Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games today revealed The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game, which will hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on October 6. The game will feature the same characters and world featured in the big-screen LEGO Ninjago Movie, and will of course feature the trademark humor and gratifying, accessible gameplay that TT Games is known for. Check out the brand new reveal trailer above.
In the game players will slash, punch, kick, and spin through waves of enemies as Lloyd, Nya, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane, and Master Wu. The evil lord Garmadon and his Shark Army are threatening the island of Ninjago, and it will be up to you to master the "art of Ninjagility" to defeat them. As you continue to fight and level up your characters you'll be upgrading various ninja skills that allow you to high-jump, wall-run, and fight like only a ninja can.
“The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game brings the non-stop action and thrilling combat of the film into the living room so kids can embark on their own Ninjago adventures,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “Enhanced movements will help players traverse Ninjago with the fluidity and grace of a secret ninja warrior and improve their combat skills.”
“The LEGO Group is pleased to extend the Ninjago play experience with The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game,” said Sean McEvoy, VP Digital Games, The LEGO Group. “Fans will love playing as their favourite Ninjago heroes and joining an epic adventure of good versus evil.”
The press release also confirmed the inclusion of competitive multiplayer modes. Players will be able to travel to "Battle Maps" to take on friends and family in four different game modes for up to four players. The single-player campaign will feature eight distinct locations based on the film, and each location will have its own Challenge Dojo where players will put their combat skills to the test facing increasingly tougher enemies.
Stay tuned for more info -- we're likely to get a few more trailers and a torrent of additional information leading up to the October launch.
