Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games today announced that LEGO® Ninjago: The Videogame for the Nintendo DS™ family of handheld systems is now spinning into retail stores across North America. The game, inspired by the recently launched LEGO Ninjago product line, will also be available beginning April 13 in Australia, and April 15 in Europe and other PAL territories.
Produced by critically acclaimed TT Games and developed by Hellbent Games, LEGO Ninjago: The Videogame continues the highly-successful LEGO Battles video game brand and introduces kids and the young at heart to an epic tale of good versus evil, exciting battles and quirky LEGO humor. Along the journey, fans will master the art of Spinjitzu – a frenetic, tornado-like spinning combat technique – to battle enemies both new and recognizable to the LEGO world.
“We are very pleased to launch LEGO Ninjago: The Videogame based on the new LEGO Ninjago toy line, as the game creates an entirely new adventure building upon what players appreciated in the first game,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “This real time strategy adventure gives kids of all ages a seamless interactive gaming experience complete with epic battles, Ninjas and classic LEGO charm that our audience has come to expect.”
True to the LEGO build-and-play video game experience, LEGO Ninjago: The Videogame allows gamers to build and customize their Spinjitzu armies, deploy ninjags on missions and use magical spells to unleash special attacks on enemies. Lone warriors can test their skills in a story line that allows them to play as “good” and “evil” single-player campaigns, as well as test their skills in a variety of Battle Mode challenges.
Gamers can also enjoy additional hours of fun by challenging friends in local wireless DS multiplayer showdowns by battling as either heroic Ninjas, villainous Skulkins, or as one of the bonus hidden hero characters.
LEGO Ninjago: The Videogame is rated PEGI 7+ and is available for the Nintendo DS system. For more information please visit: www.videogames.lego.com/Ninjago.
