LEGO has a brand new property in the works that will see the release of three video games throughout 2013.
According to Warner Bros., there are three different LEGO Legends of Chima projects in the works. Each will “provide an entirely unique and exciting adventure that builds to the next experience and complement the just announced LEGO Legends of Chima universe of products, which includes construction sets, vehicles, TV content and more.”
LEGO Legends of Chima is a fantasy adventure. The IP features different magical animal tribes and a story of good and evil, friendship and family.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment senior vice president Samantha Ryan said:
“We are doing something innovative with LEGO Legends of Chima by making three distinct videogame experiences on a variety of platforms. 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.”
Gamers will likely be interested in the TT Games-made LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval’s Journey. This is a handheld title for the 3DS, DS, and PlayStation Vita. Users will explore the world of Chima, leading warrior Laval and his allies on the fight for justice. Laval’s Journey is due out this summer for the 3DS and Vita, followed by the DS version in autumn.
A racing mini-game, LEGO Legends of Chima: Speedorz, will be available today on LEGO.com and on iOS tomorrow. There’s also the free-to-play LEGO Legends of Chima Online title in the works which will be available this autumn. Details about the two projects can be found below.
LEGO Legends of Chima: Speedorz, a racing mini-game produced by TT Games and 4T2, revs its way on to LEGO.com today and iOS tomorrow, 3rd January. Players will race against famous Chima™ characters, battle through iconic Chima™ locations, and unleash the power of CHI to boost their Speedorz, all while collecting studs and rewards to unlock more Speedorz and customize characters. The player’s goal is to become the ultimate champion and win Golden CHI, which transforms the world map and opens a new race level.
LEGO Legends of Chima Online, a free-to-play, online world developed by WB Games Montréal, will provide kids with a safe and incredibly immersive connected game experience. Players will be able to build and customize their kingdom in the world of Chima™, explore massive environments like the Falling Leaves Forest, take on missions to help Laval and his friends, uncover hidden secrets and treasures, earn rewards, and use LEGO bricks to build weapons, gadgets, and more!
