|Super Mario Galaxy Wii U|
|Release Date(s)|| Autumn 2014|
The story begins in the Mushroom Kingdom, where Mario awakes to find the kingdom being attacking by none other than Bowser! Mario runs to the castle to try and save Princess Peach, but he is too late. He arrives to find Bowser flying away on his airship with Peach trapped in a secure pod. Mario then chases him through the Mushroom Kingdom, only for him to get away and fly up into the galaxy.
Mario then finds his faithful Toad Brigade that had helped him in many adventures. They swiftly build the Starshroom and fly up into the galaxy after Bowser. After landing on the first planet, Mario is reunited with Lubba, who is looking glumly at the ground. He claims that Bowser flew through the Comet Observatory, smashing it into pieces. He also took Rosalina, the Luma's and all the power that it had.
Mario then shows him the Grand Star that he had just obtained. Using the star, Lubba was able to reconstruct the basics of the Comet Observatory, however most observatories still needed more power to reconstruct. Lubba requests that Mario help him. Mario accepts and Lubba summons Planet Mario to help retrieve the first few Power Stars, so the Comet Observatory can set flight again, as well as the to allow more power to reconstruct the first observatory.

Galaxies and Missions
Main Article: Super Mario Galaxy Wii U/Galaxies and Missions
The Game contains 12 Worlds, which each originate from one of the Domes on the Comet Observatory, similar to the first game. The Domes include the Patio, the Conservatory, the Garage, the Fountain, the Study, the Kitchen, the Bedroom, the Sunroom, the Engine Room, the Garden and Planet Mario also.
Comets also return in this game. The Speedy, Purple, Daredevil, Cosmic and Fast Foe comets return from the original game, whilst the Green Comet returns from its sequel, however it is in a slightly different form. When a Green Comet appears, one of Mario's Friends goes to retrieve it instead of himself, whether this be Wario, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi, Rosalina, Toad Brigade Captain or in some cases Luigi.
Despite that, there is a new comet that has been introduced. The Powershot Comet is a new comet that prevents the use of the Star Spin during the level.
