The Lego Group has revealed something truly brickshattering: more Lego Super Mario's. Originally revealed in March with the LEGO Super Mario range, LEGO fans can now buy Expansion Sets, Character Packs and Power-Up Packs (which were originally shown off in May).
The products announced today will let people build Mario's house (where he presumably lives when he isn't saving the world for the 11024th time), look for treasure hidden by the sneaky Toad, and defeat a Koopa Troopa in a Guarded Fortress.
There are also 10 Mario enemy characters that can be collected, in blind pick Character Packs that include a "Paragoomba, Fuzzy, Spiny, Buzzy Beetle, Bullet Bill, Bob-omb, Eep Cheep, Blooper, Urchin or Peepa!" There's even a quote below about how excited LEGO and Nintendo are to sell you their stuff, so check it out:
“The reaction to LEGO Super Mario has been incredible,” said Jonathan Bennink, Digital Design Lead on LEGO Super Mario, the LEGO Group. “Super Mario is such an icon – and fans have been highly anticipating the release of the full details of the product line. Our entire range – from the Starter Course to the Power Up Packs, through to the Expansion Sets and Character Packs – have been built to bring Super Mario, his friends – and his enemies – to life. We love how creative Nintendo and LEGO fans are, and can’t wait for them to unleash their imaginations in how they interact with Super Mario in the real world.”
Every Expansion Set (with the Thwomp Drop Expansion Set ($39.99) and King Boo and the Haunted Yard Expansion Set ($49.99) available only at select retailers) and collectible Character can be used on the Adventures with Mario Starter course, which is pretty cool of them to do. Another cool thing is a LEGO Super Mario app that the Lego Group has created, which will allow players to keep track of scores to "encourage continuous rebuilding" along with a bunch of other cool things like including building instructions.
All of the new LEGO Super Mario discussed in the article and shown here will be released August 1, 2020. You can also preorder it on the official LEGO website or wherever you go and buy LEGOs.
