More Mario in 2009? Yes please!

The E3 rumour-mill is in full swing now and one of the more interesting bits of speculation is related to an all-new Mario adventure on the Wii.

Japanese news service Nikkei has reported that everyone's favourite Italian plumber will be returning to the Wii before the year is out. The report also claims that a new version of Wii Fit is on the way which promises online fitness battles with other users and "gentle exercises" for the elderly. Sounds like a hoot!

We'll be bringing you more E3-related goodness as the news starts to break. Keep those eyes peeled.
