Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii Comes with Bonus DVD

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii Comes with Bonus DVD on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has confirmed that Super Mario Galaxy 2 will come with a nifty bonus DVD to help players get to grips with Mario's sublime skills.

The DVD, which funilly enough won't be able to natively run on the Wii itself, contains a quick guide for beginners unfamiliar with the plumber's planet hopping antics, how to use the Wii Remote and nunchuck together, starbits and navigating between worlds etc.

Yeah, was gonna say, they can't just put that onto the game disc itself? Odd one from Nintendo, but yeah, it must have more things on the DVD than just that.

How pointless/patronising/'new age'...or whatever. Sodding Wii.

Trying to think of a witty signature after 'Hacker-gate'...

And won't run natively on the Wii?
That's a joke, I bought an Anime tie in "Dragon Drive" for the GameCube and that came with a mini DVD that ran on the GameCube! Why can't they get a disk to run on the wii?....

In the future we'll probably be saying to children, "In my day, we just worked out how to play games ourself."

Wait.... your meant to play this DVD on the Wii or its a disc that can be played on the Wii? As far as I know you cant play DVD's on the Wii... Smilie

Now that would be a BIG fail.

Naw, more like an unrealistically cheerful way of delivering cold harsh truths.

Like so:

Here's the cover... It's simply a collection of all the Cosmic Guide videos from what I gather. It is meant for kids.

Hi readers, I'm going to complain about a free, completely optional addition to what will be one of the best games ever made.

Oh wait, no I won't.

Geez you're such a buzz kill.

This is stupid because it doesn't even run on the console the game is for, potentially confusing the "kids" who want to use it.

Also it's killing the environment by being pointless because it doesn't contain anything not already on the game either.

It wasn't even complaints, just a bit of fun. Smilie

I bet 99% of kids will try it in their Wii and obv it won't work. How stupid Nintendo - your console is supposed to be the centre of the living room yet it cannot watch films or listen to music, something that's been readily available in other consoles for almost a decade. Appauling really.

So you have to connect up a DVD player just to watch this piece of crap? LAME + 10.

Is the US version coming with the DVD? I probably won't use it much, but it is nice to have extras.

Now, would anybody like to hear an interesting story about a bridge?

(That's a Family Guy quote before anybody gives me a weird look)

Why can't this be included in the manual?
I'd hope this DVD would contain maybe commentaries, or a selection of music tracks, just to make its existence slightly worthwhile. When I saw the headline I got slightly excited that Nintendo could actually be giving us some bonus, unrequested content.

Add me on anything. I'm always looking for new friends/opponents/town visitors/chances to appear more popular than I actually am.

Actually, if you have MPlayer or WiiMC installed, this DVD does natively play in the Wii.
