LEGO Super Mario Power-Up Packs have been announced, giving Mario new abilities

Lego Super Mario Power-Up Packs have been announced, giving Mario new abilities

LEGO and Nintendo have just announced a new addition to their LEGO Super Mario line of playsets - Power-Up Packs! These new packs function as changes of attire for Lego Mario, giving him new looks and abilities to use. 

Watch the announcement video:

The Power Packs expand Mario’s wardrobe, including:

  • The Fire Mario suit, which allows Mario to throw fireballs at enemies for coins.

  • The Propellor Mario suit, which allows Mario to fly around in the air and perform tricks for extra coins.

  • The Cat Mairo suit, which allows Mario to make cat sounds and collect coins by climbing walls. 

  • The Builder Mario suit, which lets Mario leap up, and smash down on bricks to collect coins. 

Basically, if you’re into coin-collecting, you’re going to want to pick these up. They don’t just change up Mario’s look, but have active effects during gameplay as well. That’s assuming that you’re picking these up to actually play with them, and not to just build and leave them in a cabinet somewhere. 

Each Power-Up Pack will cost US$9.99 (S$14), and all of them launch alongside the Lego Super Mario Starter Course on August 1, 2020
