Update: Turns out Galaxy 2 will not appear, as the rumor has already been debunked.

The Micromania Game Show will be taking place next month in Paris and one of the rumored playable titles at the show is Super Mario Galaxy 2.

The complete Micromania Game Show lineup has been posted below.

Daniel Larson, a largely wanted man in Lee County, Florida, was finally arrested earlier this week at a local Walmart after being caught with a handful of DS games in his pants (and shoes). An officer caught Larson in the act and quickly attempted to end the situation. Even though Larson pushed the officer to the ground, Larson was arrested shortly thereafter.

The criminal almost made off with $120 worth of titles. Just by doing the math, that’s probably around 4 games that he had shoved into his pants and shoes. Following his newest arrest, he admitted to police that he was planning to sell the DS games so that he could obtain money for heroin. Larson additionally said that he’d been using the drug for 15 years or so.

Larson has had a rather wide-ranging criminal record. In 1999 and 2004, he was arrested and convicted for armed robbery with a deadly weapon in 1999 and 2004. He was also convicted in 1999 for kidnapping. After most recently violating his probation for one of the armed robbery charges from 2006, Larson was again a wanted criminal.

Disney Interactive Studios has sent out an email to the press, teasing an announcement which will be made soon. Next month in London, the company will be releasing information for “an iconic new title.” I’d say that there’s a strong chance that this mystery game will turn out to be Epic Mickey. Although, Game Informer may actually have a first look before the event takes place on the 28th. The magazine has a teaser of its own in its latest issue, saying that “something epic is brewing.”

– Game originally was supposed to be around 30 hours, but now it’s at around 40
– Each character probably can carry 15 items
– Pace of the battles can quicken with auto-targeting
– Players can complete a bunch of sidequests that are optional
– Can switch items with previous inventory in hiding places when the story forces you to change characters
