Nintendo are due to start showing off their E3 offerings on Tuesday 10th June at 9am Pacific Time (5pm in the UK). Ahead of the show a recently leaked picture is giving a hint that a new title called Mario Maker may well be on the cards.

Its unclear whether the game will be for Wii U or 3DS and it may well be that the Mario Maker poster is a hoax but the prospect of a Mario level building game is one that has enough gamers hoping that the game is for real.

All will be revealed on Tuesday 10th June. What do make of the rumours?
