Don’t get us wrong, the Super Mario Lego reveal earlier this week was great and all, but where are The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong sets? They’d be amazing, right? If you’re still imagining what else Nintendo and LEGO could eventually come up with, the good news is there seems to be a real chance of it happening.
During a recent interview with LEGO fansite The Brothers Brick, Design Manager at the LEGO Creative Play Lab and Digital Design Lead for LEGO Super Mario – Jonathan Bennink – was asked if Nintendo’s other series could eventually be transformed into LEGO sets.
While he couldn’t share “any specifics” just yet, he did say the LEGO team was open to the idea:
They [Nintendo] have a lot of very exciting IPs that we might do or might not do.
LEGO apparently hasn’t worked with Nintendo for the past four years just to release one wave, either. It’s hoping for a long-term partnership with the Japanese video game giant:
we haven’t worked for four years to release just one wave of products. We hope to have a long and fruitful relationship with Nintendo and their IPs, and we are really looking forward to working with them on a longer-term.
So, there you go – Nintendo and LEGO’s partnership could go well beyond Super Mario sets. Are there any particular sets you would like to see? Leave a comment below.
