We finally got a look at the official Donkey Kong playsets coming to LEGO Super Mario, and they'll be arriving in early August.


Over the last couple weeks, the LEGO Group and Nintendo have been frequently teasing upcoming Donkey Kong sets in the LEGO Super Mario series. Today they finally showed off the sets, as well as putting a date on when they’ll be arriving. It looks like we can look forward to a collection of four LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong sets coming in early August 2023.

LEGO and Nintendo officially unveiled the LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong sets with a new trailer on April 28, 2023.

We had seen several teases of the Donkey Kong sets for the LEGO Super Mario series leading up to this year’s Mario Day on March 10, 2023. Now we finally have confirmation of what those sets are and when they’ll be coming. It looks to be a good spread too. LEGO has been consistent with offering Starter sets for new major characters like Peach and Luigi, but the small character packs like Rambi and the larger Diddy Kong set look like they’ll offer enthusiasts plenty of price points and options to add to their existing LEGO Super Mario collection.

With August release dates set for the LEGO Super Mario Donkey Kong sets, stay tuned for further updates and details leading up to their release, as well as more LEGO Super Mario news as it drops.
