IGN has a new interview with Reggie. There’s some very juicy details on Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M.
IGN: You have a bit more insight on the development of Galaxy 2. What’s the direction for the game? Do they really want to blow it out or will it be more of the same?
Reggie: What Mr. Miyamoto has shared is that if the first Galaxy was maybe more inviting in terms of all the audiences, what Galaxy 2 is going to be is maybe a little more Nintendo fan / harder gamer focused. A little tougher. The use of Yoshi makes it a little more challenging. We showed some of the snippets of some of the activities — it’s a bit more challenging. It’s going to be, if you will, for more of that passionate Mario fan who grew up getting challenged with Super Mario World. It’s going to be much more in that area.
Harder Mario Galaxy 2? Oh yeah, there’s also further confirmation of the little Miyamoto event later tonight. It’s only a few hours away!!!!
