This is a brand new clip showing some of the early stages of the upcoming new Mario game Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii.
So far it looks pretty good. I’m not quite sure how it will play with the movement between planets etc. Personally Super Mario 64 was one of my favourite games of all time, and I was hoping they would go for a structure more like that with great worlds to explore. I’m not too keen on the idea of space travel and running around on small planets.
However, Nintendo are known for excellence. I’m sure they will pull this off somehow. They radically changed the console format and functionality (which has been an amazing success), so why not try changing Mario?
I’m in two separate minds about this. On one side I would love some “more of the same” Mario greatness I have experienced on previous Nintendo consoles, but on the other hand it’s always great to try new things to give a fresh experience to the player.
What are your opinions on this game? Do you like the new direction being taken? Do you think it will be a hit or miss?
I look forward to your comments
