Mustachioed plumber Mario will return to play a part in the latest offering for Nintendo's GameCube, the company has confirmed.
Super Mario Sunshine will be released on 26 August and is set to be a big hit following the historic success of Mario and his brother, Luigi.
The Mario brand has been in existence for 21 years since he featured in a walk-on role in the 1980s hit Donkey Kong, before going solo with Luigi in Super Mario Brothers.
Since then, Nintendo says that 155 million Mario units have been moved, accounting for some $7bn in revenue.
GameCube launched in November and the Mario brand will be an important pull in fighting off Sony's PlayStation 2 and Microsoft's Xbox.
