Miyamoto: Mario Galaxy 2 is for 'veteran gamers'

Miyamoto: Mario Galaxy 2 is for 'veteran gamers' photo



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.

Nintendo predicted the amiibo shortage 11 years ago

A lot of folks were surprised at last fall's amiibo launch, and how scarce some of the figures were. They shouldn't have been; Nintendo gave them a heads-up almost 11 years ago. The intro for the Game Boy Advance's Mario vs. Donkey Kong shows even the famed ape unable to get his hands on these elusive collectibles. Damn you, Mario Toy Company! This has been your intention all along!more
