Mario Galaxy 2 to get Super Guide?

Miyamoto's not sure - but it will be hard.

Asked by Official Nintendo magazine if Super Mario Galaxy 2 will use the Super Guide feature that makes its debut in this week's New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Shigeru Miyamoto said he "cannot tell".

But he indicated that the game would probably be difficult enough to warrant it. "Well, as far as the challenge of Super Mario Galaxy 2 is concerned, I think it's going to be a really challenging game, but whether or not we are going to incorporate the Super Guide, I just cannot tell," said the famous designer.

"In general, wherever and whenever appropriate, I think we will want to incorporate that kind of thing, but I cannot commit to anything specific right now."

In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the Super Guide appears as an option if a player is struggling on a particular level. When selected, it starts an automatic playthrough showing the player how to complete it. Players can jump in and take control at any point, or simply allow the Super Guide to finish the level for them.
