Wii autopilot feature for DS too?

And titles other than NSMB Wii.

Nintendo may offer the Wii autopilot mechanic Demo Play on DS, as well as titles other than New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Japanese newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun ran the story (translated by IGN), claiming Nintendo is exploring "compatibility for its portable platforms" with regards to the level-skip-like mechanic.

Demo Play grants AI full-control of your character so you can be guided through tricky or confusing sections and not get frustrated. New Super Mario Bros. Wii is reported to be the first game with the feature.

That game, incidentally, was hailed as Game of E3 2009 by Eurogamer. Head over to our event awards to find out why.
