Super Mario Galaxy 2 Daredevil Mode is a difficulty hack for Super Mario Galaxy 2 that forces you to beat the game under Daredevil conditions. It can be played legally on any homebrew-enabled Wii or Wii U console. No backup images or hardware modifications are required! I'd like to thank SY24 for creating the fantastic and epic logo. HEYimHeroic also patched the font graphics which was neccessary to support the Japanese version. In order to unlock the 242nd star you do not have to collect 9999 star bits anymore!

There's also a version for Super Mario Galaxy which can be found here.


  • Only one health point!
  • No more Checkpoints, Shops or Cosmic Spirits!
  • Replaced all existing Daredevil comets
  • Supports all three major versions
    (American, European and Japanese)
