It's time for a, slightly belated, E3 wrap up.

Here is a list of the new Mario games shown at this year's show.

Gamecube

Mario Baseball
Release Date: August 29, 2005

Continuing the tradition started by such games as Mario Power Tennis and Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Mario Baseball brings a new brand of fun to the world of baseball! Mario Baseball's intuitive hitting system, easy-to-learn fielding and pitching controls and wild, character-specific power moves go together like peanuts and bleacher seats. Mario Baseball delivers a terrific arcade-like experience that will appeal to baseball novices and hardcore fans alike.

Players can try their hands at Challenge Mode, where they must wander the land clearing baseball-related trials. Or they can sit down for a game in the Toy Field, where they hit balls at circles in the outfield to earn coins and other prizes. With more than 50 characters from the Mario universe, multiplayer options for up to four players, character-specific power moves and crazy mini-games, Mario Baseball is sure to be your new favorite pastime!

Super Mario Strikers
Release Date: TBD

Nintendo's foray into sports titles continues with Super Mario Strikers, a new soccer game that's unlike anything ever to hit the pitch. Whether players are freezing their opponents with an ice-cold shell, unleashing a spiny shell on their hapless opponents or making entire teams flee in terror with a roving Chain Chomp, they're sure to see something new around every corner kick.

Super Mario Strikers features all the favorite characters from the Nintendo universe, as well as four-person multiplayer action that will have players and their friends cheering all night long. Get ready for the world cup of gaming.

SK's Thoughts (On both Mario Baseball and Super Mario Strikers): I like them, but it seems Nintendo is making more Mario sports games than adventure games. I want some Goomba bashing!

Mario Party 7
Release Date: November 2005

The entire Mario gang is back for the seventh installment of the incredibly popular Mario Party franchise. Players everywhere will set their controllers to fun as they run, jump, swim and fly through more than 80 new minigames. But this party's about to get a lot bigger ... because EIGHT people will now be able to battle each other at one time.

The microphone peripheral from Mario Party 6 also makes a grand return “ and with the new Mic Grand Prix mode, there will be plenty of voice-over madness for everyone. The addition of two new playable characters, Dry Bones and Birdo, will ensure that even seasoned Mario Party vets can experience a new world of wackiness.

SK's Thoughts: The Mario Party series is another Mario Spin-Off that I could do with less of. I haven't played since Mario Party 3.

Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix
Release Date: October 2005

Boogie down with Mario in his own dance party!

Players shake their things to more than 25 dance-flavored songs, from classic Nintendo themes to familiar favorites. With five difficulty levels, dancers of all abilities will be able to get into the groove.

Have fun getting in shape! The special Workout feature tracks the calories burned while playing.

Storyline

Someone has stolen the Music Keys and released the music they held. Without the Music Keys, the unstable power of the music is wreaking havoc on the land. Mario must recover them before the chaos destroys the entire Mushroom Kingdom! The path to the keys is simple: Left, Right, Up, Down, Right, Down ...

Characters

Mario, Luigi, Toad, Waluigi, Wario, Bowser

How to Progress through the Game

In Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, players clear levels by performing the correct steps. Once they clear all the levels in a particular world, they'll collect a Music Key. Collect all the Music Keys to win.

Special Features

Players control Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix by stepping on different arrows on the Action Pad (included with game). Players can finally experience the thrill of stomping Goombas and other enemies firsthand. As players clear songs, they will unlock more songs, minigames and difficulty levels.

Screenshots:







SK's Thoughts: I never was that big a fan of DDR. And having Mario's face on the game isn't going to change that.

Well, that's the Gamecube games. I'll post again tommorow with the GBA and DS games.
