Super Mario Galaxy: Two Player Co-Op Revealed
Eager for information on any and all things Mario Wii related, fans of the series (surely everyone with a real heart) will be pleased to hear that two player co-operative mode will be included in the upcoming Galaxy.

Nintendo has confirmed this in the past few days, though has not outlined exactly what lies in store. However, what we do know is that one player will use a standard WiiMote, the other a WiiMote and Nunchuck and both will play at the same time.

Of course, this news sparked the beautifully predictable yearnings of Nintendo fans for a co-op game featuring Luigi, Yoshi, perhaps even Toad... Again, we just don't know at time of press. We can report that the theme of saving Princess Peach (or Toadstool, depending on how pretentious you are) remains very much intact.

What kind of co-op would you be hoping for? Let us know and we'll pass on your thoughts to Nintendo. We can do that you know. Because we're amazing.

I wonder if we'll see something with that strange multiplayer viewing patent they filed a while back. If they were ever going to use that -whatever the hell it was-, it would be with this game, i'd imagine.

my first assumption woudl be that you coudl split up what people where already doign single player into two.

Haveing one person runnign aroudn and havign another usign the wiimote to knock enemaies and pull back the wrid rubber plant things to fling mario.
Even if both peopel ahev wands it would still be cool to have the extra assistance.

How about co-op where each player gets to play there own character as one mode and perhaps another mode where one player controls Yoshi while the other controls Mario and Mario can obviously ride Yoshi but still perform various functions? Each player being able to play seperate would still be nice though, being stuck togehter in a Mario-kart way the entire game would be limiting.

I think that instead of player 2 being a dot on the screen that he/she should be an actual character. I would love it if there was a super mario galaxy 2 !! The first was a great hit so imagine what the second would be like!

Mario and Luigi should be included two player coop no doubt. Fans like me would surely enjoy that and it would be new and exciting.

Seriously, I was really hoping that I would be able to sit down with a friend, both of us with Wiimotes and Nunchucks, controlling Mario and Luigi. The Single Player was fun as it was in the first one, but during gameplay I was always thinking how it would be to have Luigi platforming with me. It would be awesome.
