Lego is expanding its line of Super Mario-themed line with seven new sets coming in January 2021, Nintendo and The Lego Group announced Tuesday.
The Lego Super Mario line was announced in March and launched in August. It features an electronic Super Mario that reacts to different bricks. When combined, the different playsets allow kids and adults alike to recreate their favorite levels, while a smartphone app keeps track of the points and provides building instructions. While the original line included four biomes (water, fire, sand, and grass), this new line adds the Soda Jungle, representing poison with its purple hue.
Seven new sets in all were announced on Tuesday. The centerpiece is called the Master Your Adventure Maker Set, which Lego describes as a “creative toolbox.”
“Using the Customization Machine included in the Maker Set,” Lego continued, “children can change how Lego Mario reacts to three Special Bricks, offering variety in play, excitement and an element of surprise. The Maker Set also introduces a new special Start Pipe that will shuffle the known rules of the level play, in that players are challenged to reach the Goal Pole in less time, yet with increased rewards up for grabs. The Maker Set comes with 366 pieces, all selected to ensure that children can unleash their creativity and customize their own levels for themselves or other players.”
