Different costumes, different personalities.
LEGO and Nintendo’s LEGO Super Mario was officially revealed to the world earlier in March and promises an "interactive play experience" themed around one of the most famous gaming characters. The collection isn't completely a video game neither a regular building brick activity to set up on the floor of your room. Lego Super Mario is described as "a highly social, interactive, and collaborative experience for kids." Earlier today, the studio revealed new Lego Super Mario Power-Up packs, featuring new costumes for the character, but that's not everything they are.
The Power-Up packs give players new ways to interact with their sets, featuring four unique costumes for users to dress up Mario in; Fire Mario, Propeller Mario, Cat Mario, and Builder Mario. Each one of them brings with it distinctive sounds, facial expressions, chest panel icons, and even affects the digital iteration of Mario, giving him different coin-collecting abilities based on what he is wearing. They are all inspired by entries in the Mario gaming franchise, from Super Mario 3D World to Super Mario Maker. This might hint towards the possibility of seeing Nintendo announce more costumes between now and the August 1st release date of the Lego Super Mario sets.
For now, they aren't available for pre-order but will become available on August 1st for $10 per each Power-Up Pack. Make sure to check out the reveal video below for a preview of how these costumes will affect the way you interact with Mario and the world around him.
