Lego and Nintendo have announced a new partnership for a Super Mario 64 Block set to celebrate the game’s 25th anniversary. The set comes with a big question mark block that opens up to reveal iconic settings from the Nintendo 64 title from 1996.
The locations include: Peach’s Castle, Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool, Cool Mountain, and Lethal Lava Trouble. The set launches on October 1 through Lego retail stores and Lego’s website, and it will come to “other leading retailers” globally starting in 2022. The set costs $170 USD.

The set comes with minifigures of famous Mario universe characters, including Mario, Princess Peach, and Luigi. The Mario and Luigi figures can play music and sounds from the game. And finding Power Stars will “reveal secret reactions from the figures.”
“We know how much Super Mario fans have loved the Lego Super Mario experience, and wanted to tap into even more elements of the traditional game play capturing the immersive play experience of Super Mario 64,” Lego senior designer Pablo Gonzalez Gonzalez said.

With this amazing set, we’re building on the exciting play experience of Lego Super Mario, both to bring a bit of nostalgia for those who played the Super Mario 64 video game, but also to introduce these wonderful levels to a whole new audience of Super Mario fans.”
