The LEGO Group has announced a new unique social play experience that, for the first time, enables children and fans to connect LEGO® Mario™ and LEGO® Luigi™figures for brand new two-player adventures in the LEGO Super Mario universe. Perfect for family activities, this exciting feature will encourage even more social play, with two players able to enjoy the universe of LEGO Super Mario at the same time for new brick-built adventures.
Once connected via Bluetooth, two-player adventures with LEGO Mario and LEGO Luigi (or any combination of the two figures) are made possible. Now, children and fans can play as a team, collect extra digital coins by doing in-sync actions like walking, flipping and jumping, or work together to defeat enemies, complete challenges, share rewards or even by changing up the play and competing against each other.

Players will be able to get their hands on LEGO Luigi with the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course.
