Mario Galaxy 2 release date confirmed

Sequel out on May 23 in North America

Nintendo's just confirmed that Super Mario Galaxy 2 will release in North America on May 23.

Update: You can watch the US Media Summit trailer here. Update out.

The new comes from a US Media Summit, where the platform holder showed a new trailer featuring Yoshi and his Wii Remote tongue skills.

We're heading off to a similar event in London tomorrow, so expect lots more Galaxy goods in the coming day.

As we revealed yesterday Mario Galaxy 2 hands-ons are also on the agenda.
