LEGO and Nintendo have announced a 4-year partnership bringing one of the most iconic video game characters to the famous building toys: Super Mario Bros.
And now, as a release, they are bringing an interactive version, where besides being able to build the scenarios of your favorite character, you can interact with them, collecting coins.
The idea is to mix the best of both worlds, without being a video game or just a game of building blocks. Basically you can play with a Mario or Luigi doll, battery operated and interacting with the Goombas, pipes, Piranhas and other elements in the scenarios. The dolls have a kind of LCD, which helps to bring different expressions to the characters and interactions with the scenarios, such as lava, counting coins, etc.
