  • The story in Mario’s latest adventure takes place during the Star Festival, which is in full flow as falling stars shower down on the Mushroom Kingdom once again. Princess Peach invites Mario to watch the festival at her castle, but en route he comes across a Luma who takes a shine to him and dives into his hat to hide, giving him the Spin move powers. Before he reaches the castle, Mario is concerned to see that a gigantic Bowser, super-sized from harnessing the power from the stars, is attacking and capturing Peach. As Bowser escapes, Mario launches into outer space in pursuit. Cue an incredible mission in outer space – to save the Princess and bring peace back to the Mushroom Kingdom!

    “Super Mario Galaxy 2” is jam-packed with new features, including new ways to travel around the galaxies, brand new Mario suits, an enhanced co-operative mode, a Cosmic Guide – and a hungrier-than-ever Yoshi. They can platform and puzzle-solve to their hearts content.

    Press both the Ctrl and F keys on your keyboard to easily search for the galaxy or level/mission you need help with. Type the name to go to its help video.



    Sky Station Galaxy: Peewee Piranha’s Temper Tantrum

    Steer your way around Super Mario Galaxy 2 on Starship Mario. After completing the first level in the game Mario unlocks a spaceship, which is in fact a planet, transformed by a Luma to look just like Mario. Using this planetary ship, you can navigate the World Map on tracks between galaxies, harking back to the logical paths the classic Mario games took. Play and explore on this planet throughout the game and as galaxies are completed the Starship Mario gradually becomes populated with characters and features to enjoy.

    “Nice spaceship, yeah? More like a FACEship! Har har!”

    Yoshi Star Galaxy: Saddle Up with Yoshi

    On some stages, Mario can find an egg, smash it open and hop onto the back of Yoshi. Yoshi can use his tongue to grab items and shoot them back at enemies, or to snag attach points and swing across chasms. Your faithful friend Yoshi plays an increasingly important role in Super Mario Galaxy 2 and he has a special new feature. When he eats a light bulb-shaped berry, he emits a brilliant light to reveal hidden areas, but watch out as the ability only lasts a short while so Mario and Yoshi need to grab more berries to keep the platform they’re standing on secure! When Yoshi eats a “Dash Pepper” he is able to move at hyper speed allowing the pair to literally run up the side of walls. Also, after eating a Blimp Fruit power-up Yoshi can swells up and floats like a blimp, taking Mario with him to areas of the game otherwise unreachable.

    And if all else fails: The game features the Cosmic Guide; a helper mode which can help players who may find some areas difficult. This is done by talking to Rosalina, agreeing to her help, and letting a computer AI player finish the level for you; while you watch how it’s done. If you take back over before the level is finished by pressing the + button on your controller. However by letting the game show you how to play, instead of a golden Power Star, you’ll only get a bronze Power Star at the end of a level.
