A Galaxy of delights

It took a while (16 videos to be precise), but Nintendo have finally released a trailer for Super Mario Galaxy 2 that gives us more than just a teeny snippet of action, followed by loads of static and some American bloke saying silly things. This, the final clip of the series, has a whole load of action packed into its two minutes (although the daft motif is still there), and if it’s not one of the games of the year then hats will be eaten.

The full gamut of Mario invention is on display here, from graphics that are just on the right side of adorable, to neat looking level design and changing environments: we get both 2D and 3D platforming, and the underwater level looks very snazzy indeed. It’s a great time to be a gamer, so do your part and buy it when it comes out on 11 June, eh?
