Nintendo's mascot sure has gotten the shaft during the company's last two console launches (his bro stole the GameCube spotlight in Luigi's Mansion, and then some mute elf took the Wii center stage in Twilight Princess). But when you're about to go intergalactic like the plumber intends to here, maybe some extra prep time isn't a bad thing.
Thanks to the Wii's funky new control scheme, this Super Mario takes the hop-and-bop platformer formula and wonderfully rewrites it. You'll use the Wii-mote to interact with these high-in-the-sky backdrops in all sorts of crazy ways, such as waggling it to hurl yourself from planet to planet and using the onscreen cursor to snatch items far out in the Milky Way. The dev team is even tinkering around with how using this joypad in tandem can enhance multiplayer (they've mentioned how one person could move Mario with the Nunchuk, while another provides aid with the Wii Remote).
