    Nintendo of America brought news to its official Twitter page today in which they will be releasing their highly anticipated Super Mario Hot Wheels later this month to retail stores. In celebration of Mario's 30th Anniversary, these six iconic Mattel toy cars each sport a theme from popular Mario games and spin-offs with a vibrant colourful design painted on various types of vehicles.
    While a price for these toy cars have yet to be released, Mattel's famous Hot Wheels typically start at a price of $2.99 US for an individual car.

    I like that Nintendo is promoting its brand in different ways, but these cars have nothing to do with Mario.

    I wish they had actually released a gokart, or an airship akin to the star wars hot wheels x-wing.

    I like that the cars embrace the art styles of different games, instead of trying to use a homogenized "modern" Mario look.

    Now put this shit in some cereal boxes as free toys.

    The classic boxarts being used for packaging is awesome. If I happened across these in a store, I'd definitely pick them up.

    I don't know if I want to see another mario tv show and movie, the last one were so bad. They could be done well this time, but I'm scared they would be just as bad.
