We've already had the news that a brand new Mario game is coming to the iPhone soon, and now the little Italian tradesman with a penchant for coins, mushrooms, and princesses (haven't we all) is getting his very own theme park.

Nintendo is teaming up with Universal to bring Mario to the real world in its Orlando, Japan, and Hollywood parks.

Nintendo's word reads: "Imagine the fun of stepping into a larger-than-life Nintendo adventure. Gigantic Piranha Plants spring to life. Question blocks, power-ups, and more surround you. And Mario and all his friends are there to pull you into a brand-new world.

You will enter an entire realm filled with iconic Nintendo excitement, gameplay, heroes and villains."

Nice.

As it stands there is no official opening date, but it's currently expected that the park will be completed in time for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

We just hope there's a Mario Kart track.
