Super Mario Galaxy 2 started life as a remix of the original

Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto held a roundtable event after the hustle and bustle of E3 died down yesterday. At the event the Nintendo legend spoke about the recently announced Super Mario Galaxy 2 in more depth than what was on show during the E3 presser.

He candidly said that the game began life as just a simple remix of the original game’s content – just slightly mixing things up a bit. However, he hastened to add that the game quickly expanded into a full sequel. as the team involved with development had so many new ideas that it would be a disservice to call the game a remix

He went onto say that around five per cent of Super Mario Galaxy 2 will consist of this original remix idea – the rest of the game will be all brand spanking new
