Yahoo! Mario Galaxy 1 is out on Wii U in Japan

Not as good as 2, but that’s also out

Starting today, Japanese Wii U owners can download the first Super Mario Galaxy on the eShop. As revealed by today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, it will feature all of the fixins’ that are already available with the other Wii U releases on the platform. While there was no western confirmation, I think we’ll hear something very soon — possibly next Thursday for the Nintendo Download roundup.

In terms of rating Galaxy, I don’t think it’s nearly as incredible as its successor, but it’s definitely still worth playing.
