Super Mario Galaxy showed us something that had never been seen in the series and hasn’t happened since

Super Mario Galaxy celebrates its 15th anniversary today, November 12, 2022. Below, we take a look at how its unique setting gave it a special sense of wonder that sets it apart from other Mario games.

Mario Galaxy offers a sad vision of the stars, far from the surreal Saturday morning of the other games in the series. Of course, it’s not like its predecessors and followers don’t have their own unique charm – consider the Rising Sun Soak or the Odyssey Tour. However, Galactic presents a joyful existential sadness. It blasts Mario’s levels scale out of kingdoms and history, in (meta) physical. Galactic focuses on the cosmic interconnection between life and death, and the scattered unconscious possibility of rebirth.
