    The man talked to a Jap radio station, which got translated into french;
    http://salon.p-nintendo.com/news/N-1064063874.html , which got translated into english by CVG

    On Mario and Revolution:

    Mario is and always has been a concept title from his birth. We are always looking for new ways of playing with him, manipulating him, to create something new and unique. We're in the midst of preparing something special for his future, something never before seen. You'll understand when you see it that we can't quite release it right away. The new Mario game will surprise many people. Give us the benefit of the doubt. I think we'll present you with a new way to have fun. There's even a new character by his side

    We based the Revolution around this new type of game. Mario 128 played a large role in the Revolution's conception, much like Mario 64 in it's time. But we won't just be focusing on Mario. We're working on some very impressive games which push interactivity to the max - games of a new era

    On Zelda:

    This will be, without a doubt, the last Zelda game as you know it in its present form. I worked on it personally, more so than Wind Waker! I haven't invested as much into any game as I have this one. Our goal was to make the best Zelda game ever - the most rich, satisfying and melancholy. We've really improved it in just a few months. Everything's coming together much quicker. We may have some last minute ideas..

    These are translated answers the man gave to the station. I chose not to copy CVGs comments

    Basically nothing new. I just thought the Nintendo forum was looking static due to focus on PSP and next gen

    Hopefully Nintendo will be less corporate in the next gen in their exploitation of the mario franchise. No doubt we will be seeing mario party, mario paint, paper mario, mario and luigi, mario kart, mario tennis, mario golf et al though :rolleyes:

    But they seem to make better sports games than the simulations! More fun than a game of Virtua Tennis.

    If the N64 had Mario 64 then shouldnt the Cube have Mario 128?
    Revolution being the next gen system would be 256bit right?.

    However these numbers dont really make any sense since PC's are only now entering 64bit computing, I dont see how any console could be better than the latest PC hardware.

    Maybe the future games will actually be about Zelda rather than Link. :)
