Monster Hunter 3, Super Mario Stadium Baseball Announced for Wii

Mario will apparently be taking America's favorite pasttime beyond what was seen in Wii Sports, as Nintendo has announced Super Mario Stadium Baseball for Wii. No details, including whether the game is being developed or by another studio, are available. The plumber's last baseball outing, Mario Superstar Baseball on GameCube, was developed by Namco.

Also en route to Wii is Monster Hunter 3, the latest edition of Capcom's huge-in-Japan adventure series revolving around capturing and training monsters. Significantly, the game was originally announced only for PlayStation 3.

The news was released during Nintendo's Conference 2007 Fall, as reported by Japanese publication Gemaga and translated by IGN.
