Fans of both LEGO and Nintendo would be delighted to know that they’ll be expecting more than just a Super Mario Bros collaboration. According to a new teaser video posted on Twitter by the toy company, it appears that the next set that they will be releasing is a replica of the Japanese video game maker’s iconic NES video game console.
The teaser itself is quite vague, merely showing a silhouette of the set but enough to reveal that it will be consisting of the console, a controller, and even a vintage TV. However, those interested to see how the actual set looks like are in luck, as Hong Kong-based gaming website VJGamer had obtained leaked images of the LEGO Nintendo NES packaging in its full glory.

The leaked images provides an allegedly clearer look to what the NES set will look like, along with other details and extras that was not shown in the official teaser. It appears that the new set will include 2,646 LEGO pieces to build the Nintendo console, its controller, vintage TV with Super Mario Bros “playing” on screen, and even a game cartridge of the game. The set’s packaging also reveals that the TV features a crank that will allow you to move the 2D sprite of Mario on the screen.
Apart from teasing the Nintendo NES, LEGO did not reveal when we’ll be expecting it to be released. Its pricing had not be confirmed as well, but sources such as Promo Bricks and Nintendo Life believes that the set would cost around USD250 (~RM1,066) when it launches. Regardless, official details from LEGO is expected to be revealed sometime soon.
