Nintendo has a special Christmas present for all Super Mario Galaxy fans; Super Mario Galaxy launches on Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow.

Nintendo has published the official product page for Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii U Virtual Console.

Now, this is the Wii version of Super Mario Galaxy, so you will need a Wii Remote and Nunchuck to play the game.

Super Mario Galaxy released in 2007 as the first 3D Mario title for the Wii console. The game garnered universal critical praise, and is often considered one of the best games of the seventh-generation of consoles. Galaxy follows Mario as he heads to the stars to rescue Princess Peach, who has been kidnapped by Bowser in his attempt to take over the galaxy. Mario teams up with Rosalina and the Lumas as he travels from planet to planet in his hunt for Peach. Make sure to check the Nintendo eShop tomorrow if you’re interested in Super Mario Galaxy.
