Mario Galaxy 2 for the “passionate Mario fan,” will be “a little tougher”
“What Mr. Miyamoto has shared is that if the first Galaxy was maybe more inviting in terms of all the audiences, what Galaxy 2 is going to be is maybe a little more Nintendo fan / harder gamer focused. A little tougher. The use of Yoshi makes it a little more challenging. We showed some of the snippets of some of the activities — it’s a bit more challenging. It’s going to be, if you will, for more of that passionate Mario fan who grew up getting challenged with Super Mario World. It’s going to be much more in that area.” – Reggie Fils-Aime
This is pretty good news! One complaint surrounding the first title was that it was a bit on the easy side. Sure, some of the later stars were difficult, but obtaining 60 stars was a breeze.
