Super Mario Galaxy 2 Gets UK Release Date

Gordon Kelly


While I'll admit the Final Fantasy series leaves me completely cold, I can appreciate a good yarn with the World's most famous Italian plumber - and this latest outing is shaping up to be a doozy...

Nintendo has finally given us a release date for Super Mario Galaxy 2 and we Brits will be able to snap it up from 11 June. Still four months? On the one hand we should be grateful since this will be the first 3D Mario sequel to launch on the same console (a scary stat) and yet those lucky Yanks will get it from 23 May, so Nintendo will likely have brought a rash of grey market imports upon itself.

What can we say about the new game? From the brand new Media Summit 2010 trailer released this week it looks every bit as impressive as we had hoped and, while Nintendo can be criticised for many things, wondrous, sprawling, 3D worlds packed with imagination are not one of them.

Super Mario Galaxy was one of our favourite games of 2007, fingers crossed its sequel can succeed where Super Mario Sunshine arguably struggled under the weight of Super Mario 64. Yes indeed, 2010 is shaping up to be a classic year for gamers...
