Wow, I never imagined that so much stuff surrounding the release of New Super Mario Bros. Wii would surface in such a short time. But what better place to start than the intro, which shows how Peach gets snatched, as well as how the new power-ups get scattered across the land:

Fawful007 wins for the best comment regarding the video on GoNintendo: “Those are the ugliest strippers I’ve ever seen.”

In addition, there is now an official website, Shigeru Miyamoto has had a roundtable discussion with members of the press, there are seven new videos here, three more here, a look at the new Ice Flower, box art, Limited Tin Edition, and the Koopalings (and Bowser Jr.) here. Plus, there are new screenshots accessible from the bottom of each story listed here.

Also note that all of the Koopalings have new looks in some form or another, save Wendy O. You can find the full scrutiny here.

I am so stoked for this. I would have liked to hold off on seeing the intro until I had the game, but what are you going to do? At least it keeps the later parts of the game intact.
