Lego is launching a 2,646-piece Nintendo EntertainmentÂ System
It’ll be compatible with the Lego Super MarioÂ line
Bottom line: Lego on Monday teased what appears to be a nearly 1:1 scale replica of the original Nintendo Entertainment System in block form. Given Nintendo’s firm stance on classic consoles, this could be the closest we’ll get to a new mini console for the foreseeable future.
The five-second teaser video only shows a shadowy figure in front of what appears to be a CRT television. By taking a screenshot of the video and playing with the levels, one can clearly make out the console, a gamepad and the TV.

Lego Super Mario product line that was introduced earlier this year. Exact functionality is still unknown but it appears as if you can remove a panel from the top of the TV and place the Super Mario character there for enhanced functionality.
German publication Promo Bricks claims the set will retail for 229.99 euros (around $260) when it launches in August.
