Design Your Own Levels in These Great Nintendo Games
Do you want to design games instead of just playing them? Do you love the sort of customization that lets you create your own levels? Here are a few Nintendo games to try out.
RPG Maker Fes
Available as of June 27 for the Nintendo 3DS, RPG Maker Fes gives you user-friendly tools to create your own game and share it with others. As the title suggests, it’s geared toward RPGs, but other gameplay styles are possible if you put your mind to it.
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer
While nowhere near on the same scale, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer lets you design and customize homes for animal villagers–perfect if you prefer interior design to large-scale level creation.
Available now for both the Wii U and Switch, the popular sandbox game Minecraft lets you design and build whatever you can imagine. Players have created some pretty impressive levels in it, and the Nintendo versions of Minecraft include special Mario-themed skins, music, and textures.
Super Mario Maker
A list of Nintendo game creation software wouldn’t be complete without a mention of Super Mario Maker, the Wii U and 3DS game that lets you create your own Mario levels with a variety of editing tools. It’s best-suited for side-scrolling levels like those found in classic Mario games, but creative users have found ways to use it for other styles.
These are a few of the games available for Nintendo fans who want to design their own levels and games. Which are your favorites?
