Mario is no stranger to multimedia. The plumber has had television shows and a live-action film. And just this year, there were rumblings an animated movie is being made with the mustachioed hero. Now, recent rumors suggest the feature will be based on the beloved Super Mario Adventures comic from Nintendo Power magazine.

Not much to go on, but an exciting prospect for gamers familiar with the source material.

The comic contains beloved characters like Yoshi, Kamek, and, uh, Friendly Floyd – an interpreter who speaks the Yoshi language.
