Wii New Super Mario Bros - Accessibility Feature



New Super Mario Brothers - Wii. Accessible Demo Play Mode. Nintendo's "New Super Mario Brothers" for the Wii is due to feature a unique accessibility feature: 'Demo Play'. If part of the game gets too tough, activating this mode will see the game take over and play automatically. Once demo-play has seen you through the tough bit you were stuck on you can de-activate it and resume manual play.

It's a great idea, although I was dismayed to see that Nintendo have patented it. I don't like the idea of an accessibility feature being patented. Good stuff like this should be shared. It's like patenting a wheelchair ramp. That's just not right. Thank goodness no one ever patented the wheel!

    That image is so amazing, so the multiplayer of Wii allows to play this Mario with 3 characters at the same time right??? I would like to see the princess as a person, maybe a sexy and cute blonde actress could interpret her, someone like Jessica Simpson, if I see it in underware or bikini it's better to get generic viagra.
