The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game revealed
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group today announced The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game that will allow players to delve into the world of the new big-screen animated adventure The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on September 22, 2017, the same day the movie opens in theaters nationwide.
In the game, players battle their way through waves of enemies with honor and skill as their favorite ninjas Lloyd, Nya, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Master Wu to defend their home island of Ninjago from the evil Lord Garmadon and his Shark Army. To do so, they must master the art of Ninjagility which allows them to traverse Ninjago by wall-running, high-jumping and battling the foes of Ninjago to rank up and upgrade the ninja’s combat skills. Players can harness the power of Spinjitzu combat to defend Ninjago together.
The game features eight large, action-packed locations based on the story of The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Each location includes its own unique Challenge Dojo where players can put their combat skills to the test and battle with increasingly tougher enemies. And with Battle Maps, players can go up against their friends and family in four different game modes, with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
