The partnership comes just in time for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s launch on April 28.

Happy Meals just got a little bit happier, as McDonald’s and Nintendo have recently partnered to bring your favorite video game characters to the iconic kids’ meal.

For a limited time, you can collect eight Nintendo toys, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Invincible Mario, a Red Koopa Shell, and the classic 1-Up Mushroom, according to the press release. Nintendo says that each of the toys has a “special function,” such as translucent Mario’s ability to light up in different colors.

“Nintendo is always looking for ways to expand its brand, and a partnership with the family-friendly McDonald’s restaurants felt like a great fit,” Doug Bowser, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Nintendo of America, said in a statement. “Like Mario, Happy Meals are something both kids and parents grew up with.”
