Legendary Nintendo producer Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that Nintendo releasing Super Mario 3D World, doesn’t mark the end of the Mario Galaxy style games.
Super Mario 3D World is Nintendo’s first ever 3D Mario game in HD, and it looks spectacular. Nintendo Enthusiast has posted comparison of SM3DW and SMG 2.
Did you know Nintendo tested out online play for Mario Galaxy on Wii? The news broke out with a interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and key members of Tokyo EAD.

To say Nintendo’s games hold their value is an understatement. But it seems sales have finally slowed down to the point where Nintendo has officially lowered the price of three Wii gems. Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros Wii, and Wii Sports Resort are all $29.99 as of today.
