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. Exclusive to the Nintendo GameCube version are three playable Mario characters — Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach — collectively known in-game as the "Nintendo All-Stars." It also includes a Mario-themed basketball court, the Nintendo Court.

Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach were included as a result of a deal between EA and Nintendo allowing EA to include Nintendo properties in a few of their games. The three characters were also included in EA's SSX on Tour. This is the first game where the three Mario characters play basketball, predating the release of the Nintendo DS title Mario Hoops 3-on-3 by one year.

A port, titled NBA Street Showdown was released later in 2005 for the PlayStation Portable, which does not retain any Mario elements, just like the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions.
