E3 2009: Nintendo Conference – Super Mario Galaxy 2 Announced

leave a comment »

The biggest announcement in the entirety of Nintendo’s conference, and certainly one that concerns actual gamers the most, was most welcome announcement of Super Mario Galaxy 2, due for release in 2010.

Compared to the sublime Super Mario Galaxy that was released back in 2007, Super Mario Galaxy 2 appears to give us more of that same platforming goodness that only Nintendo knows how to do. This time however, things are little different as Mario has brought his egg spitting friend Yoshi along for the ride. In Mario Galaxy 2, Yoshi will be fully playable and players can leverage his unique abilities (such as self-inflation) to reach previously inaccessible areas.

During the presentation footage the planetoid exploration gameplay appears to be retained with Mario a huge snowball around the planetoid, all the while jumping on enemies and collecting coins. Additionally, Mario was also seen taking to the skies in his bee suit as well as taking on a number of gargantuan bosses in some truly spectacular encounters.

Graphically beautiful and boasting the same perfect platforming mechanics which has defined both Super Mario Galaxy and Mario 64 before it, Super Mario Galaxy 2 should be the saving grace for Wii owners sick of fitness titles, My Little (insert casual pre-teen girl interest here) games and other such related shovel ware dogging their format.
