The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon and Kirby have all received orchestrated concerts in recent years within Japan, but now Nintendo’s biggest mascot is finally getting the same treatment.

As announced by Famitsu, “Super Mario Orchestra Concert – Bowser is the Hero!?” will be heading to the Kyoto Cross-Media Experience festival this September, with three showings spread across the 15th and 16th. The title itself suggests Bowser might be playing a key role in the track list, but we’ll have to wait and hear for ourselves.
