The LEGO Group announces that fan-favourite Luigi will join the LEGO Super Mario universe with an unveiling of 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.
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, collectable Character Packs and Power-Up Packs.
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. It 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.
Kids aged 6+ can ‘level up’ their play with new additions to the LEGO Super Mario experience. When moving LEGO Luigi from the Start Pipe to the Goal Pole, players can earn digital coins in real-life level-play by helping LEGO Luigi complete a spinning seesaw challenge, interacting with the new Pink Yoshi and defeating Boom Boom and a Bone Goomba.
The 71387 Adventures with Luigi Starter Course includes brown-colored bricks signifying the Tower biome that will trigger a new sound from LEGO Luigi and a “? Block” designed to offer exciting extra rewards.
The 280-piece Adventures with Luigi Starter Course can be built, rebuilt and combined with all other LEGO Super Mario sets in many fun ways to create new LEGO Super Mario worlds and continue enjoying them indefinitely. The free LEGO Super Mario app, developed by the LEGO Group, is compatible with all LEGO Super Mario products and keeps track of scores to encourage continuous rebuilding.
The LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course is available for pre-order online starting today at LEGO Certified Stores, Toys ‘R’ US, and the official LEGO Store on Lazada, Shopee and Amazon.
It will launch for general sale globally from 1 August 2021. The recommended retail price for the Adventures with Luigi Starter Course is S$84.90.
