Nikkei Net reports that Nintendo plans to release a new Mario game in the second half of the year. (Thanks for the tip Ishaan!!) No specifics were mentioned. Should we get excited?
Maybe. The report may have been referring to Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games which stars Mario and will be published by Nintendo in Japan. It could be a Mario RPG, a new Paper Mario game or Mario anything.
The Nikkei also mentions a sequel to Wii Fit has to be Wii Fit Plus. The follow up includes online support so you can compare your physical prowess with friends and is scheduled to ship this fall.
