    After reported leaks, Nintendo made the news official today: a LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Building Kit will be released. This NES Building Kit comes complete with a controller, cables and even a cartridge slot. There's also buildable CRT TV, featuring a flat, mechanically-controlled 8-bit Mario figure on the scrolling screen. The NES kit will also be compatible with the LEGO Mario from the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course, which reacts to on-screen enemies, obstacles and power-ups similar to the classic Super Mario Bros. game. A brand-new trailer showing the kit in action was also released today:


    The LEGO NES will be available exclusively from LEGO Retail Stores and LEGO.com from August 1st 2020 at $230. From 2021 it will be available also at other leading retailers around the world.

    In the first one you can take a shit. The second one is nostalgic overpriced shit. Tough and shitty decision.

    that was not the official announcement, nor did it contain a definite release date or price, not to mention the video.

    The sad Thing is:
    There probably will be enough people that are willing to pay that price... Thats how our world mostly works and why they can afford to do this. money money money

    Their stuff [nanoblock] is a lot small and not so costly.

    let me get this right?... so you build the nes and the tv out of lego put your cartridge in the slot but you cannot actually play it, you have to wind the tv and the level plays out! I thought you could build the console and the tv and then play it like you would with the original nes with the cartridges this is stupid and expensive..

    What happened to the good old Legos...
    I miss pirates, castles etc.
    Give me bricks and my fantasy to build what I want. I don't need electronics and chunky mario figures. For that reason I have my consoles.

    For $230 you'd expect it to have a motor so you wouldn't have to crank it yourself :rolleyes: :ha:
