Rumor: Super Mario Galaxy 2 Console Bundle Heading to UK

If you don’t own a Wii yet and want the upcoming Super Mario Galaxy 2, Nintendo might have you covered.

MCVUK recently posted an article, which they quickly pulled, revealing that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is getting a console bundle. All that remains of the article now is small picture through Google as seen to the left, or right if you are upside down.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 “8 uoıssıɯsuɐɹʇ”

Luigi returns in Super Mario Galaxy 2! You can find a good bit of footage after the jump, but most of it we have already seen before with Mario.

While playing as Luigi is fine, I hope he gets some unique stars to collect.  I personally like Luigi better anyways, but that is another story.

Transmission 8 marks the half way point to the 16th and final video. The next video will be uploaded on the 7th. Super Mario Galaxy 2 launches May 23rd in North America.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 “7 uoıssıɯsuɐɹʇ”

Transmission 7 of the Super Mario Galaxy 2 video line up shows off the giant Mario planet that Mario uses to navigate from galaxy to galaxy.

The planet itself acts as a miniature hub world with a handful of features. The farther you get into the game, the more content that will be available on your own little personal planet.

The eighth transmission will be received on May 5th! Continue reading Super Mario Galaxy 2 “7 uoıssıɯsuɐɹʇ”

Super Mario Galaxy 2 “5 uoıssıɯsuɐɹʇ” and “6 uoıssıɯsuɐɹʇ”

Transmission 5 hit as scheduled today, but Nintendo accidentally uploaded Transmission 6 as well. While Nintendo removed the video, some one caught it before it was taken down.

Transmission 5 gives us our first video look at the co-op mode – showing off the abilities and functions of the second player. Transmission 6 gives us another look at Yoshi.

Transmission 6 is scheduled to be re-uploaded on May 1st.

You can check out both 5 and 6 after the jump.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Cosmic Guide Details and More

Along with yesterday’s trailer, Nintendo released some more details and some screen shots (which are pretty much just screen grabs from the trailer).

The return of the 2 player mode isn’t as different as we may have thought. The second player can perform a variety of actions using the secondary Luma. Player 2 can hold enemies, perform a spin attack to immobilize or knock out enemies, make Mario jump higher,  and shoot starbits. 2nd player can also use the Luma to collect starbits and coins.

Sounds a lot like the first. But the most impressive and game changing feature for the 2nd player is the ability to tickle NPCs and send cheers and other messages to player 1’s Wii Remote. Mind blowing stuff there.

Riding off of New Super Mario Bros. Wii’s Super Guide feature, the Cosmic Guide will help less skillful players complete levels.  After dying a certain amount of times or spending enough time roaming an area, The Cosmic Witch, who looks a lot like Rosalina, will appear.

Players can choose for The Cosmic Witch to play through the level for them. At any time the player can take control again by pressing the + button. But, it won’t simply be a free ride to the end. At the end of the level, players will receive a bronze star instead of a gold star.

If you don’t want to use the Cosmic Guide but still need help, you can use the Hint TV feature which shows a quick video of how to complete an area.

Nintendo also announced a few more miscellaneous details. The starship, or rather the Mario shaped planet that acts as a miniature hub world, will become populated with characters and features throughout the game. Cloud Mario can produce 3 clouds before having to collect another Cloud power up. The the game uses the exact same graphical engine as the original Super Mario Galaxy.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is planned for  a June 11th release date in Europe and a May 23rd release date in North America.

Screen shots are after the jump.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Trailer #4

After the jump you can find the fourth Super Mario Galaxy 2 trailer. The trailer shows off the two player cooperative mode and the new Cloud Mario power up. It also reveals the “Cosmic Guide” feature which uses a shadow version of Rosalina to act as a guide similar to New Super Mario Bros. Wii’s Super Guide feature.

New Super Mario Galaxy 2 Power Up; New and Old Screen Shots

Nintendo revealed today yet another new power up for Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Cloud Mario.

As of right now, not much is known about the cloud power up, but it seems like Mario will be able to use clouds as platforms.

Nintendo of Europe also released a good bunch of handy dandy screen shots. Some of the screen shots are old, but be sure to check them out after the jump since a good chunk of them are new.
