Gamers rejoice! Two new Super Mario Converse shoes will be hitting the market later this year. Earlier this year, Trend Hunter Summer Luu brought your attention to the first two pairs of Converse Super Mario Bros Chuck Taylors, and now two more will be released to celebrate Super Mario's 25th anniversary.

Instead of an all-over 8-bit print like the first two, these new Super Mario Converse shoes features scenes from the iconic games. One is a wraparound version of level 1-1 and the other an epic scene of Mario battling Bowser.

Unfortunately for many retro Nintendo lovers, the Super Mario Converse sneakers will only be available in Japan, just like the first two. They will hit the market in August 2011. Stats for Geeky Gaming Sneakers (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Warm
