Lego Super Mario is getting co-op, four new Expansion Sets and two new Power-Up Packs

Perennial Player 2 icon Luigi is joining the popular Super Mario LEGO set soon, and he'll add some more fun gimmicks to the original set.

We already knew that new LEGO Super Mario sets and character packs were coming in 2021, and today – after a lot of speculation – it's been revealed how Luigi is joining the Lego party.

Once you've built and connected Luigi, you can connect him to Mario via Bluetooth and from there you can play as a team and collect virtual digital coins in tandem with your Lego sibling.

Check out how it all looks in the video below.

"The interactive and highly-anticipated Adventures with Luigi Starter Course is the latest extension of the LEGO Super Mario product line, the result of a unique partnership with Nintendo, that has introduced an entirely new way to play with LEGO bricks," says a press release. "Players will be able to get their hands on LEGO Luigi with the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course, a set that contains elements for both single and dual play from August 1."

Available for pre-order from today is perhaps the biggest expansion to date: the ‘Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set’.

The set gives fans a first chance to build an exciting new level within the universe, taking on the infamous flying ship. "Fight off Kamek, a Goomba and a Rocky Wrench then battle with the ship itself!" says a press release. "The ship can be arranged in ‘flying mode’ or folded out in ‘course mode’."

The other new products introduced today include: Frog Mario and Bee Mario Power-Up packs, which let players change up play and dress Lego Mario in his playful frog and bee suits; and a Boss Sumo Bro Topple Tower Expansion Set, where kids can use their Lego Mario and/or Lego Luigi figure to bring down the Topple Tower.

Here's a full list of all the Super Mario Lego sets you'll be able to buy, as of August 1:

  • 71391 Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set (available to pre-order today) ($99.99)
  • 71388 Boss Sumo Bro Topple Tower Expansion Set ($29.99)
