We've got space, castles and marshmallows that throw lightning.

Although tomorrow's Wii U downloads will be light, but there will be plenty of jumping plumbers.

Nintendo's North American website has updated to show Super Mario Galaxy - the original Wii title - will come to the Wii U eShop as a download tomorrow for the standard downloadable Wii price ($19.99 US, $24.99 Canadian). No mention was made of potential discounts as Galaxy 2 had, though we will check tomorrow's download announcement from Nintendo for clarification.

In Europe, two other Mario titles will launch on the Virtual Console: Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars and Super Mario 64 DS. The former came out on Wii in Europe previously, while the latter is the first launch anywhere for the title. New Super Mario bros Wii will launch on the Wii U there on January 7. Mario RPG will launch at €7.99/£5.49 and should be eligible for upgrade pricing, while Mario 64 DS will be €9.99/£8.99.

Too bad it's not Mario Sunshine. That's my favorite 3D Mario game.

We finally see Mario 64 DS, but in Europe. I'm curious how it turned out. Hoping it comes here soon.

I'd want it, but the dark filter put on N64 games is a real turn-off on Wii U VC.
