In statement of Mario Day, LEGO simply unveiled two new LEGO Mario expansions—a Donkey Kong character pack, plus the Dry Bowser Citadel Battle set. These is perhaps the weirdest additions to the LEGO Mario universe; not solely can Mario trip Donkey Kong, however he can elevate weights in Dry Bowser’s health club.
LEGO’s Dry Bowser Citadel Battle set options 1,321 items, together with distinctive characters like Dry Bowser, Purple Toad, and Bone Goomba. The aim is to save lots of Toad and launch Dry Bowser off his fortress, although there are many hidden chests and different secrets and techniques to seek out on this set.
After all, I’m extra interested by Dry Bowser’s health club, which takes up an enormous portion of the fortress. It comprises a purposeful bench press and punching bag. Evidently, Mario collects cash when he workout routines in Dry Bowser’s health club—it’s bizarre, however I really like seeing Mario pump some iron.
LEGO additionally teased the upcoming Donkey Kong character pack. Sadly, we solely know one factor about this character pack; Mario can trip Donkey Kong. Different particulars, together with the launch date and pricing, are unknown. (Although LEGO says that Donkey Kong will arrive “this summer time.”)
These LEGO Mario expansions had been unveiled throughout a brief occasion, which you’ll be able to watch on YouTube. The Dry Bowser Citadel Battle set launches August 1st for $110. We don’t know something concerning the Donkey Kong character pack presently.
