At first glance, Super Mario Galaxy 2's box art looked exactly like I thought it would. Yoshi is thrust into the spotlight, the galaxy is comprised of small, oddly shaped planets, and the quest ahead will likely involve collecting stars. What I didn't expect to see was a creepy, dead-eyed Mario Chia Pet head. That thing gives me the shivers, and looks like it belongs on a Condemned cover. Try sleeping with that thing in your room.

Super Mario Galaxy will hit store shelves on May 23. For more information on the game, check out our hands-on preview, and an informative interview with Mario's creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
