When Childhoods Collide: Super Mario Hot Wheels

As we’ve seen over recent months, Nintendo has increased their efforts at brand collaboration with other companies, to increase exposure of their IPs. We’ve seen a number of new initiatives announced recently, like the partnership with the social media giant Facebook—but what about, you know, older companies that skew toward the younger set?

Not to worry, friends—according to the Brazilian site T-Hunted, Nintendo will partner with Mattel to release six Super Mario themed Hot Wheels cars! Want to see the list?

  • 8 Crate Delivery ( Mario)
  • A-OK (Mario Kart)
  • Cool-One (Super Mario Bros. 2)
  • Dairy Delivery (Super Mario Bros.)
  • School Busted (Super Mario 3)
  • Volkswagen T1 Panel Bus (Super Mario World)

As you can see from the description, four of the cars are Super Mario Bros 30th Anniversary vehicles, with the other two based on Dr. Mario and Super Mario Kart.

According to the site, the cars will be available in October, but there’s been no official press from Nintendo on it so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
