Nintendo have sent us three of the latest Mario Sunshine screens, which show Mario carrying his water jet device, climbing a scramble net, and on the run from killer piranha plants.


Only scant details are known about the gameplay in Mario Sunshine, with Miyamoto keeping things secretive like only he does best.

However, the screens do give a hint towards the much talked about Sunshine Meter which appears to hint towards some form of darkness in the world, and that you'll have to either collect sunshine's or turn areas from the darkside in to being sunny before being rewarded with an illusive Sunshine.

Mario Sunshine has yet to have a release date set, although it seems likely that we'll see it later this year, on the Gamecube. As soon as we get to know more firm details about the gameplay or any new screens, we'll let you know.
