The Mario guru speaks on the level of challenge in the upcoming sequel, and its potential usage of the Super Guide.
In an interview with Official Nintendo Magazine UK, Shigeru Miyamoto has said, "Well, as far as the challenge of Super Mario Galaxy 2 is concerned, I think it's going to be a really challenging game."
In an effort to make their games accessible without sacrificing challenge, Nintendo has introduced a feature called the Super Guide. The Super Guide shows players how to complete a level in the event that they can't do it themselves. The first game to use this feature is the recently-released New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
When asked if this feature would find its way into Super Mario Galaxy 2, Miyamoto replied, "Whether or not we are going to incorporate the Super Guide, I just cannot tell. In general, wherever and whenever appropriate, I think we will want to incorporate that kind of thing, but I cannot commit to anything specific right now."
The interview with Miyamoto will be published in the Friday, November 20 issue of the Official Nintendo Magazine in the UK. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is set to release in 2010.
