Apparently there are production issues with the Super Mario Galaxy pre order coin. A reader of went into the Nintendo World Store to pre order a copy of the game and decided to ask about the coin. The employer responded there are production issues and concluded there's a strong possibility the coin won't be available until a week after SMG's launch. This problem is involved at store locations whom are involved with the pre order coin. Any similar experiences anyone?

We said a couple of days ago EB locations were getting the demo of Super Mario Galaxy- it is now available with a ten minute limit so hurry and get to the stores!

It appears one employee got a little Mario happy when he uploaded the game onto the Internet which means people, if they can find the torrent, can begin to play this highly anticipated title.

As it is frowned upon on the Internet we will not post the source for the game code no matter how much you want to play this. You'll have to unfortunately wait until November.

As we reported yesterday a young man planned on beating Super Mario Galaxy before it shipped next month and was recording his progress. Just so happens The Entertainment Software Association Members feel there's a copyright problem with this as all of the videos have been removed except the game disc clip.

Target shoppers you're in luck if you plan on purchasing Super Mario Galaxy come November. In fact you don't even have to wait until the shipping date, November 12, to get all excited!

According to Target's Nintendo Wii releases page Super Mario Galaxy will be available on November 5.

Word has it that Super Mario Galaxy will be available to demo at GameStop/EB store locations and stores with a Wii unit. If stores do not have a demo now than they will soon so be on the lookout! A time limit of ten minutes per play will be in order unfortunately.

An October 19 post in Don Reisinger's CNet blog "Your holiday gaming outlook", he credits the Nintendo Wii's success this holiday season to Super Mario Galaxy.

I expect the Wii to have a huge holiday season once again. With Super Mario Galaxy around the corner, some are touting it as the biggest jump in the franchise since Super Mario 64.

All in all, I think it's safe to say that first-party franchises have always dominated Nintendo consoles, and the Wii is no different. And regardless of what you think about this, it works for Nintendo.

With an expected November 12th release date, Super Mario Galaxy couldn't come at a better time for Nintendo. Not only will it make every Nintendo fan jump for joy, it'll force parents to make a decision -- should I buy it for my kids now or use it as a gift for the holidays? I guarantee the majority of people will choose the latter.

There was no official announcement made about this but SMBHQ News has been watching this story develop over the days and I am proud to say Luigi is for sure making an appearance in the Super Mario Galaxy.

Below is a video showing two people playing Super Mario Galaxy in which Luigi pops up a couple of times. It appears Mario has to rescue Luigi:

...happens to be on a Sunday? Nintendo says SSBB will now be released in the United States on February 10, 2008. Usually games are not released on Sundays so we'll keep an eye out for anything new. Nintendo's VP of Marketing and Corporate Communication, George Harrison, believes the delay will not effect the success of the Wii.

Director of the King of Kong documentary Seth Gordan is really interesting in adapting this successful Wii title into a feature movie. "I’d love, really love, to adapt Super Paper Mario into a movie, a movie that would constantly switch from 2D to 3D. In five years, 3D cinema is going to be really big," Now we must ask you, the readers, your thoughts on a possible movie spin off of this title. Thoughts being?

According to statements made by the Marketing Director of Insomniac Games, Ryan Schneider, Miyamoto drew inspiration for Super Mario Galaxy from their Rachet & Clank series.

"There’s evidence all around us I think, of certain games that have borrowed from Ratchet and Clank," he told Kikizo in a recent interview. "One that we’re even extremely flattered by is Super Mario Galaxy, with their spherical worlds; we did spherical worlds in Going Commando, and Up Your Arsenal."

"It would be amazing to think that Miyamoto-san thought that was so cool that he wanted to incorporate it into Mario Galaxy. Granted, he’s doing it in a different way, but it’s still a spherical world, so it’s flattering to see those sorts of things."

A review of Super Mario Galaxy done by Belgian magazine Gunk has been proven a fake according to a Nintendo representative. According to the rep the world wouldn't have access to this title until October 10th at the earliest “It is 100 percent not a review. No one in the world will have access to final game code until October 10 at the earliest.” Not only was Nintendo enough to disprove this review but the community also showed little interest. Most saying that they based their review on demos available at E3 this year. Take this as an alert to not read so called "Reviews" until after October 10 and at a trusted source.
