Get ready for a new trio of LEGO games that aren’t based on another property, but are instead based on a new series of LEGO sets. Warner Bros. and the LEGO Group have revealed three upcoming games set to expand upon their Legend of Chima universe. The three different games are said to offer something for all types of LEGO fans and are due to release at various times throughout the year.
The first of the three Legend of Chima games, LEGO: Legend of Chima: Speedorz, is already out on LEGO.com and is a racing mini-game that pits players against ‘famous’ Chima characters as you race and battle your way through iconic Chima locations (how are they famous and iconic already?). The title will also be out on iOS tomorrow.
Later in the Fall, LEGO: Legend of Chima: Laval’s Journey will hit the 3DS and PS Vita and will have players, presumably, taking on the role of Laval as he and his allies attempt to fight for justice. Around the same time, a free-to-play MMO currently called LEGO: Legends of Chima Online will be released that will have players build and customize their kingdom in Chima, as well as explore the games many massive areas, go on missions, and acquire rewards, treasures and other secret…stuff.
“We are doing something innovative with LEGO Legends of Chima™ by making three distinct videogame experiences on a variety of platforms,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “By creating multiple LEGO videogame experiences for one brand, we are catering to today’s diverse gaming community, as well as establish a rewards system for players of all three games.”
