Lego is increasing its Tremendous Mario world with customization instruments, new Mario power-ups and extra characters


Lego's partnership with Nintendo made a pretty great debut with the interactive Lego Super Mario earlier this year Starter course, and now additional sets follow to complement the first one. These include a new "Master Your Adventure Maker Set" that adds customization options by tweaking Lego Mario's answer via three new building blocks and a new way to mix the rules for each level. Lego and Nintendo are also releasing additional themed expansion sets, new power-ups for Mario, and a second set of mystery characters that can be incorporated into level builds.

The Master Your Adventure Maker set contains 366 pieces in total and is priced at $ 59.99. Expansion Sets include a Chain Chomp Jungle Playset ($ 19.99), a Piranha Plan Puzzle Challenge Set ($ 29.99), and a new Venom Biome for Mario to explore with Wiggler ($ 39.99). The two new power-ups for Lego Mario are his penguin suit and tanooki suit, which retail for $ 9.99 each.

Each new Series 2 Character Pack is $ 4.99. These are delivered in packaging that only reveals their contents after opening. This increases the likelihood of which of the new characters you will receive. Series 2 characters include Huckit Crab, Spiny Cheep Cheep, Ninji, Foo, Parachute Goomba, Fly Guy, Toadstool, Para Beetle, Thwimp or Bone Goomba.

These will be available for sale from January 1st by both Lego Direct and its retail partners. That's a popular gift set just after the holiday frenzy, which seems like a failure for what you'd expect, but Nintendo is still selling the original starter course and other kits
