LEGO is working on a Super Mario set and we cannot wait

Whatever it is, we want it.

LEGO is working on a Super Mario set and we cannot wait
11 March 2020

A LEGO Super Mario set is on the way - we just don’t quite know what it is yet.

Sharing a video on Twitter, LEGO didn’t reveal very much, at all. In the video, you see a cropped image of a very square-looking Mario with a question block on his chest.

The caption accompanying the teaser revealed even less, as LEGO simply writes: “‘It’s-a me, LEGO Mario!’ Stay tuned…”

Naturally, the video has caused all sorts of speculations, but the screen in Mario’s chest does suggest that whatever they’ve worked up could have a digital element, rather than a simple minifigure or building set.

What we do know is that you can expect to see a fair bit of new Super Mario merchandise this year as 2020 marks the 35th birthday of the Italian plumber.

Clothing brand Levi’s is launching a whole collection celebrating Mario and his friends, and has even turned the character’s iconic denim overalls into a real life product.
