Super Mario Galaxy 2 E3 Trailer

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Check out Nintendo's Super Mario Galaxy 2 in action!

One of the biggest announcements to come out of the Nintendo camp at E3 had to be the announcement that Super Mario Galaxy 2 was coming to the Wii in 2010.

Most of us assumed a new Super Mario game was coming, but it took some of us off guard a bit that it was an actual Super Mario Galaxy sequel. The game takes quite a few ideas from classic Super Mario titles like the Ghost House and even Yoshi seems to play a much more prevalent role in this new Super Mario Galaxy title.

Below is a snippet from the official Nintendo press release along with the official E3 trailer for the game.

This upcoming adventure for the Wii console marks the first time a second 3-D Mario game has arrived in the same console generation. In the game, Mario rides his trusty dinosaur companion, Yoshi™, to new stars and the fantastic worlds found there. This 3-D platforming adventure provides longtime video game fans with a fresh round of out-of-this-world challenges in the style introduced in the critically acclaimed original. The game is planned for 2010.

Looks great of course. I still haven't beaten the first one though!



Andrew said:

Thank god. The original Galaxy was the most fun I've had with a game in quite some time.

The_Fox said:

I had a love/hate relationship with the first one, but I'm still looking foward to this.



Pastry said:

What? I thought that they were finally going to release Super Mario 128.



Popyman said:

Meh, looks like more of the same, which is sad. Maybe Nintendo is falling?




According to the Regginator () this one will be more for the core audience and noticibly harder than the first. And that is why they call him the Regginator!

Mario+Yoshi=INSTANT BUY!! I haven't beaten the Luigi portion of Super Mario Galaxy 1,but I think that will change soon! Speaking of Luigi,do you think he will be playable in this game?



Hawker said:

@ Popyman I hope you aren't a Halo fan, or Call of Duty fan, or Tales of fan, or Gears of War fan, Since for the most part they're more of the same too. Does that mean those developers are falling?

This will be totally awesome and epic! A must buy for me, one of my very most anticapated title, even more so then "The Conduit".



Haze4peace said:

Never completely finished the first one. I liked it too, dunno why i stopped. Time to dust it off and finish it. Can't wait for the sequel!

Wally! (my name for Yoshi since the SNES days)
Can't wait for this game! I LOVED Galaxy 1 so much!



James said:

Simply a must-buy on day one for everybody. Super Mario Galaxy was probably the greatest game I've ever played - and I say that through gritted teeth as a Sega fan.

Must pre-order it tomorrow!

Man, I can't decide which game I'm more excited about, this one or New Super Mario Bros Wii! I think Super Mario Galaxy 2 takes the cake though, how can you go wrong with Yoshi?! I know I'll be getting both these games for sure!



Starwolf_UK said:

While I have mixed feelings seeing this (I thought the reason Nintendo didn't do many Mario games was so each one was unique) it'll be good at worst.

Also I still need to try the first Mario Galaxy game. Thing is I'm not too happy paying full price for a game that is nearly 2 years old which between that and the backlog pile is why I've not bothered.

It really boggles my mind how people can be upset by this game. We normally get ONE main Super Mario game per system. So this is already a bonus. Plus the first game was amazing, what more do you want from a mario game?! Apart from it was a bit easy and no yoshi, but apparently they've fixed the difficulty and there is yoshi in this game... wicked. People 'disappointed' by this game are simply not mario fans.



Golgo said:

Looks like more of the similar to me. Which as far as I'm concerned is just perfect. Got my 120 stars a while back (which was not 'easy', I might say), so I'll probably go back and polish off 121 more as Luigi by way of warm-up!



Sean_Aaron said:

I hope it's not too much harder as I thought they got the balance right in the first one. Hopefully if Luigi is in there he's also easier to unlock as I'd like to think there would be one Mario game that stays in my collection...




The first game was a beautiful experience form beginning to end and I really can't wait for I need that cold shower and run round the garden (or I'll just fire up my daily Wii Fit 1 or something...)



mastersworddude said:

I can't belive that nintendo just announced 2 Mario Wiis, Metroid, Sin and punishment 2, a new Mario RPG, 2 pokemon games, Endless Ocean 2, Wii Sports Resort, and possibly ANOTHER Metroid, and people still complain, amazing.

I, unfortunately have this game but still haven't played it! I guess I'll have to find time to play this wonderful game.
