Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed in his GDC 2007 keynote address that we'll be playing Mario Galaxy this year.
Following the announcement he showed an impressive trailer for the game. Attendees saw Mario zoom round spherical worlds, bounce between planets, explore a lava level and confront a plant monster.
He also revealed that we'd be seeing a new Mii Channel on Wii, which will let you compare other people's avatars and enter different contests.
It wasn't quite the headline grabbing address some were perhaps expecting, with reports of people with their heads in their hands as Miyamoto waffled on about the Wiimote and his wife's gaming preferences.
