Mario Galaxy is not dead, says Shigeru Miyamoto

Thank goodness

I'm not sure how many of you thought that Super Mario 3D World signaled the end of the Galaxy sub-franchise, but Miyamoto has seen fit to put a stop to any rumors that may be milling about out there. In the latest Iwata asks, Miyamoto states, "Just so there is no misunderstanding, I should point out that this doesn't mean we'll never make another Super Mario Galaxy game."

Rumors may have started due to the fact the Galaxy team is handling 3D World, but Miyamoto says this is a simple matter of logistics, stating, "The same team can't make both at the same time. And we can't bring in a second party and slap the name Super Mario Galaxy on it. I suppose we could idealistically make both in Tokyo, but we want to do something new too, so there was that dilemma.

Good for him, too, for not sacrificing the quality of the series by "slapping the name on it." Mario Galaxy 2 is my favorite Mario game of all time, so I'm extremely grateful that we'll return to that formula at some point. To find out where Super Mario 3D World ranks on that list, you'll have to wait until November 22nd.

The interview itself is really worth reading for any Mario fan, especially the parts where Miyamoto thought the Galaxy series was "too blue" and "more geared towards boys," so they adapted by making 3D World brighter with a wider variety of colors, and added Peach as a playable character.
