Nintendo Explains

Much has been said about the guide-you-by-the-hand hints system for gaming newcomers Nintendo teased about implementing at E3 this year. Gamers feared Nintendo was going soft on even its hardcore-aimed releases, but that seems unlikely, based on additional information on the "dynamic help system" that will debut in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, according to details found by Siliconera.

Nintendo of Europe's product page for New Super Mario Bros. Wii explains that this additional aid "allows you to access a mode showing how a level can be completed if you are stuck" and "jump into the action you’re watching on screen at any time!"

Some details remain unclear, such as whether levels completed in this mode count towards actual progress or if it's solely meant to be an advanced tutorial. You can understand the appeal of being able to see how a tricky section is done in this separate mode and have uninterrupted practice time before finally returning to the game and finishing it without Nintendo by your side.

Personally, I don't mind either way. I won't be using the mode. If someone wants to skip a tough series of jumps, how does that affect me? If anything, it encourages Nintendo's designers to keep designing for the hardcore fans, as casual players are given an opportunity to move right along if it proves too taxing for their abilities. That's a win for both sides of the equation.
