Miyamoto: Mario Galaxy 2 is for 'veteran gamers'

Nintendo loves to convince embittered and cynical "hardcore" gamers that they haven't changed, and nobody wants to claim that he's still "cool" more than lovable mentalcase Shigeru Miyamoto. If you were worried that Super Mario Galaxy 2 wouldn't be "hardcore" enough for you (and let's face it, you weren't), Miyamoto is here to put such fears to rest.

"I do believe that there is a lot here to appeal to the more veteran and more experienced gamers," he explains, "and I think it’s a title that they will obviously enjoy, but I really took it into consideration and tried to do our best to create a game that’s accessible to new gamers as well.

"And, you know, we also built it with consideration that we believe that people who played through the first Mario Galaxy have become better players."

Well, that's good then. Looks like Nintendo hasn't implemented its "look at the screen to win the game" system just yet. Perhaps they're saving that for Mario Galaxy 3.

Alright, how much of this Did You Know did you know? How much will you remember when, finally, it's your time to shine at pub trivia, your compatriots waiting for you to swoop in and save the eventing? The mushroom sound effect similarity to the flagpole sound effect? Pretty cool. And that recycled Ocarina of Time theme? I love stories behind iconic sounds.more

Admit it, you're a Yoshi ditcher

I've done it. You've done it. We've all done it. When you have to choose between Mario or Yoshi, it's always going to be Yoshi getting sacrificed for the greater good ... or for that damn Moon 3-Up x on the Cheese Bridge Area stage in Super Mario World. more
