Super Mario Galaxy

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 ...
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,...
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 ...
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...


Impish designer Shigeru Miyamoto has unleashed a few fresh details concerning Super Mario 3DS, claiming that it'll be the bastard offspring of Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy.  "It’s a combination of Super Mar...
[Update: Added what appears to be the first screens of the game, also from the keynote. Check the gallery for the goods.] Not a shock, but it's nice for it to be confirmed: Nintendo president Satoru Iwata confirmed that there...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Super Mario Galaxy 2 comes with a DVD that helps you play the game. You know, because Nintendo thinks you're all stupid f*cking idiots! Yay!
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...
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...
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...
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...
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. This has to be the best Wii commercial I've ever seen! It's like a cross between a holiday season Coca-Co...
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...
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...
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...
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. The...
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...
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...
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...
Nintendo has been on a big kick showing off Super Mario Galaxy 2 this year. Nick brought us a preview detailing Yoshi and some power-ups tied to the lovable dinosaur. Then Ben brought us a preview detailing the rock power-up ...
I got to check out Super Mario Galaxy 2 at Nintendo yesterday and one of the new things that was revealed to me was Galaxy 2's version of the Super Guide feature seen in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. There's actually two system...
Along with our latest preview of Super Mario Galaxy 2 comes this brand new trailer showing off some of the newly revealed features. In it you get to see the Cosmic Guide in action, the new cloud suit and how player two has b...
Super Mario Galaxy 2 is going to have a lot of Easter Eggs that fans will really dig and I noticed a few during my play time with the latest Mario story. The ones I picked up on were actually nods to my favorite Mario advent...
Nintendo has dumped an absurd amount of Super Mario Galaxy 2 screens on our laps today, providing bored Nintendo fans with plenty to gawp at like rudderless guppies. We also have character renders of Mario and his new super p...
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...
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...
It would take a lot to top the original Super Mario Galaxy. After all, that game set the standards of what the Wii is capable of doing with both graphics and gameplay. For Nintendo to make a game that was that good from the ...
Those looking for a challenge in Super Mario Galaxy 2 won't be disappointed, with Shigeru Miyamoto claiming that his game will be more difficult this time around. However, that difficulty is to be offset by an improved, more ...
For it being the first time it showed Super Mario Galaxy 2 to the press, Nintendo brought a surprising amount of the game to the company's media summit in San Francisco this week. Nearly 10 levels varying in style and di...
I think that any person of a certain age knows it to be a fact that Nintendo Power once had magical powers. The magazine today does not have these powers, it's just a magazine, but back then it was an amazing doorway into the...
You may have heard that Super Mario Galaxy 2 will feature 90% new content, but it won't have 90% new storyline, according to a Wired interview with Mario creator, and SMG2 producer Shigeru Miyamoto. Even though the original S...
Speaking to press in a small private Q&A session this evening, Nintendo visionary Shigeru Miyamoto told us that 90% of the content found in the upcoming Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be brand new. After the development o...
Last week we saw two Nintendo titans go to combat and the outcome felt just like Kimbo Slice's last fight. Landslides are always more painful when they involve two great competitors, so it was sad to tally these results and s...
Yes, I know, my headline butchered Twilight Princess's actual game name quite a bit, but there literally wasn't enough room for its formal name to fit. Besides, neither of these two game series need any introduction, so let's...
