When you think of third-party games on Nintendo systems, LEGO is one of the first things that may come to mind. After all, we’ve seen numerous titles on the Big N’s systems going back to the N64. It also helps that several LEGO games tend to release each generation.

Given all of this information, it shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that LEGO is the best-selling third-party franchise on Nintendo platforms. That’s according to the NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella.

Piscatella shared a couple of other noteworthy tidbits as well. LEGO is the ninth-biggest video game franchise in history in terms of dollar sales. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, LEGO Batman, and LEGO Star Wars II are the best-selling entries.

LEGO recently surprised fans by unveiling another aspect of its partnership with Nintendo. Aside from Super Mario, the two sides teamed up to create a LEGO version of the Nintendo Entertainment System. Both products are currently available.

In an interview with GameCentral not too long ago, designer Maarten Simons discussed the creation process for the Mario sprite piece and working with Nintendo on the project. He told the site:

The LEGO NES was only just announced a couple of weeks ago, but the product has already arrived. Its official release date is tomorrow.

What you may not know is that there’s a special Easter egg hidden inside. We’ll be going into more detail beyond this point, so keep that in mind if you don’t want to be spoiled in any way.

Nintendo Life has published a new interview with Jonathan Bennink, the lead designer on LEGO Super Mario. Bennink spoke about the earliest designs, how Nintendo dropped the product 6,000 times each time a new build was sent to them, approval for sound effects and getting new voice lines from Charles Martinet, and being able to have meetings with Koji Kondo – which usually doesn’t happen.

Here’s the full roundup of these topics:
