Luigi is leaping into a new wave of LEGO Super Mario sets that will include a two player mode.
When the unique Super Mario theme was introduced last year, it was built around the interactive Mario figure. The electronic character can be moved through LEGO environments and earn coins, just like Mario does in Nintendo’s video games.
In this year’s summer wave of sets he’ll be joined by Luigi, with an all-new electronic figure featuring unique sounds, reactions and animation. The character comes in 71387 Adventures with Luigi Starter Course – but there’s also a whole bunch of new sets coming.
Each of these new sets includes special functions that encourage co-operative play, so if you use Mario and Luigi in tandem, the pair will earn additional coins towards their goal. There’s also the option for competitive play to see who can score more coins.
We’ll be reviewing new Mario sets in an upcoming issue of the LEGO magazine for fans! To get Blocks every month – at a discount and earlier than the shops – order a 12-month or 24-month subscription. Direct debit payment options are available too; to find out more get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘For us it’s all about encouraging continuous creative rebuilding and extended playtime. With today’s announcement, we’re not only bringing LEGO Mario and LEGO Luigi, their friends and enemies to life in new interactive ways for endless fun, we’re also thrilled to expand their play experience and the LEGO Super Mario universe with even more new sets and characters, something we really hope will excite fans,’ says LEGO Super Mario Creative Lead Simon Kent.
All of the sets will be available on August 1 – some are available to pre-order now – and Luigi can be used in all existing Super Mario sets.
