Super Lego Mario is coming and we need it now

It's the collaboration we didn't know we needed. Lego and Nintendo have joined forces to create a brand new product called Super Lego Mario, and it isn't a Lego-themed Mario video game. In fact, it's the reverse: a Mario-themed Lego set.

The set combines traditional Lego building blocks with digital technology. A Lego Mario figure contains screens on his face and chest, and can interact with bricks to collect coins and progress through levels. Lego Mario's facial expression changes when, for example, he is placed on a flame tile (ours would too). Even in square-jawed lego form, Mario looks great (check out our guide for more character design inspiration). The whole thing basically looks like a real world Super Mario Maker. Check out Nintendo's official video (below) to see it in action.
