Super Mario Galaxy 2 (スーパーマリオギャラクシー2?) is an upcoming platforming video game in development for the Nintendo Wii. First announced at E3 2009, it is the sequel to Super Mario Galaxy, and will be released in North America on May 23, 2010[3] and Europe on June 11, 2010.[5]

Gameplay

Gameplay will be similar to the first Super Mario Galaxy, with a focus on platforming based on and around 3D planets with varying sizes and landscapes. The protagonist Mario will be able to ride the bipedal dinosaur Yoshi, who can use his tongue to swing across gaps, as well as eat different fruits that give him different powers, such as speed boosts or the ability to inflate like a balloon.[6] While the player retains the ability to collect Star Bits with the blue Star Pointer from the first game, while riding Yoshi the Star Pointer is replaced by a red dot, which allows the player to also aim and control his tongue.[7] This can be used for swinging off objects, pulling levers or, like in previous games, swallowing enemies and spitting them out.

Old mechanics will be returning from the first Galaxy, such as the blue pull star paths, 2D platforming sections, and gravity-reversing arrows. Power-ups such as the Bee Suit will be returning, along with the Launch Star for interplanetary navigation. Also, new items and gameplay mechanics were showcased at E3 2009. These include a drill that allows Mario to dig through dirt into new areas (and in some cases explore the interior of planets) and switches that slow time momentarily, indicated by a change to monochrome vision. Players can collect Comet Metals [sic] hidden in the stages to unlock harder levels with tougher challenges.[8]

Development

Super Mario Galaxy 2 was revealed at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto stated that the team had originally planned just to do variations on the original game's planets, but over time thought of all-new ideas. The game is said to have 95–99% new features, with the rest being previous features such as the Bee Suit. In Miyamoto's private conference, it was stated that the game is very far along in development, but its release was held back to mid-2010, due to New Super Mario Bros. Wii's release in late 2009.[9]In regards to the original game, Nintendo of America President and CEO Reggie Fils-Aimé stated in an interview that the sequel would be more challenging,[10] and Miyamoto said in a Wired interview that the game would have less focus on plot.[11] As of November 2009, development for the game is being finalized,[12] and the game's soundtrack is currently being recorded, which, like the original game, is written for an orchestra.[13]

While he has remarked that the game will be really challenging, Miyamoto is still currently unsure as to whether he and the developers will incorporate the "Super Guide" feature, introduced in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, into the game,[14] although Nintendo's Senior Manager of Product Managing, Bill Trinen, claims the feature will be implemented, supposedly differently to what was used in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.[15] The game made its playable debut at the Nintendo Summit 2010 on February 24, 2010, where a second trailer for the game was released, and its American release date on May 23, 2010 was finally announced.[16][17]

Super Mario Galaxy 2 (スーパーマリオギャラクシー2 Sūpā Mario Gyarakushī Tsū ?) is an upcoming video game in development for the Wii console. It is the sequel to Super Mario Galaxy. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was announced at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and will be released in 2010.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 was revealed at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009, citing itself as the first time a second full-3D Mario platformer title has been made for a single Nintendo console. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto states that the team had originally planned just to do variations on the original game's planets, but over time thought of all new ideas. The game is said to have 90% new levels, with the rest being previous levels with new objectives. In Miyamoto's private conference, it was stated that the game is very far along in development, but its release is being held back to 2010 due to New Super Mario Bros. Wii being released in 2009. In an interview with Nintendo of America President and CEO Reggie Fils-Aime, he stated that the game would be more challenging than the original. Miyamoto said in a Wired interview that the game would have less of a focus than the original on the plot.

Gameplay is similar to Super Mario Galaxy, with a focus on platforming based on and around 3D planets of varying sizes and landscapes. Power-ups such as the Bee Suit will be making a return, along with the Launch Star for interplanetary navigation, and the Airships operated by Bowser's son Bowser Jr. in its predecessor.

Mario will be able to ride the bipedal dinosaur Yoshi like he did in Super Mario Sunshine, and can use his tongue to swing across gaps, as well as eat different fruits that give him different powers (also seen similarly in Sunshine), such as the ability to inflate like a balloon and float, as well as speed boosts. While the player retains the ability to collect Star Bits with the blue Star Pointer from the first game, while riding Yoshi the Star Pointer is replaced by a red dot, which allows the player to also aim and control his tongue.
