The announcement came after the success of things like their Boo Mansion playset and It's-A Me Mario toy.
I just hope this means they're gonna make new toys of non-Mario games, because lately they've been pumping out almost exclusively Mario stuff. I want more Donkey Kong, Star Fox and Zelda characters.
In fact, why not a Super Smash Bros. toyline while they're at it?
Just thought I'd share this news for anyone besides me who's interested.
