Squenix signs up Mario

For new Nintendo DS game.

Square Enix has announced that it's currently working on a new Itadaki Street game for the Nintendo DS.

For those who aren't familiar, Itadaki Street is a board game-based series that's big in Japan. It revolves around opening up shops and charging other players rent when they occupy your areas on the board.

Back in February, you may recall, Squenix revealed that a PSP version is on the way, and that it'll star playable characters from Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest.

Itadaki Street DS will also feature DQ characters, but the game's true star will be our old friend Mario. He'll be joined by a host of other familiar faces from the Super Mario Bros. series, including Slime.

Little else is known about the game so far, other than the fact you'll be able to play online via Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connect service.

There's no telling whether the Itadaki Street DS will make it to Europe - but with Mario's big fat face making an appearance, you never know...
