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:

SEGA debuted a new gameplay video for its recently-announced puzzle title Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 during the Future Games Show. Check it out below.
