Super Mario has continued to appear, always in a form adapted to the current hardware of the time. I am thankful that in this project with the LEGO Group, Mario is jumping out of the digital world of game consoles and smart devices, and we are able to bring him into the world with a new, physical type of Mario play,” said Takashi Tezuka, Executive Officer and Game Producer of Nintendo Co., Ltd.
