Princess Peach joins Lego Super Mario universe

Published on: 11th March 2022

The Adventures with Peach Starter Course and Lego Super Mario Peach’s Castle Expansion Set will be released this summer along with other Super Mario sets.

Lego Peach will be entering the universe of Lego Super Mario, the product line developed together with Nintendo, the Lego Group has announced.

The iconic princess joins Lego Mario and Lego Luigi, with fans able to power up their adventure when the Peach Starter Course becomes available from 1st  August 2022.

Lego Peach brings her recognisable voice and sound effects to the Lego Super Mario Universe and all three interactive figures will now be available in separate Starter Courses, entry points into the world of Lego Super Mario.

With the Adventures with Peach Starter Course, fans can earn digital coins and discover reactions by helping the princess ride the swing set and open gifts, while defeating enemies such as Lemmy and a Lava Bubble, or befriending a Yellow Toad. The interactive Lego Peach, Lego Mario and Lego Luigi figures are able to connect with one another via Bluetooth (two at a time), where players can greet each other, celebrate and team up to defeat enemies, earning bonus digital coins by working together. With the August release, the interactive figures will also be able to trigger positive reactions by eating fruits found across the new sets or gifting fruits to other characters.

The Lego Group is also launching the highly anticipated Lego Super Mario Peach’s Castle Expansion Set. The castle boasts a range of fun challenges, including knocking Ludwig off the cloud, fixing the broken bridge and greeting Toadette and features a buildable throne room that can spin around to reveal Bowser. There are other fun surprises to discover in the castle such as a Bob-omb painting with a secret Action Tag and a cake with a Goomba hiding inside.

Other new sets announced include a Lego Super Mario Yoshi’s Gift House Expansion Set, while also available from 1st August are the Lego Super Mario Fuzzy Flippers Expansion Set, Lego Super Mario Cat Peach Suit and Frozen Tower Expansion Set, Lego Super Mario Goomba’s Shoe Expansion Set and Lego Super Mario Big Spike’s Cloudtop Challenge Expansion Set.

“Peach is such a fan favourite that we knew we had to add her and the iconic castle to our Lego Super Mario world,” said Simon Kent, creative lead, the Lego Group. “Over the past two years, we’ve focused on helping fans get as creative as possible with their favourite characters, which is why we’ve been gradually building out the universe with more Expansion Sets, Character Packs and Power-Up Packs. Lego Peach will play an important role in joining the famous brothers on their journey to defeat their enemies and earn as many coins as possible in the process, too.”

The interactive Lego Super Mario Adventures with Peach Starter Course and Peach’s Castle Expansion Set are the latest extension of the Lego Super Mario product line, which launched in 2020. As a result of a partnership between Nintendo and the Lego Group, the product line now boasts the three Starter Courses, 17 Expansion Sets, a host of Power-Up Packs and Character Packs, as well as two adult sets.
