Miyamoto: Super Mario Galaxy 2 For "Veteran" Gamers


Posted July 10, 2009 - By bleahy

Will Super Mario Galaxy 2 be "hardcore"? In the latest issue of Nintendo Power, Shigeru Miyamoto shared the following:

"I do believe that there is a lot here to appeal to the more veteran and more experienced gamers, and I think it’s a title that they will obviously enjoy, but I really took it into consideration and tried to do our best to create a game that’s accessible to new gamers as well. And, you know, we also built it with consideration that we believe that people who played through the first Mario Galaxy have become better players."

I don't think the opening statement about "veteran and more experienced gamers" is that major, honestly. Super Mario Galaxy had a ton of crossover appeal with the "hardcore" crowd and I expect the sequel to be no different. This reads as a carefully placed nod to those "veteran" gamers.

The bit about Nintendo taking into consideration the fact that players may have gotten better after playing the first Super Mario Galaxy, however, is interesting. Could this represent the beginning of the Wii growing up with its audience? Honestly, I would just take more Mario Galaxy, but anything that adds depth and replayability is alright by me.

Besides Yoshi, what would you like to see in Super Mario Galaxy 2?
