Mario to star in SSX

It's official, say Ninty and EA.

Nintendo and Electronic Arts have confirmed that the Gamecube version of SSX On Tour will star our old chums Mario, Luigi and Peach.

It won't be the first time they've appeared in an EA title, of course - as you'll know if you played NBA Street V3. According to Nintendo bigwig Reggie Fils-Aime, "When EA put a basketball in Mario's hand, he did quite well.

"Now Mario and crew are hitting the slopes thanks to a successful and creative partnership between Nintendo and EA.

"Mario has travelled in snow before, but never this fast. Let's hope his moustache doesn't freeze," he added hilariously.

SSX On Tour is due out on PS2, PSP, Gamecube and Xbox later this year.
