Super Mario Galaxy 2 To Feature Nod To Super Mario Sunshine?

It may be one of the more polarizing entries in the Mario franchise, but a new video hints at Galaxy 2 areas that seem directly inspired by 2002's Super Mario Sunshine. It clearly shows a Pianta (the race of island-dwellers that Sunshine introduced), as well as a tropical environment reminiscent of parts of Isle Delfino.

The clip below only features about 15 seconds of actual gameplay, but keep an eye out for some fancy swinging action thanks to Yoshi's tongue. At least he's not vomiting fruit juice all over the place this time around. Poor fella must have seen a doctor about that condition sometime in the last eight years.

Keep your eyes peeled for a Super Mario Sunshine edition of Replay in the near future.
