Chima goes digital

January 3, 2013

The new Legends of Chima theme is barely on the shelf but LEGO already has big plans for it. Warner Brothers Interactive has three games planed. A mini game for LEGO.com, one for Nintendo 3DS and PSP Vita, and a free to play online game.

London, UK – 2nd January, 2013 – Enter and explore the Kingdom of Chima™ in three gameplay experiences, offering something for all types of LEGO® gamers! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and The LEGO Group today announced the LEGO ® Legends of Chima ™ videogames, scheduled to roar into 2013 for various platforms. The three videogames will each 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 set in land inhabited by different magical animal tribes and tells the classic story of good and evil, friendship and family.

“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.”

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 ™: Laval’s Journey, developed by TT Games, is scheduled to be available for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and for the PS®Vita system in summer 2013 and for the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system in autumn 2013. Players will embark on an amazing adventure into the world of Chima™ where the brave warrior Laval and his allies are called upon to fight for justice.

In autumn 2013, 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!

The Chima™ Vault, which houses an exclusive reward system, will be accessible to players on LEGO.com/chima. While playing LEGO Legends of Chima™: Speedorz ™ and LEGO Legends of Chima™: Laval’s Journey , players will be able to earn points. These points can be redeemed through the Vault for a variety of unique content that players can use to enhance their experience in LEGO® Legends of Chima ™ Online.

Not to be out done, Cartoon Network is starting a whole new series based off the toys. The first episode will be aired on January 16th.

I’m still on the fence with these sets. I’m personally not too keen on the whole animal figs, but I do like all the new parts and colors. Olive green and bright light orange any one? Not to mention the awesome new wing elements.

I’m hoping the Nintendo 3 DS game will be fun and plan on picking that up when it becomes available.

Behind the designs of the LEGO Harry Potter Game

July 3, 2010

LEGO Harry Potter the Video Game just recently hit stores earlier this week. I’ve not yet had a chance to check out the game, but thanks to LEGO Model Designer Carl Greatrix I have seen a few of the excellent models he designed for the game.

What is really interesting (and very cool) is that LEGO strives to make even the digital world actually build-able. That is where Carl Greatrix comes in. Some things like tables and chairs are pretty easy to design, while others like the dragon skeleton that hangs in one of the classrooms and the whomping willow are much more complex.

Carl generally designs the model in real life first and then creates it digitally. You can see with this “Ride in the Wasp” both the digital copy and the original.

Sometimes as with the pumpkin car the actual model looks a little different than the final game version.

The more and more I see of this game I can’t wait to try it. :D


Carl, along with his coworkers, were also recently interviewed on Eurogamer.net.

You can see even more of Carl’s models in his Harry Potter LEGO game build / designs set on Flickr and of course when you play the LEGO Harry Potter Video Game. ;)

TT Games Announces Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars

February 8, 2010

It’s official, there will soon be a third LEGO Star Wars Video Game.

Based on the popular Cartoon Network animated TV series. The game is set for Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, DS, and PC this fall. The company promises characters from both seasons of the series, along with cameos from the movie characters. TT is working to make this game an improvement over previous installments with an enhanced level builder, Jedi and Separatist factions, and new attacks and abilities.

“LucasArts is an amazing partner, and working with them on the next iteration of the Lego Star Wars continues to be a great experience,” said TT Games director Tom Stone in the press release. “The team at TT is working hard at making this simply the best Lego game ever with all new gameplay and features never before seen in a Lego game.”

Now although Clone Wars isn’t my most favorite of the Star Wars universe, I’m always a fan of the Traveler’s Tales LEGO Video Games. :)

Of course, I’m falling a tad behind on the games, since I’ve yet to get a PS3, Wii or Xbox. But I’ll catch up one of these days. ;)

LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues

May 29, 2009

TT Games has announced LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues.

LONDON, UK – 29th May, 2009 – LucasArts and TT Games today announced that LEGO® Indiana Jones™ 2: The Adventure Continues will whip onto Wii™, Nintendo DS™, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows in the Fall of 2009.

LEGO Indiana Jones 2 presents a tongue-in-cheek take on all four cinematic adventures of pop culture’s most iconic archaeologist, including for the first time ever Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and will give players the ability to create levels of their own!

“LucasArts and TT Games continue to set the bar for next-generation family entertainment with the LEGO Indiana Jones franchise,” said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. “LEGO Indiana Jones 2 delivers something a little different for everyone. Parents will enjoy the humorous take on the classic moments from their favorite movies, and their kids have an opportunity to experience the most authentic LEGO experience by building their own fun levels brick by brick.”

“It has been a real joy to work with LucasArts on such an iconic character. Indiana Jones embodies the adventurous spirit that perfectly suits the LEGO world,” said Tom Stone, director at TT Games. “Indy also presents us with wonderful and memorable cinematic moments.”

While looking for info on Indy 2 I also found a trailer for the LEGO Rock Band game.

The ability to make your own levels on Indy 2 sounds like an interesting feature. My only complaint is no PS2 version! It seems Sony is determined to make me buy a PS3!!!! Darn marketers! :P

LEGO Rock Band looks fun too. The minifigs playing instruments are just so darn cute! :D
