Check out Cloud Mario in action in this JP commercial

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...

Best Wii commercial yet: Super Mario Galaxy 2

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...

Iwata on why 2D Mario is better than 3D for Japan

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...

Super Mario Galaxy 2's other playable character? [update]

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...

Yay! Luigi playable in Super Mario Galaxy 2

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...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 stole my sunshine, looks hot

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...

Super Mario Galaxy: My favorite videogame this generation

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 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...

Hell yeah, Cloud Mario!

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...

Hot 2D action in Super Mario Galaxy 2, also Toad names

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...
