Maybe it might have taken some time (a year to the day, in fact) for Louis to get his brother back, but by August 1st you might have a suitable fraternal meeting in the form of brick blocks. Yes, LEGO Louis is in the process of being part of the new LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Louis Starter Course scheduled for release in early August.
LEGO Luigi is as interactive as its sibling, with a small LCD screen powered by two AAA batteries that react to movement, color and some special bricks. His eyes, mouth and belly react to these inputs and a small speaker in the figure adds brand sound and musical phrases to the series.
Louis ’sentences are unique to him, of course, and his Starter Set comes with nine characters, including a Pink Yoshi and an encounter with Boom Boom. Louis can also interact with all other LEGO Super Mario sets available, so you don’t have to worry about compatibility (you can find out more about how they came to be our interview with the project’s lead designer).
