LEGO has announced that fan-favorite Luigi will join the LEGO Super Mario universe. They unveiled the new LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course. The new product lets kids team up with the green-clad LEGO Luigi for new exciting brick-built adventures.
Featuring the interactive and highly anticipated LEGO Luigi figure, this 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.
LEGO Luigi includes his recognizable and charming personality, with his unique voice, and is one LEGO plate taller than LEGO Mario, staying true to Luigi’s iconic look and traits.
Similar to the Adventures with Mario Starter Course, this new set is an additional entry point to the world of LEGO Super Mario and is compatible with the Mario Starter Course, all Expansion Sets, collectible Character Packs and Power-Up Packs.
Both Starter Courses offer fans nearly limitless ways to expand, rebuild, customize and create their own action-packed challenges in a highly interactive experience with LEGO Mario or LEGO Luigi. Built with the same technology as his brother, LEGO Luigi comes with a color sensor, LCD screen to display many different reactions to movement, and a speaker that plays iconic sounds and music from the Super Mario video game series.
