Dark Horse's Mario encyclopedia is coming West in October

After finding success with the Legend of Zelda series, Dark Horse decided to take a crack at the equally iconic Super Mario Bros. series in 2015 with the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia. This previously Japanese exclusive book chronicled all...

These Rosalina plushies are so cute they should be illegal

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 Peach any day. ...

Super Mario 3D World reunites Mario Galaxy composers

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, and the new ca...

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 hack/mod which ...

No Mario Galaxy 2 on 3DS because Mario would be a 'speck'

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 made Mario look ...

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 Mario Galaxy ...

GDC 11: New Super Mario game for 3DS announced, has tail

[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's an all-new S...

Fan made Super Mario Galaxy 2.5 is in the works

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 video above is more...

Unused enemies and planet from Super Mario Galaxy

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 Super Mario Galaxy...

Flip's Twisted World won't 'ride the Mario train'

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 always dismayed ...

Damn, Mario! Super Mario Galaxy 2's critical acclaim

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 our review (Ed...

Review: Super Mario Galaxy 2

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 platforming from Nin...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 bug found?

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 (awesome, BTW) to...

Mario Galaxy 2 launch party has swag and an old man

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 doesn't look l...

Mario Galaxy 2 ad shows us how to make a good Mario movie

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 embrace the weirdne...

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 game. This tim...

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-Cola commercial a...

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, which I'm not to...

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 in it they say...

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? Sometimes, but he's g...

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 water-sports-a...
