LEGO Announces a LEGO NES and Television – And the AFOL Community Goes Crazy

LEGO thrills Super Mario fans with a new LEGO-built Nintendo Entertainment System and 1980s-style television.

A day after leaks started appearing on the internet, The LEGO Group formally announced the next release in their new partnership with Nintendo — and instantly won over many AFOLs who weren’t quite so excited about the initial Super Mario product launch earlier this year.

The new set is a highly realistic LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System and 1980s-style television set. The LEGO NES will be available exclusively at LEGO retail stores and online at www.lego.com starting on August 1, 2020. It will also be available at other leading retailers around the world in 2021. The set will include 2,646 pieces and retail for £209.99 / $229.99 USD.

According to the press release, “The new NES Building Kit will include a controller with a connecting cable and plug and even an opening slot for the Game Pak with a locking feature. The console also comes with a buildable retro TV, featuring a flat 8-bit Mario figure on the scrolling screen. Fans can scan an included action brick with LEGO® Mario™ from the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course, so he reacts to on-screen enemies, obstacles and power-ups just as he would have in the iconic Super Mario Bros. game.”
