What It Is

What It Is

It’s hard to believe that it has been three years since the first Super Mario Galaxy was released. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were transported to this strange and wacky galaxy that only Nintendo could conceive. Super Mario Galaxy 2, the sequel to the 2007 game, brings us more out-of-this (or any other) world adventures set among awesome, gravity-defying levels with spaced-out creatures and over-the-top obstacles.

Once again, Princess Peach has been kidnapped! You would think that by now Peach would have taken a self defense class or something to prevent herself from all these abductions but apparently, she hasn’t. As usual, it is up to Mario (and you) to rescue the princess. Traveling from galaxy to galaxy on a spaceship that looks like Mario’s head, you will battle enemies and solve puzzles across multiple unique levels, each with a boss at the end that you will need to defeat. Along the way, you will gather coins and star bits, get to try out some great power-ups and even ride everyone’s favorite Nintendo dinosaur-Yoshi!
