After leaking last night, LEGO has now officially revealed the LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System. The NES Building Kit will hit Australia on August 1st for $349.99 AUD and will include a buildable controller with a cord, a buildable NES system and a buildable retro TV. The controller connects to the unit with a cord and the NES even has a game flap that can be opened and closed.
The best part about the set is that it’s actually interactive. You can scan in your Mario from the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course and you can then play an 8-Bit version of Mario on the LEGO built screen. He’ll be able to react to enemies, obstacles and power-ups just as he would have in the game.
Trigger nostalgic memories as you build this wonderfully detailed LEGO® brick Nintendo Entertainment System™ (71374) and interactive, 1980s-style television displaying the classic Super Mario Bros game.
The TV has a handle-operated scrolling screen and if you scan the action brick by placing LEGO® Mario™ (figure not included) in the slot on top, he will react to the on-screen enemies, obstacles and power-ups.
Authentic details of the NES console are recreated in LEGO® style, including a controller and an opening slot for the buildable Game Pak with a realistic locking function to delight Super Mario Bros.™ fans.
Whether you were an NES gamer back in the day, a fan of retro stuff, or are just looking for an immersive, fun, creative DIY project to leave you feeling revitalized, this 2,646-piece model building kit is ideal for you.
The buildable TV measures over 8” (22.5cm) high, 9” (23.5cm) wide and 6” (16cm) deep, and alongside the NES model makes a cool display item for your home or office. It also makes the best LEGO® gift for gamer friends.
No batteries required – combine this playset with the LEGO® Mario™ figure in the LEGO® Super Mario™ Adventures with Mario Starter Course (71360) to activate the TV’s interactive features.
Easy-to-follow instructions help you to build with confidence, even if you are a LEGO® newcomer. Also included is an illustrated booklet about the creation of the Nintendo Entertainment System™ and classic NES games.
