I don't think you guys understand how much I flipped out in the press conference this morning when Nintendo announced Super Mario Galaxy 2. Seriously, Nick Chester actually had to look over and tell me to calm down since I was breathing really hard and uttering the words "um" and "amazing" over and over again not quite under my breath (inside scoop: it was actually loud enough to annoy everyone in the three rows in front and behind me).
There really aren't any words to describe how much I love the original Super Mario Galaxy. It is easily ranked my #1 platformer of all time. Yup, even higher than my precious Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. As people that listen to RetroforceGO! know, I fall in love with good level design, and Super Mario Galaxy has some of the best ever seen in a videogame.
Lucky for us all, Super Mario Galaxy 2 seems to offer much more of the same splendid design and addictive gameplay the first game had to offer.
Check out the press conference trailer after the jump for some stunning footage and prepare to be amazed. Sure, it looks a lot like the original, but that chocolate cake I just had last night looked just like the chocolate cake I had last week, BUT THEY WERE BOTH STILL DELICIOUS! This sent-from-Miyamoto-heaven sequel also features Yoshi in some of the most smile-inducing gameplay sequences you will ever see. Try not to giggle when he and Mario are flying through space together.
Enjoy watching the trailer over and over again and trying your darndest to wait the excruciatingly long time until Super Mario Galaxy 2 is released for the Wii in 2010. This is the Game of the Show for me so far.
