News: Mario Galaxy 2 dated!

Nintendo has come out in a press release today and finally given its sea of salivating fans a date to get excited about…Mario Galaxy 2 finally has a real date for people to pencil into their calendars. The game will hit stores on the 1st of July 2010 and will be the must-have title for Wii owners for the middle of the year.

Some of the new features:

  • A drill that allows players to drill right through to the other side of planets!
  • A boulder mushroom (ouch) that makes Mario into… well, a boulder.
  • Yoshi! In the form of a Yoshi egg… use him to swing over gaps, pick up items and hurl stuff at enemies. Also Yoshi has power-ups too 1) Dash pepper – allows him to run up walls 2) Blimp fruit – lets him float around like a balloon.
  • The game will apparently come with a DVD full of hints and tips for new players.

    Does anyone else see the irony that Mario Galaxy 2 might come packaged with a DVD that it can't play…….
