Super Mario Galaxy 2 Trailer

Nintendo brought the goods today at their Media Summit event. Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M within a month of each other? That’s insane. The Galaxy 2 trailer had me tingling with anticipation already, but what about Metroid: Other M? We haven’t seen anything about it and they’re already aiming for a June release? I hope it’s as good, if not better, than Metroid Prime 3: Corruption which is one of my favorite Wii games thus far.

This reminds me: I’ve got to do the Luigi run of Super Mario Galaxy before the sequel hits.

E3 2009: Capcom’s E3 Line Up Is a Mix of Old & New

posted in: Game News 0

Capcom’s very own Mr. Kramer, posted his company’s E3 line up for this year. It’s got some retreads like Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando (by the time E3 arrives), but it’s got a healthy dose of new spectacles such as Lost Planet 2 and Dead Rising 2!

Here’s the list:

  • Dark Void (PS3, 360, PC)
  • Lost Planet 2 (currently 360, PC)
  • Dead Rising 2 (will be “behind closed doors”)
  • Spyborgs (Wii)
  • Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles (Wii)
  • Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (PSP)
  • Marvel vs Capcom 2 (digital release for PS3, 360)
  • Fate Unlimited Codes (digital PSP release)
  • Street Fighter IV (PC)
  • Bionic Commando (PC)
  • Mega Man Star Force 3 (DS)
  • Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil (Wii)
  • Capcom Mystery Game #1 (playable in booth!)
  • Capcom Mystery Game #2 (announced at a press conference!)

What could those mystery games be? Marvel vs Capcom 3? A nice dream. Capcom vs SNK 3?! Strider remake? I do wonder…

P.S – Marvel vs Capcom 2 will be hitting PSN/XBLA on June 29, 2009.

Info comes from all over the web with some news from Microsoft’s keynote and other stuff I picked up today.

Enjoy!
