New Super Mario Bros. Wii demo play

Nintendo games are about to get a whole lot easier.

In an interview with USA Today, chief creative designer Shigeru Miyamoto announced that the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. Wii would be the first game to support an optional auto-pilot mode to bypass difficult parts of a game.

“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,” said Miyamoto. “And yes, we’re looking into this for future games, too.”

First known as the “Kind Code” patent filed last year, the Nintendo endorsed cheat code has been tentatively named “demo play.” And I think it’s brilliant.
