Starter Course officially announced.
The LEGO Group has officially revealed that Luigi is finally joining the LEGO Super Mario universe with his own Starter Course. Featuring an interactive Luigi figure, this extension of the LEGO Super Mario product line lets kids (and adults) freely build Super Mario courses that bring the classic game to life.
LEGO Luigi will be available for pre-order starting this June, and the Starter Course will continue to explain just like Mario. As a nod to the games, LEGO Luigi will have the same charming personality and unique voice, and he will be one plate taller than LEGO Mario just as how his iconic character is known.
LEGO Luigi will also be compatible with the Mario Start Course and all Expansion Sets, Character Packs and Power-Up Packs. LEGO Luigi also has a colour sensor LCD screen just like LEGO Mario and will include different reactions to movement plus a speaker that plays the familiar tunes of the video games.
“We are very pleased to add Mario’s twin brother, Luigi, to the LEGO Super Mario family with the new LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course,” said Takashi Tezuka, Executive Officer and Game Producer of Nintendo Co., Ltd. “Please welcome him as a companion on your adventures in the world of LEGO Super Mario. The addition of Luigi and Mario together creates new kinds of fun play. I look forward to see[ing] what exciting journeys kids will take with these two characters.”
The LEGO Luigi Starter Course will come in 280 pieces and is also compatible with the LEGO Super Mario app that keeps track of scores that encourage continuous rebuilding. The set will release on August 1st, 2021 and will cost 299 AED.
