It’s A Me Luigi, I’m A Playable In Super Mario Galaxy 2

By Spencer . May 5, 2010 . 5:00pm

Luigi started last generation off with his own spin-off, Luigi’s Mansion. That didn’t really pan out so Nintendo brought Luigi back for the Super Mario Galaxy series. This time he has more than a cameo.


You can play as Luigi in Super Mario Galaxy 2. He appears to have all of Mario’s abilities and suits, in other words he can ride blimp Yoshi and bowl through enemies as Rock Luigi as demonstrated in this video. We’re not sure how or if Luigi is different from his portly brother.


Super Mario Galaxy 2 lands in North America first on May 23.

    Would be great if he’s playable from the start.

    But Luigi in SMG wasn’t only a Cameo. It was playable in the replay, with harder stages requirements.

    I always thought he was the talented one in the family.

    Did you ever play as Luigi in Galaxy 1? He had a faster running speed and slightly higher jump than Mario, but turned slower/wider and was a bit tougher to control.

    • I saved Luigi, but I guess I missed playing as him. *teardrop* After I beat Mario Galaxy I moved on without collecting all of the stars.

    Hm, what I find interesting is the Fire Flower. Is it just me or does it seem like the duration you can keep the power is either made longer or is it perhaps indefinate? Or is it just wishful thinking on my part?
