Cloud Mario? New power-up revealed in latest batch of Mario Galaxy 2 screens

Super Mario Galaxy 2 information has exploded all over the internet in the last 24 hours. First there was anupdate to the Japanese Galaxy 2 site with lots of new videos and info on a “Baby Chico”, who may be your sidekick in a new multiplayer mode. Now Nintendo of America has their own news, premiering some screens and character art, including a never before seen cloud-based power-up, which we feel safe in assuming turns the Italian American into Cloud Mario.

Sadly that image is all we have to go on, but it looks like Mario won’t have to steal clouds from Lakitus anymore, instead taking big strides on the cumulonimbus all by himself. Though we aren’t sure how we feel about that hat, collarand MC Hammer-ish trousers. Anyway, here’s a taste of some of the new screens that were released.
