be the first title to include a new "demo play" feature.
With it, players can pause at any level and let the game take over to complete it on its own and resume playing at anytime.
To quote: "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" confirmed Miyamoto, through his translator.
"And yes, we're looking into this for future games, too" Miyamoto says.
That means young kids no longer need to Google for cheats, purchasing strategy guides or even need to work hard to get to the next level.
Is this a helpful feature, or would you rather spend $50 to watch a couple of movies than to watch a game play itself? Feel free to share your comments below!
