The LEGO Super Mario Starter Course & The First of A Range of LEGO Super Mario Expansion Sets Revealed

The LEGO Group announced pre-order availability of the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Mario Starter Course. Fans can now secure their own set of this upcoming and highly anticipated new product line, the result of a unique partnership with Nintendo. The new LEGO Super Mario product line features an interactive LEGO Mario figure that collects coins in real-life game levels created with LEGO bricks. Neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick-based set, it promises to change the way people interact with Super Mario in the physical world and engage in LEGO experiences. 

Disclosed for the first time today by LEGO Design Lead Jonathan Bennink, fans will be able to begin exploring the fun-packed LEGO Super Mario universe with the Adventures with Mario Starter Course. This entry point set to the world of LEGO Super Mario is needed to unlock expansion sets and features seven action bricks for different interactions with the LEGO Mario figure that are only included in this set.

The LEGO Mario figure itself has LCD screens in his eyes, mouth and belly to display a wide variety of instant reactions to movement, color and action bricks. Also included is a speaker that plays iconic sounds and music from the video game series.

Kids aged 6+ can build levels and play their own way, with action-packed challenges having lots of creative fun in a highly interactive experience. LEGO Mario is used to collect virtual coins as he runs and jumps from the Start Pipe to the Goal Pole via LEGO bricks, cloud platform, and clashes with the Goomba figure and Bowser Jr. figure. 

The Starter Course can be combined with LEGO Super Mario Expansion Sets, which each unlock unique challenges and characters to play with and against friends. The first Expansion Sets, also revealed today, include the Piranha Plant Power Slide Expansion Set and the Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Expansion Set. And because the products all include modular builds, fans are fully in charge of creating exactly the LEGO level course they want to see Mario come to life in.

Fans will also love the free LEGO Super Mario app by the LEGO Group, a supporting feature to further enhance the physical play experience. It keeps track of scores to encourage continuous rebuilding, as well as it provides digital building instructions with zoom and rotate viewing tools to make building easier, suggests other creative ways to build and play, and is a safe forum to share ideas with friends. 

The full LEGO Super Mario assortment will launch Aug. 1st 2020, but fans can now pre-order the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Mario Starter Course on www.lego.com/supermario-startercourse and from select leading retailers around the world. 

The retail price for the Starter Course is $59.99, while the rprice for the two expansion sets will be $29.99 for the Piranha Plant Power Slide Expansion Set and $99.99 for the Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Expansion Set.

Die Hard Board Game Slated For Spring 2019 Release

USAopoly, a leading board game and puzzle publisher, and FOX Consumer Products announced plans to release Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game this spring. This is the first time the suspenseful action classic, which made its theatrical debut in 1988, has been officially licensed for a board game.

“Die Hard’s influence over the action-thriller genre is staggering, so we were beyond excited for the opportunity to harness the movie’s expert blend of action, intelligence and drama into a unique tabletop experience,” said Pat Marino, Lead Game Designer, USAopoly. “We are developing a game that will deeply resonate with Die Hard enthusiasts, incorporating even the slightest details to create a rich and entertaining experience that properly pays tribute to arguably the greatest action movie of all time.”

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game will leverage one-versus-many, asymmetric gameplay to pit protagonist John McClane against others acting as thieves, cooperating to foil the hero’s plan, which is to save the hostages in the iconic Nakatomi Plaza high-rise. Movie buffs and hobby game enthusiasts will appreciate the forthcoming release’s distinct homage to the 1988 film, which packs rules and gameplay to the air vents with callbacks to Die Hard’s most memorable scenes, characters, and events. 

Federico San Martin, Vice President of Global Toys and Hardlines, 20th Century Fox Consumer Products added: “The Die Hard board game from USAopoly provides an engaging touch point for fans seeking a nostalgic trip back to Nakatomi Tower and, three decades after the film’s release, allows a new generation of fans to play a unique game experience showcasing this incredible property.”

The OP, the award-winning publisher behind hit party games Telestrations® and Blank Slate™, as well as popular hobby games Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War and Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, has worked with FOX Consumer Products for 13 years. The company has created compelling board game experiences for a variety of their licenses, including Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama and Planet of the Apes. 

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game will be available Spring 2019 in select retailers, encouraging friends to come out to the table, get together, have a few laughs. Debates over whether the title will be considered a Christmas game or an action game to play year-round are expected to surface among fans waiting to relive the pop-culture hit on the table top.
