The Lego Group has just dropped a very flashy trailer for its first-ever LEGO CON, a new virtual convention for fans of the popular brick-based toy franchise. The event will host “exclusive set reveals, incredible special guests, brilliant live builds, Q&A with amazing Lego designers, [and] secrets from inside Lego HQ.”
Featured in its high-profile lineup of franchises are Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Minecraft, but Nintendo fans will likely be most interested to know that LEGO Super Mario is also included. There are no details on what exactly will be showcased, but with a Luigi set slated for release this August, it seems like we might see more from Mario’s blocky brother.
It’s our first EVER official #LEGOCON! 🎉 Join us online on 26 June for an epic show, live from LEGO House! Find out more here: https://t.co/2JrJOQ2MEY pic.twitter.com/IrgNkNs9fW

LEGO CON will air via the official Lego website on June 26th at 12 p.m. EST, 9 a.m. PST, and 5 p.m. BST.
