A new Lego set based on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) has leaked, and later formally teased.
Initially leaked by Chinese outlet VJ Gamer, the Lego set is for a Nintendo Entertainment System, controller, tube-style TV playing Super Mario Bros., and Super Mario Bros. cartridge. Cranking the handle on the TV will cause Mario to “jump” on the screen.
The set is also compatible with the Lego Super Mario set, with Lego Mario making sounds when placed on top of the TV.
