Super Mario Galaxy

This probably isn't the sort of Super Mario Galaxy article you were hoping or expecting to see around the time of the Nintendo mascot's 35th-anniversary celebrations but here we are...Twitter user and "starboy" CometMedal has been closely inspecting the 2007 Wii entry's logo.

So what have they found? An edited image of the Andromeda Galaxy, originally taken by Robert Gendler in 2005. Here's the full rundown, along with some comparison shots:

"I found the full image of the galaxy depicted in Super Mario Galaxy's logo - an edited image of Andromeda Galaxy taken by Robert Gendler in 2005. It took some tricky work to confirm, but I pulled it off."

Although the Andromeda Galaxy is depicted in Super Mario Galaxy's logo, the game - to our knowledge - is simply set in outer space above the Mushroom Kingdom. If you do want to visit this galaxy though, you might be better off checking out the 2017 EA title, Mass Effect: Andromeda.

In case you didn't know, the Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest major galaxy to our own, the Milky Way.
