Luigi in Mario Galaxy 2? Official Japanese site says yes

With just 30 days separating us and the release of Super Mario Galaxy 2, we are jumping at any new info we can dig up, whether it’s Cloud Mario or the appearance of a new co-op character. Now the official Japanese site for Galaxy 2 just revealed a whole new bombshell: Luigi will be in the sequel to the greatest Wii game ever.

Anyway, as far as we could tell Luigi’s role in 2 seems pretty similar to the original. Apparently in the above image Luigi is talking about how he can help Mario find a star just like he did in the first game. Also on the site is a blurb seemingly mentioning how Luigi plays a bit more slippery than his brother, again following the lead of the sequel.

We suppose we didn’t not expect to see Luigi in SMG2, the thought never really crossed our minds until the Japanese site brought it up. Here’s hoping that it isn’t the insane pain to unlock him as it was last time. And if you’re craving more info on the green one, check our unauthorized biography, Luigi: A Life in Shadows.

    Guess what? The english website came up today and all it has it one video and it points out the obvious. It says "Yoshi is all new and he eats stuff and Mario rides him" and "Get comet coins and you get new levels" and other obvious stuff. And the one video is a way worse quality than here.

    ARG! Why does Japan get everything before us! I know the head of Nintenedo is Japanese, but they shouldn't get special treatment! I want to be able to read the freakin website! I have this thing where I always research as much as I can about a game before it comes out so I know everything, but there's already a website in japanese AND I WANT TO READ IT!
