In a sit down with IGN, Nintendo boss Reggie Fils-Aime has said Mario Galaxy 2 is more geared toward the hardcore gamer than the first game.

“What Mr. Miyamoto has shared is that if the first Galaxy was maybe more inviting in terms of all the audiences, what Galaxy 2 is going to be is maybe a little more Nintendo fan / harder gamer focused. A little tougher,” said Reggie.

“The use of Yoshi makes it a little more challenging. We showed some of the snippets of some of the activities — it’s a bit more challenging.

“It’s going to be, if you will, for more of that passionate Mario fan who grew up getting challenged with Super Mario World. It’s going to be much more in that area.”

Sounds good to us.
