Spotted early last month, Nintendo UK have confirmed that they have teamed up with McDonald’s for a “Run, Jump and Power-Up with Super Mario” promotion.

This will see classic characters appear within the fast food giant’s Happy Meals from March 19th, with Mario, Luigi, Toad, Donkey Kong and Super Mushroom to be among those available. Interactive toys also join such toy line-up, with Mario’s Hovering Coin, Donkey Kong Barrel Projector, a Super Sound Mushroom and Mario’s Warp Pipe Embosser.

More importantly, such promotion seeks to inspire children to lead more active lifestyles, which will be supported by McDonald’s advertising that will appear in restaurants across the UK and run until April 29th.
