The LEGO Group announced on July 14, 2020, a LEGO Classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Building Kit for adults, letting grown-up fans create their own NES console with LEGO bricks. If you’re looking to recreate your favorite Super Mario Bros. childhood experiences, the LEGO Group has you covered. The new kit will be available exclusively on August 1st, 2020 from LEGO retail stores and LEGO.com. It will then be made available in other select retail stores in 2021.
The LEGO NES kit offers a brick-built NES model packed with realistic details, including the accompanying 1980’s style LEGO television set, with ports, a controller, connecting cables, and Game Pak slots. The console also comes with a buildable retro TV, the best part being a moving 8-bit Mario figure, built with mechanical functions. Work the lever on the side of the television and actually watch Mario scroll across the television screen, jumping on Goombas and Koopa Troopas.
Those who have the LEGO Super Mario Starter Set will also be able to scan an included action brick with LEGO Mario, so he reacts to on-screen enemies, obstacles, and power-ups just as he would have in the iconic Super Mario Bros. game.
