The LEGO Group has announced the LEGO Super Mario 64 “? Block.” Arriving twenty-five years on from the initial launch of the iconic Super Mario 64 video game, the “? Block” set features a large brick-built block that opens to reveal four levels from the game: Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain and Lethal Lava Trouble.
The LEGO Super Mario universe launched last year with a Starter Course featuring an interactive LEGO Mario figure that players can use to collect digital coins and enjoy instant responses via LED screens and a speaker. Earlier this year, the LEGO Group launched the LEGO Adventures with Luigi Starter Course to encourage social play as the two characters can now interact with one another and jointly collect more coins. The universe also includes a series of Expansion Sets and Power-Up Packs, allowing builders to expand, rebuild and create unique levels in new interactive ways.
As well as including levels from the Super Mario 64 game, the “? Block” set includes several micro-figure characters that can be placed in the detailed scenes, such as fan favorites Mario and Princess Peach. For interactive play, fans can also add their LEGO Mario or LEGO Luigi figures for unique music and sounds from the video game, plus seek out the hidden Power Stars that reveal secret reactions from the figures.
Fans will be able to get their hands on the LEGO Super Mario 64 “? Block” set exclusively from LEGO Retail Stores and LEGO.com starting Oct. 1. In 2022 it will become available at other retailers around the world.
