Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The amazing new Super Mario Galaxy(TM) game launches
for Wii(TM) in T-minus 3 ... 2 ... 1. The hottest game for the hottest

Video game icon Mario(TM) launches into space and encounters a multitude of
crazy creatures on unbelievable planets. Players master the changing gravities

attacks or stall enemies to help Mario. It's a way for the newcomers that
Nintendo has brought into the world of video games to play right alongside
their more experienced peers.
"Super Mario Galaxy is a game that everybody can play, whether you've been a
Mario fan for 25 years or you just started playing Wii Sports," says George
Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and
corporate communications. "It's an easy favorite for game of the year and
should stand as one of the best -- and most beautiful -- games of all time."
In the game, Bowser(TM) crashes the star festival and carries Princess Peach's
castle into space. On a curious new planet, Mario learns a powerful spin move
that players pull off by shaking the Wii Remote. Mario also has an arsenal of
new transformations at his disposal, including the Boo Mario, which causes him
to float and fly through walls, and Bee Mario, which turns him into a
beyond-adorable flying bee.
