Konami has revealed that the next entry in its Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball series will feature Super Mario-themed content.

Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball Heroes - which hits the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on December 15th - will allow players to dress up the famous Power Pro Kun as Mario. As well as being a dead ringer for the famous Italian plumber, Pro Kun gets the special "Fire Ball" throw and "Fire Shot" swing, as well as that iconic Super Mario theme.

If you have a Japanese 3DS then you can check out the game's demo on November 30th.
