Nintendo and Lego have marked Halloween by announcing a new range of Luigi’s Mansion Lego sets.
The sets, which despite being revealed during Halloween aren’t actually planned to release until January 1, 2022, include three packs featuring characters and items from Nintendo’s spooky platformer-puzzle series.
The Lab and Poltergust set includes Luigi’s famous vacuum weapon, along with Professor E Gadd. Meanwhile, the Entryway set includes Luigi’s Polterpup companion, and the largest Haunt-and-Seek set includes King Boo and a puzzle-filled course.
The actual Lego Luigi character, which released in August and interacts with the sets via a sensor and speaker, is sold separately.
The Lego Group stated last month that Super Mario was “one of the company’s most successful theme launches”. The company has previously said it hopes to have a “long and fruitful” relationship with Nintendo.
The interactive Lego Mario sets see players collecting coins and defeating enemies in real-life ‘levels’. The first set in the range was the Mario Starter Course, which launched alongside further expansion sets. This was followed with a Luigi Starter Course and more expansion sets.
Lego recently started marking some Super Mario products as “retiring soon”, including the Boomer Bill Barrage Expansion Set, Whomp’s Lava Trouble Expansion Set and Builder Mario Power-Up Pack.
