Designers from both companies join forces to create a new physical play experience that brings Super Mario to life in the world of LEGO® bricks, launching later this year.

The LEGO Group announced a partnership with Nintendo that will change the way people interact with Super Mario in the physical world and engage in LEGO® experiences.

Both companies share a passion for innovation and play and their collaboration has led to a reimagination of the LEGO building experience, enabling an entirely new way to play inspired by the beloved video game icon, Super Mario.

Neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick-based set, LEGO® Super Mario™ is a new product line that features an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects coins in real-life game levels created with LEGO bricks. The new line will let kids experience the playful world of Super Mario like never before. Super Mario will be brought to life in the physical LEGO world and new levels of challenge and styles of play will be part of the iconic LEGO experience enjoyed by generations.

This is awful.
If this is a Lego Mario game then they can't just take my wallet or my money, they can take my whole bank account! 🏦 💵

I dropped a brick on my foot today. My friend told me to LEGO.
Bit early for April Fools isn't it?
Would be Interested but only if they it was part of the creator expert or brickheadz series. Even better if licensing was from super Mario 3 and Yoshi island.
This is awful.

I wouldn’t say it’s awful. It may not appeal to you, and you may be disappointed it’s not sets, but it looks pretty cool.

Also it’s not necessarily all we’re getting.

Its the beginning of the end.
Brilliant! I nearly wish I was a kid again
Only just seen the vid on Facebook about this, and have to admit it looks awesome. My 7 yr old is mad on mario and even me at 29 would enjoy it. I can see why it wouldn’t be for everyone, but great for kids setting up their own levels. Shame it’s “being released later in the year” 😔

Errrr. That looks, umm, interesting...
Interested to see how these figures will work with their Bluetooth abilities.

Does Switch use Bluetooth? If so imagine if you could build your own LEGO controller and use it with your Switch
Take my money :-)
Looks rubbish I'd rather play the games but then again I'm not 7.
The technology and the Mario figures look really neat...

I just wish the set was better, it's duplo levels of complexity. All the potential builds you could have for castles, mushrooms, karts....
I wanna see Bowser, then they can take my money. Looking forward to the new Super Mario animated film and presumably now some cameos in a future Lego Movie 3! No Bob Hoskins in sight!
