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.
