Nintendo and LEGO Group have revealed that the next set in the LEGO Super Mario line will release on August 1, 2021 and star none other than Mario’s younger brother, Luigi.
“Introduce children to the interactive LEGO Super Mario universe with this Adventures with Luigi Starter Course (71387). An awesome gift toy for trend-setting kids, it features a LEGO Luigi figure that gives instant expressive responses via an LCD screen and speaker. Players earn digital coins for helping LEGO Luigi complete spinning seesaw and flying challenges, interactions with Pink Yoshi and defeating Boom Boom and a Bone Goomba. The nougat-brown-colored bricks in this Tower biome also trigger different reactions from LEGO Luigi, and the ? Block offers extra rewards.”
Just like the Lego Mario set, the Lego Luigi set has an LCD screen to display various, instant reactions to movement and a speaker that plays “iconic sounds and music from the video game”. He also is included with a Start Pipe to Goal Pole and requires two AA batteries which are not included.
The “Adventures with Luigi Starter Course” set will release on August 1, 2021 (the first anniversary of the Super Mario line) and it can be pre-ordered here.
Dave’s first Nintendo platform was the GameCube when he was age 7; however, he was introduced to Nintendo through Duck Hunt on NES.
