Mario Party 9!!
You know, if they release MP9 in 2010 there would have been 3 years between MP8 and MP9. Maybe the new MP could be something like a decent game this time around.

God, who am I kidding. That series is just getting worse and worse. And, ironically, judging by the sales of MP8 more successful at the same time.

What about that "Super Mario Museum" we heard about around E3 Time?

Even if it's just a collection of older titles, maybe they'd want to have his voice for something relating to that.

This is complete non-news, there's always going to be at least one spinoff Mario title in development at any given time.

EAD Tokyo is working on another game in addition to SMG 2. My guess it's the long-awaited Mario vs. Sonic platformer.
This would be DAY 1, if true. :D

You beat him at E3! Holla at him, and see if you can get any dirt! :lol

As an impartial observer, I fully expect the next Mario Party to be a big deal for Nintendo.

It was a 1-2 million seller for them for years. By game standards, that's very respectable for a single platform franchise, but puts it in the lower-middle area for Nintendo.

Then, Mario Party 8 sold ~6 million. To put that in perspective, that's better than any game Sony has produced this generation by a wide margin, and second only to Halo from Microsoft (yes, it's better than Gears).

I think Nintendo has re-evaluated this franchise, and upgraded it from "low-mid level franchise to be exploited every year" to "major franchise we need to be careful with."

Interesting hypothesis. Certainly would explain the absence of another iteration.

Wikipedia says they have 59 employers
Perhaps they recently gained a bunch of people, because I'm pulling my numbers directly from their site (which is updated regularly)...If they have that many that's great...

I'd definitely like a new Mario Party game that's actually really well made for once. No reason it can't sell like MK Wii if it's done right.

Another Mario game? Oh boy, I never expected that!

Seriously, though, this is pretty great. Don't they usually not start recording lines until late in production? This may not be too far off...

Due to the Success of Mario Kart Wii, i'm actually expecting them to throw out another one to boost Wii sales April time.
Ye, i also thought about a new Mario Kart game when i read that it wasnt New Super Mario Bros or Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Speaking of Super Mario Galaxy 2, when is it going to be released?
