Super Mario Galaxy 2 has finally been given a release date for the UK of 11 June this year, surely drawing Nintendo flack from the press for confining kids to their bedrooms playing with their Wii through the lovely summer days. Those fiendish Japanese, eh? What will they think of next? Best of all, there’s a lovely new trailer for you to watch. Doesn’t it look ace?
‘This upcoming adventure for the Wii console marks the first time a second 3-D Mario game has arrived in the same console generation,’ said Nintendo when they announced the game at E3 last year. ‘In the game, Mario rides his trusty dinosaur companion, Yoshi, to new stars and the fantastic worlds found there.
‘This 3-D platforming adventure provides longtime video game fans with a fresh round of out-of-this-world challenges in the style introduced in the critically acclaimed original. The game is planned for 2010.’
