After successfully collaborating with Super Mario Lego, Nintendo and Lego are once again merging into a nostalgia set based on the classic NES console from the 1980s.
With the set, which was teased in a five-second video from Lego’s official Twitter account, fans can add a Nintendo Entertainment System console and an associated Lego brick controller, along with a Super Mario Bros. cassette and an old school Build televisions from the retro set.

While the teaser video is as short as it is dark and mysterious, leaked images of the upcoming set were released on the Chinese website VJGamer (where they were discovered by the Twitter leaker @Nibellion), which offer a much better view of what we have can expect from the final product.

According to the leaked images, the Lego NES set will contain a total of 2,646 pieces, which seems about right. What is more surprising, however, is that the box also has an age rating of 18+ for the set, which must be a mistake given the family-friendly nature of Nintendo and Lego.
Given the fact that Lego is currently only teasing the set, it is not surprising that the official pricing and availability have not yet been announced. However, Nibel’s tweet also refers to the German Lego site Promobricks, which claims that the NES set came in on August 1, 2020 at a price of € 229.99 (about $ 260 / £ 208 / AU $ 376) Germany will arrive.
Of course it is only a matter of time before both Lego and Nintendo completely lift the curtain for the retro taste set. So keep up to date as soon as official price details are available.
