Characters[edit]

Who has seen luma? Because when I saw the trailer I did not see luma and wouldn't rosalina be included if there were lumas? --Count b 21:04, 3 June 2009 (EDT) Count b

If you see Mario running away from the two Banzai Bills, he'll Spin jump and a Luma appears briefly after him. --

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png 21:18, 3 June 2009 (EDT)

Yeah. I said Luma, not Lumas, because so far there's only the one Luma that Mario had with him in the previous game that appears whenever he does a spin jump. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 08:59, 4 June 2009 (EDT)

I see so that means rosalina is in the game because in the first one rosalina gave mario luma so I am going to put rosalina for now. --Count b 11:59, 4 June 2009 (EDT) Count b

That's a bit too speculative. Just wait until we have some evidence. Just because something is "most likely" in the game, it isn't confirmed. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:41, 4 June 2009 (EDT)
Luma's appearance doesn't confirm Rosalina's. In Mario Power Tennis (GBA version), Waluigi is playable, but Wario isn't. --Grandy02 14:10, 4 June 2009 (EDT)

Yes, yes, understood. --Count b 17:54, 4 June 2009 (EDT) Count b

Hey, I have a screenshot of part of the game derived from a bigger picture. Should I include the whole picture of just the screenshot? General bob-omb.JPGGeneral bob-ombMKwii Bob-omb.jpg 16:46, 8 June 2009 (EDT)

You should probably put just the screenshot unless the image contains more screenshots of this game which then you should take each screen and cut them seperately and upload them one at a time. --Count b 17:09, 8 June 2009 (EDT) Count b

Ok. General bob-omb.JPGGeneral bob-ombMKwii Bob-omb.jpg 17:28, 8 June 2009 (EDT)

Well if star bunnies appear than that could mean lumas appear to.

Well i think that mega-leg type creature is probaly going to be called a "mini-leg"
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Catsrnice (talk).

I don't want to sound offensive, but come on! Stop your unnecessary speculation because we all know that will no be it! Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Confirmed Galaxies[edit]

Where exactly where those galaxies confirmed? Or are they just speculatively confirmed? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:49, 12 June 2009 (EDT)

It appears speculative. If it is actually confirmed, then a reference/footnote/piece of bibliography would be at the bottom of the article. Feel free to remove it. --RAP 13:53, 12 June 2009 (EDT)

There might be a slight typo in Haunty Hills Galaxy, every other source calls it Haunty Halls Galaxy. I think it should be fixed. -Damariogamr (talk)

New items[edit]

[1] [2] [3] [4]

Not sure whether any of these have been found/noticed. Also, can anyone point out to me where there's a "switch that stops time"? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 16:47, 15 June 2009 (EDT)

If you see the trailer, Mario appears to be switching a "clock"-like switch with the spin jump that turns the environment color into gray, and everything moves slowly.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

The "switch that stops time" appears in the E3 trailer at 1:33. When Mario hits the switch, the screen goes black & white, and the platforms stop rotating. The part in the trailer is too short to find out whether the time actually halted or just slowed down.
We definitely noticed some previously unseen items - two of them are the power-ups for Yoshi we already mentioned in the article. The other items don't really have a place in the article because we don't have the slightest idea what they do. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:59, 15 June 2009 (EDT)


Looks like the powers ups for Yoshi are some type of fruit. Stick2012 22:45, 27 June 2009 (EDT)

Also item boxes from Mario Kart series make their debut on a Mario 3-D Adventure Game, only that with a different appearence. Also the winged ? Block appears MasterBlaster3000

The peaches from Super Mario world reappear, probably serving the purpose of awarding Mario one coin when eaten with Yoshi. Mariomaruf

Why not try shaking the remote while Yoshi is getting the peper? (also can eat with the B Button) Blueyoshi.gifDεναnwøιfBlueyoshi.gif

Two things. The spinning mario kart like items boxes have at least one side with a red and black bowser face (like the ones in the red mushroom houses in the New Super Mario Bros Wii), a 1-up and gold coin. I guess you hit it and something randomly happens. Secondly, add crate to the list, there's one in the background whilst inflatable Yoshi is on the screen. The Last Stop

Release date[edit]

I found these release dates on my gamestop's games coming out when section and Super Mario galaxy 2 is 1/1/10. Can we put this on? And also NSMBwii is 11/2/09. So can we? 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

That's just a placeholder they put into their database. January 1st sounds like a very unlikely day to release a new game. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 18:45, 12 July 2009 (EDT)

Ok. If the nsmbwii one is real, they'll most likely reveal it when BiS comes out. 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

Actually, Booderdash (that's fun to say! lol), your wrong! It's 2/1/10. Yeah I saw it the other day so. - [[User:brandman1996|Brandman 18:27, 30 December 2009 (EST)

Where did you hear that? Its likely to be false because Nintendo hasn't revealed anything. Fawfulfury65

Not that I'm sure that it really does, but I've heard that it comes Spring 2010. --King Bean (talk ~ contribs) 16:02, 21 February 2010 (EST)

There's a discussion below about this, and it is stated it won't come out after summer. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

3-D series[edit]

Should we go ahead and consider it part of the 3-D series? Mario freak (talk)

Well, yeah. It is a 3-D game so why not.--fawfulfury65 16:32, 17 July 2009 (EDT)fawfulfury65

Hey,...[edit]

Is it true that Luigi and Wario are in this? If so, post a screenshot or video. User:DK Fan

I'm removing them before a source is given. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:21, 4 September 2009 (EDT)

Why would Wario be in this game? Damariogamr (talk)

Honeyhive?[edit]

That "planet with an Item Box"... doesn't it look like the Honeyhive and Gold Leaf Galaxy?? --King Bean My Page! Talk to me! Visit the queen! 09:40, 8 September 2009 (EDT)

It does look like it, doesn't it. Crackin355 (talk)

Sort of.... SMG Polari.jpg

Montey SMS Snooza Koopa Artwork.jpg 08:44, 4 October 2009 (EDT)

Similarly, doesn't the galaxy in the trailer where Mario uses the time switch remind you of Buoy Base? User:Dry Paratroopa/sig

yoshi in it?[edit]

i don't know yoshi's abilities but why the heck is he in this game!!!!!!!!!
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Capedarn freakin mario (talk).

He's in the game because the designers thought that he should be in the game. Nothing more to say. Fawfulfury65

Because He's awesome! He has a HUGE fanbase! And... the reason FwfulFury said... - [[User:brandman1996|Brandman 18:30, 30 December 2009 (EST)

The Source Please[edit]

Where's everybody getting this information? User:DK Fan

What information? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 10:01, 7 November 2009 (EST)
The Grand Star returning, plus Paratroopa's inclusion! User:DK Fan

Our only confirmed source is the E3 trailer, if anything is not in there, it's not confirmed. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:03, 8 November 2009 (EST)

But then again, there is a high possibility that the E3 will some Beta elements.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Then it will require someone to find beta elements... How would we find them?? --Chain Chawful with Sworm.gif ☆ ☆ ☆ This is NOT GamingGal9's user page! This is not her talk!☆ ☆ ☆ Bowser memory ml.png

We need to compare new videos of certain parts of the game to the E3 trailer and see if the new one has anything different to it. Although there aren't many other videos on SMG2 yet...Fawfulfury65

Well surely some must be coming soon, now that nsmb wii is over it's the closest upcoming mario game also if you look carefully a paragoomba appears
The preceding unsigned comment was added by .:yoshi:. (talk).

Release Date?[edit]

Well, I got a little antsy about waiting to find out this game's release. So I checked a few websites. There is nothing on Nintendo.com, but on video game central.com it says the release is Febuary 10th 2010. This would Make sense becuase Miyamoto said that Nintendo is far along in development for this game. However, I have no idea if this is correct, and Feb. 10th sounds a bit random. What do you guys Think?Ratfink43

I don't think they'd lie about something like that. I think its true, but lets see other people's opinions on this. Can it be true? Fawfulfury65

Nintendo games in North America usually are released on Mondays and sometimes Sunday. If 10 Febuary 2010 is not on Monday or Sunday, it's most likely fake. In Japan and Australia, Nintendo games are released on Thuresday and in Europe on Friday. I hope this information might help. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

In Europe it's always a Friday, true. I don't think they are lying about a release date, but they just put in a filler into their database. Until we get official confirmation, we shouldn't put anything in the article. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:08, 2 December 2009 (EST)

On Nintendo.com, you can put the games list in release date order. SMG2 of course doesn't have an exact release date(TBA), but it is between the games, "Glory of Heracles", which will be released Jan. 18, and "Shiren the Wanderer", which will be released on Feb. 9. Since it is between those games in release date order(besides the other TBA games) it may be released somewhere Jan 18th - Feb 9th. It might. Fawfulfury65

That is VERY unlikely considering nobody has ever played the game or seen it in action, so far we only had one trailer. There is no way they will release the game in Q1. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 10:44, 3 December 2009 (EST)
I heard that Nintendo was just finishing SMG2, though. So, it shouldn't take that too much longer to be released. Fawfulfury65

But also, I agree with Cobold, I think that it'll be released in Q2 (From Abril to July)--Mateo (Talk · Contributions) 15:27, 3 December 2009 (EST)

Mario Galaxy 2[edit]

Mario galaxy 2I heard that Mario Galaxy is coming out on Febuary 21, 2009!!!
The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarioFAN (talk).

What? Fawfulfury65

Could you please elaborate and tell us how you came across this information? And I assume you meant 2010? This is just a small page about me. The Mario series is my favourite gaming series.

He obvioulsy doesnt know what he says. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 17:22, 8 December 2009 (EST)

"Main Page - Super Mario Wiki" WTF?! ¬¬' --Mateo (Talk · Contributions)

Recent Changes[edit]

Let me just say, there isn't much info on this game, so I watch this site very closely. I couldn't help but notice that there were changes made (They were changed back) Were they just being stupid, or have they seen something I haven't? They mentioned dolphins as characters, a cheep-cheep mushroom and that there would be 7 Power ups and 5 Fruits for Yoshi. So tell me, why did they make this up, or is some of it true?--The Last Stop

Then I supposed it was a vandal who wrote that. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Bowser[edit]

Who put Bowser as one of the characters? He's not confirmed, and his statue might just be a cameo. Mr. Anon 23:43, 15 December 2009 (EST)

Bowser and Bowser Jr.'s Airships have been shown, therefore it's assumed that they will be characters. OhlawdsHunter

True.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Come on, man! If you see Bowser's statue and airships and it's Super Mario Galaxy Bowser's gotta be there! Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

He won't not be in the game if we just remove him from the list. It's not a big deal, just add him when he's really confirmed. We're not here to make speculation, however accurate it may be. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 11:49, 16 December 2009 (EST)

Mmmmm, Ok. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Dude, its a mario game. of course bowsers in it!

Rosalina?[edit]

Is Rosalina going to be in this one, it would make sense for her to be in it--Daaviiid 11:28, 21 December 2009 (EST)

Could be, but we're waiting for a proper confirmation until we add her to the list. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:28, 21 December 2009 (EST)

The "Cosmic Witch" looks like Rosalina. Nintendo wouldn't ditch her this early.--Damariogamr 18:07, 21 April 2010 (EDT)

Well, I personnally think that it's Rosalina, I think she's using an hologram to help Mario, since she can't be with him, so she still can be with him :) Sambiss

If rosalina was there, then where is the comet observatory and all that jazz?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by SuperKoopaTroopa (talk).

Miyamoto doesn't want to go further into the story. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Yes, it's exactly why, he wants to have a little story. Well, since she's in the game, shouldn't we put her on the list? :) Sambiss
Let's stick to just cosmic witch for right now, as it also says she is Rosalina. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Okay, but I'm confused, if the cosmic witch is Rosalina, why would we need to create another article :/ I'm confused. Sambiss

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Galaxies[edit]

Some Galaxies I found were Broiler Boiler Galaxy, Cloudy Caper Galaxy, Driftwood Galaxy, Humonguos Fungus Galaxy, and Mushroom Melody Galaxy. - Shadoo Geno

Where did you find them? - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 08:31, 22 December 2009 (EST)
Either a fan site that had bad info or he made them up himself. There's no real way someone could've of found the galaxy names before Nintendo has any info on it. Hi!!!Nerdy Guy (People tend to make up stuff like that alot before a game comes out. Like how people said there was going to be a Toilet Man in Mega Man 10...)Click on the "y", please.
That's pretty much why I asked him for a source. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 08:53, 22 December 2009 (EST)

I found them on google!
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shadoo Geno (talk). Another one is Planet Boo Galaxy.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shadoo Geno (talk).

Pure speculation. The information you found was from a website. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
What did you mean about "not exactly"? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Do you count google as a website? Shadoo Geno. I have A picture of Broiler Boiler Galaxy. super-mario-galaxy-20060914080419050_640w

Can you give us a link to it? Or upload it or something? Fawfulfury65

They are fan made galaxies. Someone on youtube composed music and put them to backgrounds. Someone also made fake animations based on some of the trailer levels. The Last Stop


Hmm...I think that they are fan-made...sorry Shadoo Geno but Google is only a Website searcher and not a website...and I much cases this only is a result of the imagination of a person...--Mateo (Talk · Contributions) 21:37, 22 December 2009 (EST)

  • Uploads a video to Youtube of a fan-made competition for a made-up galaxy called "Bill Gates Galaxy". OH MY GAWD! THARZ A GALACKSEE CALLED BILL GATES GALLAXYYYY????? OMG! IT'S TROOO COZ ITS ON TER INTERWEBZ!!!!

IN seriousness, BowieZ, who's a YouTube user (and who's also known as BowieX on GameFAQs), composed some fan-made themes for this game. It was HIM that made up the names of the galaxies mentioned here. I'm guessing that what he called "Driftwood Galaxy" is what's now been revealed as "Puzzle Plank Galaxy" or possibly a part of "Tall Trunk Galaxy".
The preceding unsigned comment was added by TheUltimateKoopa (talk).

Yes, I watched them yesterday, curiously. They are fictitious levels. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Bosses[edit]

I heard a rumor about two new bosses, Icy Dino Pirhana and Bone Daddy(Big Dry Bones). Bowser and Bowser Jr. are also expected as bosses in this game. I'm also going to try and find the name of the Megaleg creature. Shadoo Geno

We need sources and references for the article, not just random guesses. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:59, 22 December 2009 (EST)
I say the same of before here =/...--Mateo (Talk · Contributions) 21:38, 22 December 2009 (EST)
Yeah, what Cobold and Mateo said. They'd be cool bosses though, but no info has been released.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
NO MOAR SPECUMALATION!!! Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Dark Mario & Identical Planet[edit]

I Have a piece of important information. In the E3 trailer during the "Dark Marios" scene some dark marios are seen following and mimicing him, which may mean that they act like mario and copy him in moving, but some Dark Marios were jumping and running on their own so are they obstacles or enemies. And another thing is that another planet looks identical to the planet which the Luma transforms in Good Egg Galaxy. User:MarioMaster720 23.12.2009

We all know that. The planet stuff was actually in the article. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

okay, yeah i saw the planet article too now, but i wonder if that identical planet is a clue to that maybe the game will feature some galaxies or planets from Super Mario Galaxy. User:MarioMaster720 CHRISTMAS.2009

That was also in the article. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Bowser[edit]

Bowser is not yet confirmed to be in in the game. Why is he in the character list? Just becuase there is an Ice Sculpture and Airships doesent mean Bowser is confirmed. While his apperance is very likley, it is not confirmed. Supermariofan14 said if Bowser's airship is there then Bowser has to be there. The airships do not confirm Bowser's apperance becuase A new enemy might have taken Bowser's airships just like the Subspace stole Meta Knight's Halbred Ship in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Ah, who am I kidding. Nintendo very rarley makes new villians, and for major non-RPG games like this one they ALWAYS use Bowser. I say we leave Bowser there until it is confirmed he isint there.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ratfink43 (talk).

It doesn't matter whether it's likely or not. It matters whether it's confirmed or not. And Bowser himself is not confirmed. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:37, 28 December 2009 (EST)
Besides, being Super Mario Galaxy, I'm 99% sure Bowser is in the game, you're right, Ratfink43. Anyways, let's take him out. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

E3 Rewind theatre[edit]

Thought I might add that the E3 Rewind theate has a trailer that goes over more information. Just type in "Super Mario Galaxy 2 E3 Rewind Theater" on Youtube.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ratfink43 (talk).

I think we already have the contents of the trailer represented in the article. If there's anything we've been missing, just add it. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:34, 28 December 2009 (EST)

Locked?[edit]

Why is the article locked? There is a tiny bit more information to add than what is there. As in the fact we don't know how big of a role yoshi play's or if you can even take him out of a level like New Super Mario Bros. Wii does. And all the planets in the video are not confirmed, and the fact that from the dark mario's... more of Super Mario 128 is coming into play, hence the multible playable Mario's. Well, could someone high-up please edit the info? Thanks, Brandman1996 :D 22:46, 31 December 2009 (EST)

Your account has to be at least one week old, sorry. :(--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Crates[edit]

I noticed that in the trailer for this game there is a crate similar to the crates in the Super Smash Bros Series. Yoshisprite.png YoshiDaisy Daisysprite.png fan1

The first Super Mario Galaxy already had those. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 09:07, 1 January 2010 (EST)

Wooden thing[edit]

That wooden creature looks like broque monsieur and broque madame.User:mr bones

Broque Monsieur ,the block collector in Mario and Luigi:Bowser's inside storyUser:mr bones

I don't think they look like Broque at all. Fawfulfury65
They have little to no similarities. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Well, it slightly looks like them, and that's all. It's a coincidence. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Platitudinous (talk) Why does it matter?

Reused planets[edit]

It says in the article that it was wrongly assumed that Nintendo would reuse planets for Super Mario Galaxy 2. But, I remember from the trailer, There is a planet that Mario and Yoshi were on that looked exactly like the planet from the Good Egg Galaxy From the previous games.

Yeah I noticed that a while back too. But it looks like it had a few minor adjustments and changes. Fawfulfury65
Well there is that one Yoshi head planet and a Buoy Base lookalike.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
This is like the third time this conversation takes place here. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Bowser Block[edit]

In the trailer at the begining you can see a pinning block in the background that presumably drops differnt items. One side of the block appars to have the bowser symbol on it, so can we assume that he'll be in the game because of that?--LuigiBros64

That's a lot of speculation put into one little block. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:50, 12 January 2010 (EST)
It's the same as the airships. That doesn't confirm it. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
you make a good point supermariofan. I also wanted to point out the block too.LuigiBros64

possible release date?[edit]

I just went to Gamestop today and asked about pre-ordering Super Mario Galaxy 2 and they told me it would come out June 1, 2010. Could this be it?General bob-omb.JPGGeneral bob-ombMKwii Bob-omb.jpg 21:54, 24 January 2010 (EST)

June 1 is a Tuesday. Sounds pretty random to me. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:45, 25 January 2010 (EST)
Didn't Super Mario Galaxy come out on a Monday? --Garlic Man (talk)
Yes, I think it did... at least I remember it being a weekday, and Nintendo only releases games on Mondays and Saturdays from what I've heard. I heard a rumor that SMG2 was coming out on August 27th in Europe. Fawfulfury65
Dunno, my friend says it'll come out in December. We can't be sure. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Makes, sense why that could not be it because nintendo.com still has it for TBA. But since when has the release date of galaxy ever had anything to do with the release date of this game?General bob-omb.JPGGeneral bob-ombMKwii Bob-omb.jpg
In America, 64 came out on September 29, 1996, Sunshine came out on August 26, 2002, and galaxy came out on November 12, 2007. Which of those were on the same day? or even the same month?General bob-omb.JPGGeneral bob-ombMKwii Bob-omb.jpg
Well... August 26 is very close to August 27. But what do these release dates do with SMG2's release date? Fawfulfury65

@Fawfulfury: I don't know where you heard the Saturday/Monday thing, but Super Mario Galaxy was released in Japan on a Thursday, Europe on a Friday, and Australia on a Tuesday. --Garlic Man (talk)

I thought it was only Monday and Sunday... Anyway, right now, why don't we just wait until Nintendo confirms the date? Fawfulfury65

Acually I went to Gamestop and they said June 6..............do you live in America, General Bob-omb?Ratfink43

Official Information has been released. Metroid Other M will come out in summer, and Galaxy a bit later, but it's not yet confirmed. June 6 is too early.. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

OK fine we will wait but can I have a source please?Ratfink43

"The third quarter financial reports briefing has been posted online and it gives a hint as to what Nintendo has planned for the coming year. A majority of the report talks about sales figures and also has tons of different software and hardware charts, showcasing the Nintendo Wii, DS, and their competitors. Towards the end of the report there is a brief segment about upcoming software releases. In particular Metroid Other M has been revealed to have a Summer 2010 release date, Super Mario Galaxy 2 will launch later this year, and the Legend of Zelda will be shown off at this years E3.


Super Mario Galaxy 2, a Mario action title in 3D world, will be launched this year. And, we will show the new Zelda title for Wii at this year’s E3."

It's from Zeldadungeon.net, but I don't have an exact source. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
I know for sure that Metroid Other M is confirmed to be scheduled for Summer 2010, but I haven't heard anything about Mario or Zelda. --Marcelagus (TCE)
I saw at Gamestop that they said it'll be realesed on June 1st, but this is kinda skeptical. It will most likely be released in the 3rd quarter at the earliest.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Yeah, July or August. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Let's don't assume. Just wait until Nintendo gives official information on this thing. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Between June and August? Fawfulfury65

Yup, like I said, third quarter. (Between July-September)--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Just to clarify, that was Nintendo Australia. This doesn't mean it will be released later in the US or any other place. Oddly enough, major games like these are usually released alongside the US, PAL, and Japan regions really close to each other in dates. I hardly doubt it will be released in June/July, or September. However, August does seem legit so that E3 members can see Mario Galaxy 2 as a "what you see is what you get" type-of-thing. MechaWave (talk)

Some Information[edit]

Platitudinous (talk) "Yoshi has an interesting diet. When he eats a Dash Pepper, he gets so hot and frenzied he can run up steep inclines and vertical walls. When he eats a Blimp Fruit, he inflates like a balloon and floats to new heights." "Skilled players will want to collect new Comet Metals, which will unlock harder levels with even more challenges." nintendo.com page

The game sure looks cooler than the original. Maybe we could add this as items? Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Platitudinous (talk) My point exactly. And more pictures are available inthis link.

New Trailer[edit]

If you look closely, in the second trailer, when Yoshi comes out of the egg, you can see the planet that was thought to be the one in Good Egg Galaxy. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Is the new trailer on YouTube? I have no idea where all these pics and info on SMG2 have been coming from. @_@ --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

It's coming from Nintendo's Media Summit. You can find the trailer, and screenshots, on nintendo's website and on youtube.--LuigiBros64

Toad?[edit]

Is there anything that proves that Toad is present in this game?PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Promotional art. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Yeah,but is he the "Toad"? PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Looks like it (he shows emotion? maybe), but since we have one Toad here only so far we should just leave it as Toad for now. We have no confirmation whether that that really is Toad and also no confirmation for whether that it is not going to Toad. User:Pichufan93

Oh come on. Like they're going to put a single Toad into a game. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Well it could be as he might be in the galaxies along with mario as one of the few ones there. Well so far we just see this one Toad instead of a couple and there must be a reason that he is on the artwork (despite not being a generic enemy). I think until we get proof that more Toads will appear we should just leave it to Toad. Just my thoughts ..User:Pichufan93

In the trailer when you see the mario head ship, you see more than one toad i think

Yoshis[edit]

There's three yoshis in the art.The green one is yoshi,but the others aren't.PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Platitudinous (talk) They are all the same Yoshi with different powers.
No proof. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Platitudinous (talk) All the proof I need.

They are all in the same place,so that means they aren't the same one!PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Yoshi is a species in this game, not a character. That's why there is more than one. Fawfulfury65

Are you serious? They're all the same Yoshi, and it's not like you will keep him in every galaxy. It hasn't been confirmed, but somehow, you may lose him like in SMW or leave each galaxy at the end in some way like NSMBW. MechaWave (talk)

In my opinion, I cosnider that there is only a Yoshi here, and he changes colors by eating a power-up fruits, similar to what happened in Super Mario Sunshine. After some time under the fruit's powers, the colored Yoshi returns to his green color. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Well now that I've seen the trailler,I guess it's the same Yoshi.PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

This is the same, Green Yoshi. It's shoe colors don't even change, that's the easiest tip. I suggest we remove the information from the orange and light blue Yoshi's pages as it's not actually them. It's similar to how Yoshi could change colors in MPT. ForeverDaisy09 19:52, 1 March 2010 (EST)

Bowser[edit]

In the screenshot with the Whomps, you can see a red Bowser head in the background. Does this confirm that Bowser is in the game? Lemmy Koopa Fan 21:34, 27 February 2010 (EST)

I don't think it's enough to confirm Bowser's presence in this game.It's like the snow statue PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

I wouldn't see the reason why Mario would just go out into the black Universe and having nothing to do. Bowser Jr. has been confirmed, so why would he just be there? To avenge his father? I don't think Bowser died in the original game. And since Bowser Jr. always wants to defeat Mario, then what would be the absolute point? I heard the story of SMG2 would be toned down (which I never saw any story in the original, except Rosalina's story), but that doesn't mean Mario can have nothing to do. Maybe Bowser kidnaps Peach as always, and you have to save her. Probably no bigger story than that. MechaWave (talk)

Yeah,but nothing is been confirmedPM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Bowser was clearly seen recovering at the end of SMG1, for your information. It doesn't really make sense to speculate here - from any logical point of view, of course Bowser is in this game. But we're not here to make assumptions, as accurate as they may be, we're writing the article only about what's confirmed. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 10:53, 28 February 2010 (EST)
It's quite obvious he's going to be in the game, but we still can't be sure. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
Well, the background is the same as the "Bowser Galaxy" backgrounds in the first game, and the red head seems to be one of his known "decorations". However, it's still possible that it's a cameo, although he has a very high chance of returning since Bowser Jr. does. --King Bean (talk ~ contribs) 20:45, 1 March 2010 (EST)

Paratroopa[edit]

Well, I don't know. There are several enemies that I never saw in the trailer or images. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png
There's also the first trailer and second trailer, but I didn't see a Paratroopa either. I suggest we leave it as is until further notice.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

It's possible that, that Red Koopa from the first trailer was mistaken for a Paratroopa. Mcboo-idle-ML.gifMcBooBlitzmanMcboo-idle-ML.gif

Koopas in Galaxy walk on four legs, and Paratroopas can also be green. Besides, it's hardly noticed, so no one could have mistaken it. Besides, there are like three or four enemies in the list that I didn't see in the trailer. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

a small question anyway[edit]

the mario galaxy 2 game looks better than the 1st one, an I still enjoy playing all the old mario games back in the day from super mario bros. super mario bros. 2(japanese version) an usa mario 2, mario world an mario 3 were good games too.

The japan mario 2 known as the lost levels that were 1st rereleased in mario all stars game 1993, anyway japan mario 2 is a hard game an frustating too but it's takes time an it's not impossible too finish the whole game from 1-1 to 8-4 an finish the game 8 times without reseting can unlock a-1 to d-4.


Anyway I'm looking forward for mario galaxy 2, an also bout the characters in the game is the bob-omb an pokeys are gonna appear in that game because they appeared in about every game sense usa mario 2. Expect mario 3 didn't had the pokey character in it.

An the only game that I thought sucked was mario sunshine an I was surprised when mario galaxy 1 came out in 2007 an it turned out too be a big improvment compare to sunshine.

Nintendo Power - April 2010 Issue[edit]

So, NP had an article on SMG2 in their latest issue, and revealed a couple of things. So I thought I'd list them here before I start editing, just so that people don't think I'm just jumping to conclusions:

  • Bowser returns to kidnap Peach once again. Same old, same old. Just thought I'd let you know he really is behind all of it again. Not like nobody expected it, but he just wasn't confirmed to appear.
  • Name changes: Gobblegut is actually Gobbleguts. Mallettoid has a full title of the Mighty Mallettoid. Digg-Legg is actually Digga-Legg. The "new version of the Dino Piranha," is the Peewee Piranha, which apparently has a pink/red weak spot on its backside that Mario has to hit a total of six times to win, with the Peewee Piranha getting powered-up halfway through the fight via rage, much like the Dino Piranha before it.
  • Yoshi can eat a fruit called a Bulb Berry to glow, which, judging by the art in the magazine, not only turns him a bright, glowing yellow, but seems to have the effect of nullifying the effects of dark matter, so that Mario and Yoshi can walk on platforms that have been made non-existent by it.
  • There will be no hub, like the Comet Observatory. Instead, Mario will simply select galaxies from a screen, much like New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Either that, or Nintendo Power only got to see/play a demo that didn't have the hub world for spoiler reasons. (He actually can access a mini-hub, the planetoid ship known as Starship Mario.)
  • "Comet Metals," are, in fact, called "Comet Medals." Thought I'd clarify that. I don't know who it was who thought that the misspelling of "Medal" as "Metal" wasn't a misspelling, but it was.

I think that's all the major things to change, so I'll get to work. Teamrocketspy621 17:25, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

PROOF! WE NEED PROOF! Hello, I'm Time Turner.
'Scuse me, Reversinator, what do you mean by "proof?" I have the issue itself as reference, what more do you want? Quotes? A scan? Teamrocketspy621 17:43, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
*coughcough cough* Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Oops, my mistake. I figured since it was still March when I got it, it was the April issue. It is, in fact, the May issue, plastered with SMG2's boxart on the front. But it looks like someone's already added a section with the scans, so I'll just try to forget that I ever committed this idiocy without first scanning the article. My bad, I'll let everyone else take care of it. Oh, geez, double fail. Those are actually Famitsu scans, not NP scans. Maybe I ought to scan NP after all. Well, then again, it seems like IGN covers almost everything that I mentioned above in their new article and gameplay video. I'm making a fool of myself here. What do I do? Teamrocketspy621 15:25, 31 March 2010 (EDT)

Maybe this sounds offensive, but I'm not convinced if you don't have some source (a link to a website or to the magazine issue) that support your find. Do you have one...? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png It's not enough just your own words.

I have the April 2010 issue and it has nothing about SMG2. Unless you mean the May 2010 issue, although that hasn't been released yet. Fawfulfury65

Platitudinous (talk) What reason do we have not to trust this guy? (Bowser fail!)

The last three are correct. Wayoshi even uploaded a video on the glimmer bulb berry, the starship mario, and etc. The first two, you need more proof. Bowser is unlikely in Super Mario Galaxy 2. KS3 (talk · contribute)

What do you mean "unlikely?" It's a main series Mario platformer; those games rarely leave Bowser out (even in Sunshine, which had a plot twist that revealed the new villain, Shadow Mario, to really just be Bowser Jr.). And isn't the fact that I mentioned the Bulb Berry a day before it was actually revealed on IGN and in the new trailer proof that I wouldn't be lying about what NP said the story was? I mean, details like these are just too small for someone to lie about. I mean, if I was really gung-ho about lying, I'd have come on to the site saying something stupid like "ZOMG GAIZ BOWZER IZ BAK ADN HE TEEMZ UP WIHT TATANGA CUZ TATANGAZ AN ALEIN ADN ROSALINA DIEZ AT THE END TO SAEV MARIO FORM BOWZER ZOMG I'M TTLY NOT LYING GAIZ," instead of wording what I read in NP in a calm, organized manner. This just isn't the kind of stuff you can make up. But... if scans for such a minor story detail are really that necessary, I'd be glad to oblige. Teamrocketspy621 16:42, 2 April 2010 (EDT)
What about Super Mario Bros. 2 (the one that the americans created because they don't like the other one?? That one has Wart as the boss, not Bowser. KS3 (talk · contribute)
I was gonna mention that game, but I used too many words and just took that section out of my little rant. Anyway, Super Mario Bros. 2 was not a completely American-original Mario game; it was a localization and Mario-ized version of a completely unrelated game, Doki Doki Panic, which, of course, not originally being part of the Mario series, would not have Bowser in it. They could've just as easily replaced Wart with Bowser, but they chose not to. Regardless, the game was not made as a Mario game with the idea of purposely not including Bowser. To put it simply, SMB, Japanese SMB2 (a.k.a. Lost Levels in America), SMB3, SMW, SM64, SMS, NSMB, SMG, and NSMBW, all the main series Mario games, had Bowser as the one and only villain. I rest my case and will scan the proof of his age-old role in the story, if necessary, to drive the point home. Teamrocketspy621 12:38, 3 April 2010 (EDT)

So far most of these are true. The chances the rest are true is very good Iruni181 (talk)

Platitudinous (talk) All of the above facts are in the May issue.

So this might imply that Bowser appears and kidnap Peach, and that's it. (AKA he only makes a cameo) When does the May one come out, I don't know, but this is April, not May. KS3 (talk · contribute)
I don't know how I got the May issue when it was still March, but I've had it for a few weeks now. Just say the word and I'll provide scans. I've been asking people to do that, but nobody's said they're necessary yet. ^^' Teamrocketspy621 15:13, 16 April 2010 (EDT)

Toad Bunnies[edit]

Don't believe me that Toad bunnies are really in the new trailer, well, it takes a keen eye, but at the start of the scene where Mario is in the ice galaxy with the Bowser statues, you can so a blue Star Bunny with in Blue Toad's outfit. Still don't believe me, see for yourself. Mcboo-idle-ML.gifMcBooBlitzmanMcboo-idle-ML.gif

Yeah, in the new trailer, I saw a bunny with a blue waistcoat in the bottom left corner in the snow area. But does that really make it a 'Toad Bunny'? Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC
No, wearing that outfit doesn't make it a "Toad Bunny". There were rabbits like that in the first SMG. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 15:39, 1 April 2010 (EDT)

Well, you know that Star Bunnies are Lumas that transformed themselves into cute little rabbits. Then how could a Luma turn into a bunnies with a Blue Toad outfit. It has to be Toad Bunnies. :XD Mcboo-idle-ML.gifMcBooBlitzmanMcboo-idle-ML.gif

I know that, but Star Bunnies also have a star-shaped end on their ears. Shouldn't "Toad bunnies" have a mushroom-shaped end at the ears? 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Uh, no. Maybe the Blue Lumas can also transform into Star Bunnies, perhaps? MechaWave (talk)

Mario Head ship[edit]

In the new features trailer, there's a planet shaped like Mario's head that works like a ship. Can we add this as 'A planet shaped like Mario's head that works like a ship'? Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC

IGN refers to it as the new mini-hub, "Starship Mario." Teamrocketspy621 11:49, 1 April 2010 (EDT)

Peewee Piranha Real?[edit]

i read in the latest issue of the magazine "Ngamer" that the "Petey piranha boss" is called peewee piranha. It has got to be true because they interwieved the creators which played a demo of the first level in "Sky Station Galaxy" and they said its name was Peewee Piranha. Should we keep this or should we remove it until it is officialy proven in trailers or pictures? (i also added it in the sky station galaxy page.

Ice tap tap from E3 trailer[edit]

I'm 75% sure that thing is a boss. Its huge, it has a big red button, its the only thing on its planet, and there is a few coins in crystals. The other thing that can confirm it is if Nintendo officially announces that this is a boss. I also believe the chain chomp thing is a boss, but there isn't as much evidence. Ganondox 19:35, 9 April 2010 (EDT)

I believe they are too. Even though I'm 9.9999999999...% sure, that doesn't confirm it. Nintendo actually needs to confirm it. Iruni181 (talk)

Anything that is not confirmed can not be added into the article. But if they do confirm it, go ahead and put it in. Fawfulfury65

"Mario can be seen progressing to the right, only to uncover a few question mark boxes. And who’s with him? Why it’s yellow Toad and blue Toad! Now the game is really morphing the separation I had established between 2D and 3D Mario games. I’m pretty sure this could destroy the space time continuum."

What an odd thing to say. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 20:15, 14 April 2010 (EDT)
How is that odd ? The guy who made the article simply believed that the 2D Mario games and the 3D ones where separate timelines, that's all. (yes, the Mario series has a timeline... and all the sports spin-offs, DiC cartoons and other things messed it up for us) Koopalmier 21:08, 14 April 2010 (EDT)
Because the chances of the space time continuum exploding due to a video game are vanishingly slim. Plus, there were blue and yellow Toads in the first SMG, so there's no real reason to be surprised to see them here. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 21:24, 14 April 2010 (EDT)

Have I heard of "humor"...? No. I have never heard of "humor". NEVER. Why don't you explain it to me? Obviously, the glasses aren't attached. He takes them off in one of the Galaxies in the original. And honestly, compare the relative heights of Bowser and Mario between Super Mario Brothers and Super Mario Sunshine, then come back and try to tell me that character height actually means something in Mario games. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 22:10, 14 April 2010 (EDT)
'k. So "humor" is about a guy slipping on a banana peel and... Oh, wait. Blue Toad didn't took off his glasses: they falled. And although Bowser was giant for no reasons in SMS, he came back to normal in the ending. In NSMBW, Bowser's size differs 3 times in the game: his normal size (1st battle), his giant size (2nd battle, Kamek's magic) and a bizarre size where he's bigger (ending, Kamek's magic after-effect ?). When they had a reason to change his size in the ending of SMS (so that Bowser looks normal next to Jr.), they didn't had any in the ending of NSMBW. Except if they plan to use that later...

The translations are for the most part very accurate. I might say "Shooting stars" rather than "Falling stars", but that's something trivial. As for the character that you couldn't figure out, it's "踊", which means to dance. It's literally saying that his chest/heart is dancing, meaning he is very happy or overjoyed about it. --Marcelagus (TCE)

Rosalina[edit]

Where's Rosalina?? KS3 (talk · contribute)

Unfortunately she might not appear here this time.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

I think the reason why is because the Comet Observatory disappeared into the black hole in the end of SMG. KS3 (talk · contribute)
Everyone disapared in the black hole in the end of SMG. Then the black hole collapsed because of the Lumas (remember: Lumas are stars) and exploded, making a "new Big Bang" in a way, and recreating everything as it was right before the Star Festival (with the exception of the galaxies Mario went through, that became a whole Galaxy). Rosalina may not appear because... there's no role for her ? The new "character that helps Mario and that Mario helps" is Luba. Rosalina undirectly appears, though, considering the intro is about the Star Festival. Koopalmier 21:19, 14 April 2010 (EDT)

People, Rosalina didn't appear, her ghost did. KS3 (talk · contribute) 17:36, 21 April 2010 (EDT)

People, we have no proof that it's the ghost of Rosalina. It could be a hologram, Rosalina herself, an illusion, anything. We just don't have proof. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
People, we got proof. It's here. It's called the Cosmic Witch. KS3 (talk · contribute) 13:02, 25 April 2010 (EDT)
That doesn't help...We already know it's calld Cosmic Witch, but we don't know if it is anything that Reversinator mentioned or an entirely new character. You just take us to the SMG2 article, which solves nothing...--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Orange Luma="Baby Chiko"?[edit]

That could be the name for the orange Luma that assists Mario in those scans? Note also the 2nd player's cursor; it's orange, so this means the player is able to control it. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

If you take notice at the screenshots, Baby Luma is actually the reborn white Luma. Koopalmier 21:05, 14 April 2010 (EDT)

If so... Anybody knows its name from those paragraphs? -- ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png 21:12, 14 April 2010 (EDT)

The orange luma is "Assist Chiko". The white one is "Baby Chiko". - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 21:17, 14 April 2010 (EDT)


Cloud Mario?[edit]

can some give a link that shows a video or pictures (except official artwork) of Cloud Mario?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarioMaster720 (talk).

The offecial artwork is convincing enough.PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

The official artwork's all we've got for the time being. Apparently, it was snagged by a magazine somewhere and they put it up on their site or something. IGN says they might have more information on it later this week in an updated "hands-on" article. Until then, we'll have to wait. A picture's worth a thousand words, anyway, and I don't know how or why someone could or would fake and hoax that. It looks legitimate enough, and if it's not, then down it goes when we find out. We can only wait and see. Teamrocketspy621 16:30, 18 April 2010 (EDT)

Haunty Hills Galaxy=Matter Splatter Mansion?[edit]

I was just playing the original game, and it occurred to me: Haunty Hills Galaxy (based on the trailers) looks EXACTLY like Matter Splatter Mansion from Ghostly Galaxy. I thought Nintendo said the levels would be entirely new. Those dirty liars! Damariogamr (talk)

No... it just looks similar. --King Bean (talk ~ contribs) 17:33, 17 April 2010 (EDT)

Comet MeDals[edit]

Look at that screenshot of it. Looks like a meDal to me.

I'm pretty sure meTal was only a typo on NOA's site (they're especially not always perfect with these things).

Just setting the record straight. BooDestroyer 19:32, 18 April 2010 (EDT)

That's probably why "Comet Metals" currently has a [sic] after it, because it is likely to be a spelling error, seeing how the items in question indeed appear to be medals rather than metals; however, we cannot change it to "Comet Medals" until we can cite an official source which states that to be their name. As far as I'm aware, the only official information we have so far on the spelling is the "Comet Metals" from the NOA site, so it will have to stay that way for now.--vellidragon 20:05, 18 April 2010 (EDT)
It says "Comet Metals" in the NOE site too. --King Bean (talk ~ contribs) 15:05, 19 April 2010 (EDT)

Eh, maybe just wait till the game releases, but still, it's more a common sense thing...

...*works for Nintendo* BooDestroyer 15:33, 19 April 2010 (EDT)


Alright, so I just saw on the Japanese site (reading some of the kana of it, I know this) that it's in fact MeDal! BooDestroyer 20:19, 22 April 2010 (EDT)

We can't accept the Japanese name over an English name and it actually says medaru and saying things like "OH YEAH IN YOUR FACES" will only draw the ire of other users but whatever. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 20:30, 22 April 2010 (EDT)

Again, common sense. And that's still the same thing. BooDestroyer

We don't violate wiki policy based on "common sense". Different people have different ideas of what common sense is. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 22:26, 22 April 2010 (EDT)

Yeah, anyways, I just checked the NoA site for SMG2 and it's still stated as Comet Metals. We could wait another month for the game's release or for some more leaked info. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Better quality Dash Yoshi artwork?[edit]

Is it possible to get a Dash Yoshi artwork of better quality like the other two with the black background and all? I understand this and the others have come from scans, but is it possible to better this one up like the others? BooDestroyer 19:03, 18 April 2010 (EDT)

I'm sure one can get if off of this scan: [10]

Cosmic Witch?[edit]

Hummm....excuse me, but...are you SURE that it,s not Rosalina? I think we should wait the game's release before saying anything on that and where did this was confirmed? Thanks, Sambiss

In NOA called that female-shaped thing "Cosmic Witch", but japanese info about it is not available, so by now, consider Cosmic Witch and Rosie as separate beings.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Okay :D I'm pretty sure it's Rosalina, but we'll do as you said until anything is confirmed. Sambiss
Well, just because it takes the form of Rosalina doesn't mean it is Rosalina. That's like saying that because Shadow Mario and Cosmic Mario/Cosmic Luigi take the shape of Mario means that they are Mario (or Luigi). Just like Cosmic Mario and Cosmic Luigi, the Cosmic Witch is just a Cosmic copy of Rosalina. Teamrocketspy621 22:19, 25 April 2010 (EDT)
Good point. In fact, the word 'witch' is in there... Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC

World - Galaxy List?[edit]

When more of the Galaxies are revealed, and in which World they appear in, should they be listed within each World as most other games are?

For example, if the people who have edited the articles on the galaxies with the Worlds are correct, should it be listed like this? (these are not necessarily in order):
World 1:


World 2:


World 3:

The other galaxies have not had their Worlds' revealed yet, obviously.--TheUltimateKoopa 08:58, 25 April 2010 (EDT)

The only ones that I know are confirmed for their worlds is Sky Station, Spin-Dig, Fluffy Bluff, Tall Trunk, and Cloudy Court. The rest are what people made up, but the ones I mentioned are confirmed and are in their right world as you mentioned them. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
The ones I listed that you didn't mention, I got those from the screenshots. If you look at that screenshot of World 2, you can see a small round galaxy which appears to have 2 waterfalls on the top, which I was thinking could be Cosmic Cove Galaxy, and those waterfalls could be the ones mentioned in Twin Falls Hideaway, for example.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by TheUltimateKoopa (talk).
Hmm, good assumption, but we'll see later on. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Curiously, the galaxies you listed are among the ony ones known. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

In on of the "transmissions" on YouTube, it shows Cosmic Cove Galaxy, and the number of stars says 0. Either the world is wrong, or you have the ability to destroy power stars in this game which would be weird. Damariogamr (talk)

Ripping Artwork[edit]

In a recent new scan, there is some new artwork; anyone care to rip them?

Thanks. Pikmin1254

Comet MeDal[edit]

I thought that it was a typo errors. WHere is the "sic" in the article next to the link called Comet Metal? KS3 (talk · contribute) 17:22, 29 April 2010 (EDT)

I think it's spelt that way in Nintendo.com. And obviously it's confirmed. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC
you spelled spelled wrong. and The item is confirmed, I don't know if the name is confirmed. KS3 (talk · contribute)
Its spelled as Comet Metals on Nintendo's official website. End of story. Fawfulfury65
I just found out that it is a typo error. Gamefreak redirected the article to Comet Medal saying that an English website had Medals in it, not Metals.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by KS3 (talk).

Metal or Medal, we probably won't know until May 23rd. Damariogamr (talk)--Damariogamr 20:54, 1 May 2010 (EDT)

it's Medal...--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Just because the site is official doesn't mean they're always right and perfect about it. BooDestroyer 01:42, 3 May 2010 (EDT)
>_>' Do you actually bother to read? It was Metals before, and now it is Medals.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Dude, it's a Nintendo site. And it should be official. (Reply to BooDestroyer's comment) Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC

In Stores May 24[edit]

so yesterday i went to Gamestop and the guy there told me that, as with many other games, the RELEASE DATE for SMG2 is actually the day it leaves warehouses. So dont expect the game to be in stores until May 24 (which is a Monday...)

Info and name of the wooden people?[edit]

Typically, these guys are just the simple NPC characters.

So far, the bird is Fluzzard and the Luma leader is Lubba...

But if anyone has found out what the wooden guy's name is, keep us well updated on that. Got it? BooDestroyer 14:02, 9 May 2010 (EDT)

Where was the bird's name? And someone's sig is screwing up the page. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

In the description for Transmission 10, it says "Mario glides with Fluzzard". --Damariogamr (talk)

Right, but this ain't about Fluzzard. BooDestroyer 20:40, 9 May 2010 (EDT)

It isn't? Well, who mentioned that the bird is Fluzzard? You, did. He was asking where you got the name, and someone else answered--TheUltimateKoopa 13:09, 12 May 2010 (EDT)
