A new Super Mario Galaxy 2 trailer showcases one new power for both Mario and Yoshi. New features always get people excited, don't they? Galaxy 2 is going to be jam-packed.
Here's the trailer in question:
Some returning levels? Well, not all the worlds in Mario Galaxy 2 are all-new, I see the Honeycomb Galaxy(the one where you have to keep climbing). Based on Nintendo, 90% of the levels will be all-new, so this is probably part of the remaining 10%
There is a hub world after all(-ish). A small Mario shaped planet-starship hybrid which you use to travel across the galaxies. No more needing x amount of star power to travel to distant galaxies, you follow a stage-by-stage progression. And still it looks very open-ended
On to the new powers. Rock Mario will come after Mario eats up a rock mushroom and will gain the power to roll about and bowl over enemies, literally(watch the trailer!).
And then we have Light Yoshi, when he eats up a light bulb or something and glows brightly to light your way through those annoying matter splatter ghost houses and dark areas.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 has been pushed up from June 11 to May 23rd.
Good news? The party is on, Nintendo! Bring us Galaxy 2!
