Luigi playable in Mario Galaxy 2

New video shows other brother.

Nintendo has confirmed that Mario's brother Luigi will be a playable character in the upcoming Super Mario Galaxy 2.

A new video shows the green-clad plumber deciding to "look for Power Stars, too", along with his brother.

In the video, Luigi performs many of the same feats shown off by Mario in previous trailers, including the donning of a bee suit and a transformation into a rolling boulder. Intriguingly, the end of the new trailer shows Luigi throwing fireballs to break open a giant-sized ice sculpture of Bowser.

Luigi was previously rumoured to be a part of Super Mario Galaxy 2 when he showed up talking to Mario in a screenshot on the official Japanese web site for the game.
