I’m not sure if it’s been dictated by Nintendo or simply a design choice by the LEGO® Super Mario Design Team but quite a few of the LEGO Super Mario Expansion Sets are inspired by the more recent Mario games. Obviously, there are enemies and locations which have appeared in the games since the very beginning but newer titles from the Wii, Wii U and Switch have acted as a major source for many of the LEGO sets....
