Mario makes new cameo appearance

What game will he star in?

Mario has perhaps made more cameo appearances than any other games character and now the plumber is set to appear in another game: Taiko Drum Master Wii 3.

The Japanese drumming game will feature the New Super Mario Bros. Wii music and when you're playing along, Mario will turn up on screen alongside the likes of Luigi, Toad and the Koopa Kids.

The game features 70 tunes including music from Ridge Racer Type 4 and Pokémon Diamond & Pearl.

This is just one of many classic Mario cameo appearances. Here are Mario's greatest cameo appearances.

    Too slow, guys!

    There was already a Super Mario medley in the first Taiko Drum Master on the DS.

    EDIT- It seems you already covered it in the other cameo article. Never mind.

    Also, there sure as hell better be an English release. I don't care when, but it better happen.

    I'd actually like to see this game released over here but I doubt that will happen. Curse you, Japan!

    The game looks really fun reminds me of Samba De Amigo.
    Japan bring it over here.
    Great cameo it would be nice if Mario made a cameo in Epic Mickey.

    Somehow I think this article is unfair.

    "hey guys, look how cool this is!"

    We won't get it, will we?

    Usual. Tch.

    Should this really warrant a mention. It is likely that the UK will ever see this game, and it is just mario making a cameo...nothing special ¬_¬
