LEGO isn’t just for kids anymore, and it is evident in the way the company never fails to deliver on small-scale brick models developed from iconic scenes in popular television shows and movies such as Stranger Things, Star Wars, and Harry Potter.
Now, the brick experts have joined forces with Japanese game giant Nintendo to create a new physical play experience in an all-new product line that is neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick set.
LEGO Super Mario will feature an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects coins in real-life game levels that are created with LEGO bricks. No more hogging or waiting for the controller because now everyone can play at the same time.
Here’s a look at the game set.
For those curious about the gameplay, check out the teaser video below.
