NBA Street V3 is a basketball video game developed by EA Canada, published by EA Sports Big, and certified by THX in 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 and the third game in EA's NBA Street series.

The GameCube version features Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach as playable characters, collectively known in-game as the "Nintendo All-Stars". This is in response to a deal between EA and Nintendo in which EA would include Nintendo characters and properties in a few of their games; another game to take advantage of this was SSX Tour. A basketball court based on the Super Mario franchise, named the Nintendo Court, is also featured in the GameCube version.

A port, titled NBA Street Showdown was released later in 2005 for the PlayStation Portable, but does not feature Super Mario characters.

Playable charactersEdit

On top of the following playable characters, the game has a custom character creation mode.
