We might have seen Super Mario themed Hot Wheels racers in the past, but Mattel’s latest collaboration with Nintendo takes it to the next level. According to Comicbook.com, the toy manufacturer is releasing a new line of Hot Wheels cars based on Nintendo’s long-running racer, Mario Kart.

The series will feature eight characters in total, with each one sporting their own full-functioning custom vehicle. Unfortunately, though, the line-up won’t race into stores until next June.

Anyone lucky enough to be heading to San Diego’s Comic-Con this weekend will be able to see the vehicles in the flesh at the Nintendo booth and the Mattel booth. When these karts eventually do arrive instore, each one will cost you $5.00. This latest Mario Kart news follows the recent announcement that more content was on the way to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
