Revealed at Nintendo's E3 press conference, Super Mario Galaxy is Nintendo's debut Wii outing for its moustachioed mascot and we can bring you the first few details about the game.
As the title suggests, Super Mario Galaxy takes place in space as Mario, with the normally hapless heroine Princess Peach in tow, heads off in pursuit of an escaped creature. On the interstellar adventure the pair will explore various planets and alien landscapes, and will encounter a variety of new and familiar enemies.
The game will take full advantage of the Wii controller's motion-sensing features and the dungaree-wearing hero will have a host of new moves - including some gravity defying jumps - executed by tilting, pointing and shaking the Wii-mote.
