LEGO Super Mario is a product partnership between Danish toy company LEGO and Mario featuring characters, settings, and objects from Super Mario made of bricks that can interact, including Mario, Yoshi, Shy Guy, Piranha Plant, and Bowser Jr.

The product was first teased on March 10, 2020 (Mario Day) on Twitter,[1] and officially announced on March 12, 2020.[2] Several set pictures and names were officially revealed on April 6, 2020, as well as a few new sets. The theme released early at Target in late July[3] and everywhere else on August 1, 2020[4] with 13 sets revolving around the new interactive Mario figure, which has been shown to react to different things through scanning different stickers on top of 2x2 tiles below him.

Four Power-Up Packs were also announced for the set, which include suits for the Mario figure based on Fire Mario, Propeller Mario, Cat Mario, and Builder Mario.[5]

Officially announced on July 14, 2020, a LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System was also released as part of the partnership on August 1.[6] The set consists of LEGO versions of the system itself, the controller, a Super Mario Bros. cartridge, and a television with a moving panorama depicting a level from the aforementioned game. The Mario figure is also compatible with the set.[7]

Set information

The LEGO playsets seen in the trailer

Mario has a small screen on his chest, displaying different things depending on what he interacts with.

  • A timer is displayed on Mario's chest, likely showing the amount of time the player should have to clear the course in.
  • If Mario defeats enemies, he earns coins.
  • If Mario hits a ? Block, a roulette determines what Mario gets, such as 10 coins.
  • If Mario touches the lava, he takes some damage.
  • If Mario goes near Yoshi, a heart appears on his chest.
  • If Mario touches the Goal Pole, it appears being lowered on his chest. A total sum of coins then appears on Mario's chest, showing how many coins he has collected in the run.
  • Different music is played depending on where Mario is.
  • Sets can be interconnected using the plates, creating one giant "world".[8]

Trivia

The LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System's panel comes off to reveal a recreation of the original World 1-2.
  • When the announcement of the collaboration came, the UK-based video game retailer Game made a page on their website for its customers to sign up for email notifications regarding news related to the product; however, they mistakenly said the announcement came from a Nintendo Direct, in spite of it coming through social media, and the lack of a Nintendo Direct since September 4, 2019. The error was quickly fixed.
  • The stickers with the codes for Mario to scan on top of the 2x2 tiles will be pre-applied when the set is opened, a first in the history of LEGO. According to a designer during an interview, this is because they are very important stickers to the function of the sets, and younger children often have difficulty applying stickers.[17]
  • To prevent clashing with the permanently red shirt, Fire Mario and Builder Mario are given white and yellow overalls, respectively, rather than the traditional red. This causes the former to resemble his fire form from the original Super Mario Bros.
  • Prior to LEGO's partnership with Nintendo, Mario construction toys were created by rival business K'NEX.
  • The LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System has a hidden reference to World 1-2 within the system itself, depicting a portion of the end of the level, complete with the Warp Zone.
