LEGO Battles Invades DS This Summer


Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games have announced a new LEGO game today, and thankfully it’s something different than the LEGO “insert licensed brand here” games that have become pretty tired at this point. LEGO Battles is the new title and it’s being developed by Hellbent Games exclusively for DS. The announcement press release doesn’t mention a genre, but from the following description it sure sounds like some form of strategy game to me.

LEGO® Battles offers a new kind of “build and battle” LEGO gameplay. Through six distinct story lines, players build their own LEGO bases and battle teams as they engage in over 70 different levels, mixing and matching units to create the ultimate customized LEGO squad. These unique LEGO battles teams see pirate swordsmen fighting side-by-side with wizards and aliens; dragons battling ninjas; and pirate ships launching broadsides against spacecraft and knights! Players can also challenge friends on the battlefield in multiplayer mode through wireless DS multi-card play.

LEGO Battles brings the LEGO Castle, LEGO Pirates and LEGO Space themes together into one melting pot of portable Legoy goodness this summer.
