More details have emerged of the exciting upcoming interactive collision between LEGO and Super Mario.

As it stands, three sets are down for release on August 1, a main one and two expansions – Piranha Plant Power Slide, and Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle. They’ll all be able to be used together to create real world Super Mario courses for the little electronically enhanced plumber to navigate, collecting virtual coins as he goes. BLING!

It looks like it’ll be a really cool thing for kids to play with – and, of course, adults!
