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 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 Mario characters.

Playable characters[edit]

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