The LEGO Group has announced LEGO Mario and LEGO Luigi figures will have a brand new 2-player adventures in the LEGO Super Mario universe. Perfect for family activities, this exciting feature will encourage even more social play, with two players able to enjoy the universe of LEGO Super Mario at the same time for new brick-built adventures.
Once connected via Bluetooth, 2-player adventures with LEGO Mario and LEGO Luigi (or any combination of the two figures) are made possible. Now, children and fans can play as a team, collect extra digital coins by doing in-sync actions like walking, flipping and jumping, or work together to defeat enemies, complete challenges, share rewards or even by changing up the play and competing against each other.
“For us it’s all about encouraging continuous creative rebuilding and extended playtime. With today’s announcement, we’re not only bringing LEGO Mario and LEGO Luigi, their friends and enemies to life in new interactive ways for endless fun, we’re also thrilled to expand their play experience and the LEGO Super Mario universe with even more new sets and characters, something we really hope will excite fans”, says Simon Kent, Creative Lead, LEGO Super Mario.
The 2-player interactive play has been confirmed to be available using any combination of the two figures (LEGO Luigi and LEGO Mario Starter Course) from 1 August 2021.
In addition to the unveiling of the new Bluetooth-enabled 2-player mode, the LEGO Group is introducing four new Expansion Sets, two new Power-Up Packs and ten new Character Packs. The four new Expansion Sets represent highly immersive builds for kids to expand their Starter Courses, and feature elements that are suitable for single play, but also enable dual play, and extra coin collection.
The ‘Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set’ gives fans a first chance to build an exciting new level within the universe, taking on the infamous flying ship. Fight off Kamek, a Goomba and a Rocky Wrench then battle with the ship itself! The ship can be arranged in ‘flying mode’ or folded out in ‘course mode’.
The other new products introduced today include: Frog Mario and Bee Mario Power-Up packs, which let players change up play and dress LEGO Mario in his playful frog and bee suits; and a Boss Sumo Bro Topple Tower Expansion Set, where kids can use their LEGO Mario and/or LEGO Luigi figure to bring down the Topple Tower – fun for solo play, or for playing with friends and family.
