Super Mario, like any good video game should, takes you by the hand and shows you the skills necessary to become a talented player. You are not simply thrown into an impossibly difficult situation, but rather, you are built up over the course of basic levels that serve as a form of tutorial. Each new challenge builds upon skills that you have been previously tested on, leading you step-by-step to mastery. The fact that Super Mario games can execute this so flawlessly may have ties to the Japanese art of yonkoma, and more specifically, kishōtenketsu. We explain how, and examine how it relates to the Super Mario Maker, in this week’s episode of Game/Show!
