A video has been released by LEGO, showcasing their first collaboration with Nintendo for a series of LEGO Super Mario Sets! The video showcases multiple sets, and reveals a fully interactive experience. You can actually play along with the sets you build, controlling Mario as he tries to defeat Bowser and his minions. The Mario figure is electronic, and features a LCD screen in his chest and his face. Mario’s face changes expressions, and the chest displays info about the level you are playing, such as the coins you collected, or the dangerous terrain you stepped on. Mario has sound and music that he plays as you bounce him along as well. Different sound effects are played as you are collecting coins, entering warp pipes, taking out enemies, and even sliding down the flag poles at the end of your created levels. We’re awaiting full details from LEGO, but you can check out the video below to see what’s in store.
A press release has been made available, along with a few images. Check them out after the jump.
