Sonic and Mario team up again! This time, it isn’t the blue hedgehog we’re talking about. Sonic Drive-In has teamed up with Nintendo to release a Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam themed toy line. The toys will be hitting the fast food chain front lines beginning April 19th and ending on June 30th to celebrate the January release of the 3DS role-playing adventure.
Prepare to go fast to your nearest Sonic Drive-In for a Wacky Pack, the kid’s meal line that the American fast food chain specializes in. Featuring hot dogs, chicken strips, and assorted other treats, kids will receive one of many bright and colorful toys with their meals. Or you can just get one for yourself. No judgement.
A few of the toys are reminiscent of the paper bosses in the game while other toys feature mechanical parts that make them zip and glide across the room. Mario and Luigi aren’t the only good guys featured. A little paper Peach appears to be included in the lineup as well.
