At one point, Super Mario Galaxy 2 was Super Mario Galaxy 1.5

“As soon as we completed Super Mario Galaxy, we thought we weren’t able to include a lot of the new ideas that we really wanted to. As soon as the project was over, we started making something that we might call version 1.5. We did things like moving or adding stars to levels that were already available. As we made progress with this 1.5, we realized that there were too many things to fit into a version 1.5. That made us realize we should start from scratch and make Super Mario Galaxy 2. That’s how we started working on the game…. Usually we wait until the advent of new hardware, but for this time around, because there were so many ideas we were not able to include in the first volume, we thought we should make a sequel to that.” – Shigeru Miyamoto
I don’t think something like Super Mario Galaxy 1.5 would have sat well with fans. It’s definitely a good thing that we’re getting a full-blown sequel with new levels, new ideas, and new mechanics.
No plans for Cave Story sequel right now
“I haven’t decided if I’m going to make a sequel or not, but, for now, there are no plans.” – Creator of Cave Story, Daisuke Amaya (Pixel)
Right now, I don’t need a sequel. I’m just happy Cave Story was finally released on WiiWare. For awhile, it seemed like the game was never going to come out!

Sniper Elite on Wii coming soon – new bonus level “Flak Tower” revealed
Posted on 9 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 4 Comments
As part of the build up to the launch of Sniper EliteTM on Nintendo Wii in Q2 this year, exclusive screens of the new bonus level, Flak Tower, have been revealed for the first time.
Taking place after the original 28 missions, Karl Fairburne has re-entered Berlin to assist in the destruction of the formidable ‘Flak Tower’; an impenetrable fortress armed with battery upon battery of anti-aircraft cannons which is decimating the Allied airborne assault. His mission: get through to one of the most heavily guarded facilities in Berlin without being seen and destroy it from within!

Thanks to Ross M for the news tip!
Reggie on the Vitality Sensor, Netflix DS rumors, and more
Reggie on the PlayStation move…
“It’s certainly me too or Wii too, as I like to say. There is nothing that they showed that is surprising. There is nothing that they showed that is innovative and in the end it will come down to how much fun the software is. How entertaining the experience is and I’ve yet to see anything that highlights this as an entertaining experience.”
Reggie on the future of Wii…
“[The Wii has a] very long, very vibrant life in front of it.”
No hub in Galaxy 2, will have world map
Posted on 9 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 9 Comments
“You can think of it in terms of something similar to Super Mario World or New Super Mario Bros. Wii, where you will have a rather convenient map to navigate. We want players to focus on the joy of the action instead of getting to each game course. We wanted to make it as accessible as possible and as easy as possible for the players. Also because we’re going to incorporate a number of different stars and conquering all the stars is going to be one of the most challenging missions for the player, we want them to understand as easy as possible where they should go next and which places they should go back to in order to get access to the remaining stars.” – Shigeru Miyamoto
Man, I’m actually very disappointed by this news. Even though the Comet Observatory was my least favorite hub in a Mario game, I still enjoyed exploring it. I wonder if this is the end of hubs in 3D Mario titles…
