Everyone's favorite second-rate princess saver, Luigi, will be playable in Super Mario Galaxy 2, a major selling point for the Wii owner who detests blue overalls worn with red.

Luigi, it appears, can do everything his brother Mario can do, whether that involves strapping on the Bee Suit again, riding Yoshi or wearing that new Cloud Suit. He just does it without the recognition of his more famous brother and with a leaned back running style.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 makes its way to the Wii on May 23 in North America, then to Europe and Australia the second week of June.
