…I’ll be playing this game – or at least a short demo version. I consider myself incredibly fortunate.
If you don’t already know, Super Mario Galaxy 2 was today announced for a May release in the US. Tomorrow, at Nintendo’s European press summit, I’ll find out when it’s likely to arrive in Europe. Hopefully a few other games (like Metroid: Other M) will be there, too.
The first Galaxy was a masterpiece, and easily one of my top 3 games of all time. Somehow the sequel looks even better, with more inventive and varied level design evident from the trailer, and a streamlined hub (more akin to the world select screens in the 2D Marios rather than the slightly awkward – albeit beautiful – Comet Observatory). If you’ve not yet watched the trailer, click here and prepare to grin.
