Nintendo unveils Super Mario Galaxy 2 at E3

Houston, we have a sequel.

With a brief trailer showcasing similar gameplay to the original, Nintendo unveiled Super Mario Galaxy 2, a sequel to the 2007 blockbuster Wii platformer.

Reggie Fils-Aime said off-stage the game is set to release next year.

Making a bit of Nintendo history, Super Mario Galaxy 2 makes Wii the first Nintendo console since the original NES to host more than one proper Mario platforming title.

Nintendo said little, and details are sparse, but the trailer confirmed Mario will be reunited with his pal Yoshi in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

And for now, that’s more than enough.
