LEGO have released a Nintendo Entertainment system (NES) set and it’s amazing

July 17th, 2020 by Marc Comments

The wonderful folks at LEGO have put up pre-orders for their latest set and it’s, well, it’s beautiful.

Marking the 35th anniversay of the NES, the new set is a retro-feel Nintendo Entertainment System along with controller, game and TV on which – wait for this! – you can play a LEGO version of Super Mario which you build with bricks!

The console takes the game, the buttons click… honestly, we still have an NES in this house with games and it gets played pretty often, but this will be bought too because, will, it’s beautiful.

Check out the video detailing the set below and let me know your thoughts, gang.

Man, this is soooooooooooooo great!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
