Yoshi. Gusty Gardens music. Yoshi powerups. New suits. New galaxies. The first sequel to a Mario game on the same console since Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island.
I cannot wait. I cannot contain myself. I have not been this excited for a game since Twilight Princess. I am going on a media blackout from now on. No more screens or videos until it’s released.
I’m sure a couple will hit GoNintendo or elsewhere every now and then, but I know this game is going to be great. I want to save as much of it as possible for my first playthrough.
The only thing I’m hesitant on is if Luigi will return; if he’ll help you get a couple stars and be available for play after you complete the game. He was the brightest highlight in the first for me.
Still though… Yoshi. Controlled by the Wii pointer. In a 3D Mario game. Game of the Year 2010 belongs to one game.
