Nintendo has teamed up with toy maker Mattel to create six Super Mario-themed Hot Wheels cars. Each design was inspired by six different Mario classics: Super Mario World, Super Mario Bros., Dr. Mario, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3. Some of the toy cars even have the Super Mario Bros. 30th anniversary logo emblazoned on them. Look for them on store shelves this October.
