Super Mario Galaxy 2 dated for May

The on-going Nintendo Media Summit in San Francisco has brought news that Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be released quite a bit sooner than hoped; The North American release has been set for May 23.

Everything shown at the event today are part of Nintendo’s first and second quarter 2010 line-up. E3 2010 in June will be shedding light on what the company has planned for the rest of the year which, since it’s been confirmed to be at the event, we can only assume means the new Zelda will indeed arrive later this year.
