Rumor: PAL release date for Super Mario Galaxy 2 revealed

A few months ago, Shigeru Miyamoto said that Super Mario Galaxy 2 could have shipped to stores this year. However, Nintendo opted to release New Super Mario Bros. Wii instead. So while it’s a definite that Galaxy 2 will be released next year, it’s just a matter of when.

Well, if the latest rumor is to be believed, the game will be out in Europe in late August 2010. Shigeru Miyamoto told GameTrailers TV back in November that development was nearly finished, so would Nintendo really wait that long to launch the title?

I would LOVE to be playing a new Super Mario Galaxy during those hot summer months. I am hoping for a worldwide release and would be very pleased if this promising follow up was released then. Treat this one as a rumor for now gamers as a holiday release would seem more likely… We will see… Maybe the Big n will be releasing another stellar 1st party title later next year (Zelda anyone?)

WiiWaa Trailer

A while back we broke the story of a new Wii title that gives gamers the ability to control their on screen protagonist by stuffing your Wiimote into a plush version of the hero and moving it about. Now, we finally have an embedded version of the trailer above. I give you WiiWaa!! I think it looks rather intriguing and will be looking forward to hearing more about this potential blockbuster.

What do you guys think? I am starting to LOVE the idea and it looks pretty decent.
