If I'm being honest, the main reason I picked up Super Mario Galaxy when it came out was to see Rosalina. Her character design has always resonated with me. I mean, the game is fantastic, but I think I now prefer Rosalina to ... read
I had a blast with Super Mario 3D World at the Wii U software showcase this morning. It was easy to fall in love with the game's art style, the return of one of my favorites enemies from Super Mario World, Charger Chuck,... read
Fans have been doing remarkable things with Mario games on the Wii despite the presumably long list of limitations that make the task a challenging one. That creative push from the homebrew community continues with this new ... read
Nintendo has revealed that it tested the possibility of releasing Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the 3DS, but had to nix any potential plans due to it being far too difficult to enjoy. According to the company, Galaxy 2's graphics m... read

Not a shock, but it's nice for it to be confirmed: Nintendo president Satoru Iwata confirmed that there... read
Fans have already given us loads of free DLC for New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros.Wii, and it looks like Super Mario Galaxy 2 is going to get the same treatment. The project is still very early though. The vide... read
When making any work of art, there are always those ideas that are had but never fully implemented. Sometimes that's for the better. The above video shows some of the concepts that didn't quite make the cut for the first Sup... read
We've been chatting with Frozen North Productions CEO Julian Spillane about Flip's Twisted World, a cool looking Wii platformer that I've personally been looking forward to. Whenever I see people talking about the game, I'm a... read feature
Here's the first episode of Season 2 of Sundays with Sagat. If you're new to the series, here's a quick recap; this is a video series where a man named Sagat talks to you about videogames. This is serious business. Sadly, Sa... read
I'm already on my second play-through of what I called the best Mario game that Nintendo has released. That would be Super Mario Galaxy 2, the May 23rd Wii release that wowed me in so many ways that I wanted to make sure that... read
For me, when Nintendo released Super Mario 64, it showed me that 3D platforming was the future. But, because of the camera and other control issues that had yet to be polished, I wasn't very excited for the future of 3D platf... read feature
I've encountered what I think is a bug in Super Mario Galaxy 2. I found it by...dying. A lot.
And I don't think this is a level-specific thing either. It just happened to me in world 6, in a stage where you use Rock Mario (a... read
Sounds like the Nintendo World Store's Super Mario Galaxy 2 launch party is going to rock. A man with cloud-white hair will be there, doing the voice of Mario and confusing people, because even though he sounds like Mario, he... read
I really liked the first US commercial for Mario Galaxy 2, but this one is better. This is how I would want a Mario movie to feel. Like the US commercial for New Super Mario Bros Wii, I'd want a new Mario movie to fully embr... read
While this commercial isn't as good as our first Super Mario Galaxy 2 commercial, it's good for Japan. Nintendo seems to be continuing with their series of commercials starring Japanese celebs on a couch playing their latest... read
I didn't need a 30-second video to make me want Super Mario Galaxy 2, but somehow this one makes me want it even more.

Information went around last week regarding Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's thoughts on how Japan seems to dig the 2D Mario more than the 3D version. It sounds like more of that worry that Japanese gamers fear 3D control, w... read
We don't know who the other playable character is.
First off, though, we know that Luigi is a playable character in Super Mario Galaxy 2, and now we know how. The Official Nintendo Magazine in the UK has a review of SMG2, and... read
I guess I'm happy because I identify with Luigi more than Mario. He's...not fat, and I think he has a better fashion sense. He doesn't always get the spotlight but he's integral to the Bros. successes. Kind of stupid? Someti... read
New to Super Mario Galaxy 2? Inherently stupid? Nintendo has you covered! Super Mario Galaxy 2 will come with a tutorial DVD that explains everything you need to know about the plumber's latest extraterrestrial adventure.
This is the seventh in a series of videos Nintendo has been quietly releasing on YouTube lately showing off Super Mario Galaxy 2. It features what appears to be a base of operations for Mario's latest adventure, Starship Mar... read
Super Mario Sunshine may be one of the worst selling Mario games ever, but that doesn't mean that it was all bad. Apparently Nintendo doesn't hate the game either, as portions of Super Mario Galaxy 2 clearly acknowledge the... read
May 23rd is already shaping up to be one of the best nerd days of 2010. Not only will the warm, long, lazy days of summer slowly begin to ease their way into our lives, but May 23rd, at least in my house, will be spent prepar... read

Just when you thought they couldn't come up with a different type of Mario, Cloud Mario appears. Or floats up. He was included in a collection of screens from Super Mario Galaxy 2 that you'll see a bit later in the day, but w... read
As much as I love Super Mario Galaxy, and as excited as I am about the sequel, I'm all about the plumber moving from left to right in 2D. It's less about nostalgia and more about my desire to partake in simple, polished platf... read
