Super Mario Galaxy was a critical and commercial success, hailed as one of the best games in the series and one of the greatest video games of all time. At the time of its closure in 2019, Super Mario Galaxy was the highest-rated game of all time on review-aggregating site GameRankings. It received outstanding critical acclaim, with the game's graphics, gravity mechanics, level design, soundtrack, setting, and story all receiving high praise. It won several awards from top gaming publications, including multiple \"Game of the Year\" titles, and became the first Nintendo title to win the BAFTA Award for Best Game. The game is the ninth best-selling Wii game worldwide with sales of 12.80 million. The game was released as a Nintendo Selects title in 2011, as a download via the Wii U's eShop in 2015, on the Nvidia Shield in China in 2018, and as part of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection for the Nintendo Switch in 2020. A sequel, Super Mario Galaxy 2, was released for the Wii in 2010.
Upon collecting enough Power Stars, the Comet Observatory flies to the center of the universe, where Bowser is holding Peach captive. While confronting Bowser, Mario learns that he plans to rule the entire universe with Peach at his side. Mario defeats Bowser and frees Peach, but one of the galaxy's planets collapses on itself, becoming a supermassive black hole that begins consuming the entire universe. The Lumas sacrifice themselves and jump into the black hole to destroy it, causing the black hole to collapse into a singularity and the universe is recreated entirely as the singularity explodes in a huge supernova. Rosalina appears to Mario, revealing that dying stars are later reborn as new stars. When the universe is recreated, Mario awakens in the Mushroom Kingdom, which was recreated in the supernova, alongside Peach and Bowser, and he celebrates the new galaxy that has emerged in the skies. If the player collects 120 stars, Rosalina will thank the player and, with the reborn Lumas, leave aboard the Comet Observatory to travel the cosmos again.
The company announced during its Nintendo Direct European broadcast that it has cracked the conversion techniques to also offer Wii games to download via the online store. And any games bought and downloaded from the Nintendo eShop will run without needing to boot into emulation mode first.
Once there, Mario defeats Bowser in his brand new galaxy, retrieves the last Grand Star, and rescues Peach. Just then, a large sun in Bowser's near-complete galaxy undergoes a supernova and becomes a supermassive black hole which begins pulling in everything. The Lumas from the Comet Observatory, including the apricot-colored Luma, throw themselves into the black hole in order to neutralize it, and it soon evaporates in a massive explosion. Mario appears in front of Rosalina, who saves him from the cataclysm and tells him that this is not the end, but a new beginning for the universe, which repeats its cycle indefinitely, each time a little differently.
Mario later awakens in the Mushroom Kingdom near Peach's Castle. He sees characters and enemies he met throughout his adventure celebrating together. Bowser and Peach lie next to him and begin to stir. When he looks into the air, he notices a newborn galaxy as Rosalina's words echo in his mind, and exclaims, \"Welcome! Welcome new galaxy!\" The camera pans out into space, revealing the reconstructed universe. After 120 Power Stars have been collected, a special cutscene plays after the staff roll: Rosalina thanks the player and says, \"I will watch over you from beyond the stars.\" before flying off with the Comet Observatory. Alone in the rubble left by the supermassive black hole, an apricot-colored Luma appears behind a decrepit starship. This alludes to the idea of how the universe repeats itself. The events of the past will carry out anew, with the lost apricot Luma searching for its mother.
Nintendo has announced that it will release select Wii games in downloadable versions for the Wii U starting today. Super Mario Galaxy 2, available later today, will be the first game to get the downloadable treatment, followed by the Wii version of Punch-Out!! on January 22 and Metroid Prime Trilogy on January 29.
Some people pirate stuff. Some people buy stuff legit. This is the digital world we live in. As has been said, all but one of those games was available for legit retail - they still got downloaded like crazy.Do I think Xenoblade's sales won't be affected by piracy No. I agree that appearing like an NA release was ruled out probably pushed people to download the game and now have no (strong) reason to purchase it. However, do I think that is any notable difference from the people who were going to download it regardless Nope.For me, I'll have to let you all know sometime in April if this game was worth my $$$ ;D Mop - good point regarding Fifa... would be interesting to find out the sources.Mop - lol... excellent observation regarding the Pirates game :P:
Almost agree with NinSage, but have one question: what do you consider \"notable\" numbersIf almost 950,000 copies were pirated, then turning a single percentage point of those illegal downloads into actual sales would translate into 9,500 copies of Xenoblade moving off of store shelves. That adds up pretty quickly for a game that starts out with low sales expectations... even though I doubt that more than a few percentage points (at best) would have considered buying the game anyway, no matter how easily available or at what cost.One thing that amazed me was how often Mario Sports Mix got pirated. Were people really interested in the game Was it downloaded for kids who probably don't appreciate their games enough to make it worth buying (At least that's the excuse that most parents I know who pirate give.) Is it just the Mario name making people grab a copy
If hard to find games that go for ridiculous prices online are the Wii games available for download on the Wii U, this is a great thing. Especially games like Metroid Prime Trilogy or The Last Story. (Take that you assholes trying to sell these games online for over 100 bucks! Ha ha!)
The 3DS and Wii U eShops have stellar classic offerings thanks to Virtual Console. Unlike Nintendo Switch Online, where users pay a monthly or annual fee for unlimited access to classic game libraries, the Wii U and 3DS ecosystems still allowed users to buy and download individual retro games. The 3DS eShop has dozens of Game Boy, Game Boy Color, NES, and SNES games, while Wii U owners can grab classics from the N64, Wii, Game Boy Advance, and DS systems. Here are some Virtual Console titles you should definitely consider before it's too late.
The most pirated Wii game was Super Mario Galaxy 2, with 1.28 million downloads. Mario Sports Mix (1.09 million downloads), Xenoblade Chronicles (950,000 downloads), Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (870,000 downloads) and FIFA 12 (860,000) rounded out the top five most pirated Wii games list.
Nintendo announced the digital re-release on Wednesday as part of a broader plan to offer downloadable versions of key Wii games on the Wii U. That begins now, with the release of Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the eShop, followed on January 22 with Punch-Out.
Announced via Nintendo Direct, these games will launch directly from the Wii U menu. Nintendo President Satoru Iwata noted that previous, Wii U's backwards compatibility required switching the hardware to Wii mode. Because of this, Iwata admitted, the Japanese game maker was unable to redistribute Wii software for download on Wii U.
\"Now that we can reproduce Wii disc software on Wii U, we can make these titles available to download,\" Iwata said. \"Some of the Wii games that were compatible with the Wii Classic Controller can be played using only the Wii U GamePad, too.\"
Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad - the same source who originally shared this information has now revealed the ability to download these games is currently in the process of being shut down. Although the games are \"still accessible\" if purchased, it's unclear how much longer server authentication will continue to work.
With Wii retail games now slowly making their way to the Wii U eShop for download, we kicked off a list of 20 games we hope to see make it to the store. In part one we listed our first 10, which included some likely releases and those that may have sketchier prospects. As the title suggests, however, they're all games that we hope will make it.
There you have it, 20 Wii games we'd love to see available for download on the Wii U eShop. Vote for your favourite three from our line-up in the poll below, and share your views in the comments - even if you want to tell us how wrong we are!
The three I want the most are The Last Story, Rhythm Heaven Fever, and Radiant Dawn. I love what I've played of Fever, but I don't actually own it, so I'd love to try the full game. I recently got into the Fire Emblem series, and being able to download the rarest game in the series for a low price would be very nice. As for The Last Story, Xenoblade has become my favorite game of all time, and I really want to try the other two Rainfall games at some point. 153554b96e
