Are you a numismatist?

When the Super Mario Galaxy pre-order bonus was announced, it was met with mixed reactions. Nintendo World Report recently got our hands on the coin and one thing is for certain, Nintendo didn't skimp on the packaging. Check out some shots of it below. If you haven't pre-ordered yet, hopefully this will help you decide if it's worth running out this weekend and putting some money down. Also, scroll down to the bottom for a bonus shot of the back of game case.

Unless some place around town lets it go early, I'll be trying to get the $25 gift certificate deal from TRU. Otherwise, I would preorder it for the coin, but I'd wait until the day before to spite the markets.

Can we expect an NWR HARDWARE review for this? face-icon-small-wink.gif

thatguy, I preordered at Toys R Us myself, and I'm hoping to land both the coin and the gift card.

Huh... looks like I am going to pre-order after all. I really want that coin!

that Baby guyNovember 09, 2007

Well in that case, I'll preorder it Sunday. GRRRRR.

Haha, best hands on ever!

How is the gameplay? I've been dieing to know!

Yeah, I broke down yesterday and preordered at TRU for the gift card/coin. Now, let's hope they get it in early. face-icon-small-wink.gif

The gameplay is archaic, even more so than those press-at-the-right-time dragon's lair games. You don't even have any control here, each time you play you have a 50/50 chance of either winning, or losing.

I hear there's a trick involving drops to increase your odds, but if you use it against other players, they might get a little upset...

I'd preorder but I doubt the deal applies here and there's a high chance Gamestop will cost more than Media Markt.
