‘New Super Mario Bros Wii’ Only Possible Thanks to Wii Processing Power

by John Constantine

Shigeru Miyamoto picked up a controller to demonstrate some of the fun you can have in “New Super Mario Bros Wii” during the Developer’s Rountable. He was then killed by a penguin. It just goes to show, just because you’re a creative genius doesn’t mean that you have the play skills to pay the bills. While chatting about “NSMBWii”’s four-player platforming, Miyamoto played up the Wii’s horsepower, saying that the multiplayer was only possible thanks to the Wii’s processing power. Nintendo is knocked often for the Wii’s diminutive tech, but “New Super Mario Bros Wii” seems to making the very most of it. Still can’t play it online though.
