As announced earlier this year as part of a larger MAR10 Day (March 10) celebration, Princess Peach is officially set to join the ongoing LEGO Super Mario lineup with her own interactive minifigure and expansions on August 1. . While photos of the new interactive LEGO Peach were revealed at the time, LEGO and Nintendo had yet to show the minifigure in action. That is, so far a new video showing what LEGO Peach can do has been released.
The video specifically shows LEGO Peach eating one of the berries most associated with Yoshi, swinging around, wearing a cat costume, and more. He also reveals that LEGO Peach will have a special interaction near LEGO Mario. You can check out the brief overview of all the things LEGO Peach can do (which is quite similar to LEGO Mario and LEGO Luigi) embedded below:

“Peach is such a fan-favorite that we knew we had to add her and the iconic castle to our LEGO Super Mario world,” said Simon Kent, LEGO Group Creative Lead, when the LEGO minifigure and sets Peach were first announced last month. . “Over the past two years, we’ve focused on helping fans be as creative as possible with their favorite characters, which is why we’ve gradually built the universe up with more expansion sets, packs of characters and power-up packs. Year we added a Luigi Starter Course to bring the two-player action to life, and now we’re excited to be able to continue to strengthen the social element of the game, bringing LEGO Peach into the action as well. Peach will play an important role by joining the famous brothers on their journey to defeat their enemies and earn as many coins as possible in the process as well. »
As noted above, the LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Peach Starter Course, LEGO Super Mario Peach’s Castle Expansion Set, LEGO Super Mario Yoshi’s Gift House Expansion Set, and several other expansion sets should all release on August 1. Prices vary on the different sets, with the cheapest being $9.99 while the most expensive, the LEGO Super Mario Peach Castle Expansion Set, is $129.99. The range of LEGO Super Mario sets are otherwise available wherever such things are sold. You can check out all of our previous LEGO coverage here.
