We all love Mario and his unprecedented mustache. The tubby Italian is an iconic figure that has spanned over generations of gaming since he was introduced to us by Nintendo. With iterations spawning on just about every piece of hardware Nintendo has released, the series has continued to maintain an avid fanbase of both adults and children alike. I’m all for Mario, his servant gloves, and the nostalgic moments he and his colorful friends and foes have given me. And on May 23, it seems as if I’ll be getting a bit more of the hero who hasn’t been laid, as Nintendo vice president of sales, Cammie Dunaway, announced today during the company’s media event the release date for the anticipated Wii title Super Mario Galaxy 2.
The first Super Mario Galaxy was well-received throughout the gaming community, obtaining praises as one of the best games of 2007. Although the game has received a release date of May 23 of this year, there was no clarification as to whether or not the announced date was worldwide. Once we receive some illuminating insight on the release date exactly, we will update this post. So keep an eye out.
