Yesterday LEGO was teasing its next Nintendo tie-in, confirming it'd be a big ol' '?' Block. It's now been fully unveiled in the trailer above, and as you can see it unfolds for a Super Mario 64 theme; it looks set to release on 1st October.
It looks rather neat, but you'll need to save your pennies; the official listing shows us a price of £159.99 / $169.99.
It'll have various interactive elements, of course, and will utilise the previous starter set figures too; some official details are below.
- Includes 10 LEGO® Super Mario™ microfigures: Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach, and King Bob-omb, as well as a Chain Chomp, Big Bully, Mr. I, Lakitu, penguin and baby penguin.
- The ? Block measures over 7 in. (18cm) high, wide and deep, and opens to reveal 4 detailed Super Mario 64™ levels: Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain and Lethal Lava Trouble.
- For interactive play, add the LEGO® Mario™ or LEGO® Luigi™ figure from the 71360/71387 Starter Courses (sold separately) and collect 10 hidden Power Stars to reveal secret reactions and more.
- This collectible, 2,064-piece LEGO® building set makes a cool birthday present, holiday gift or surprise treat for fans of Super Mario 64™, gamers and lovers of all things retro.
As previously reported, the LEGO Super Mario series has been a huge success for the Danish company and Nintendo. While Mario is still the focus, loads of us dreaming about collaborations with other franchises - ahem, The Legend of Zelda, for example - can perhaps have a little optimism.
Let us know what you think of this '?' Block and its Super Mario 64 theme; are you planning to splash out on it?
