Lego Battles: All the awesome and none of the license!

TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have teamed up once again to deliver an all-new Lego experience to the Nintendo DS, this time simply focusing on the toys themselves with Lego Battles.

Lego Battles is a game for the Nintendo DS that combines three popular Lego toy lines - Lego Castle, Lego Pirates and Lego Space - allowing players to create bases and customized squads in order to engage in more than 70 different levels worth of fierce block combat, or head-to-head via Nintendo DS wireless multi-card play. Players will mix and match units from all three Lego sets, resulting in epic confrontations the likes of which we've only dreamed about. A pirate ship filled with ninja versus a spaceship manned by wizards? It's the kind of stuff you'd find airbrushed on the side of a van 30 years ago.

“LEGO® Battles offers players the action-packed and humor-filled gameplay that make LEGO games great, along with the added bonus of linked multiplayer battles on DS,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “We are excited to introduce a new LEGO videogame experience to fans and young gamers and look forward to expanding upon the beloved toy lines.”

So the next Lego title from TT games isn't Lego Transformers. It's time to see if the Lego brand can stand on its own two blocking legs. Look for Lego Battles to erupt on the Nintendo DS this summer.

    Everything about this game points to it being a huge win and possibly the best lego game ever.

    Lego Space, Pirate, and Castle
    RTS style gameplay
    building castles/bases as well as forming a custom army
    online battles

    This game is going to be awesome.

    Oh and lowly...no, appearantly the DS can do anything and continues to own my life. :(

    When they say "building castles", do they mean, like, actually building them with blocks?

    Please?

    I agree, this sounds like a nice change of style. Plus them using the classic toy sets is touching my memories of buying some of these classic sets.

    I hope they allow you to build your bases from scratch. That would be pretty cool.

    Erm, those pics obviously arent from the game, so I wonder how its going to look on DS.

    This sounds like complete win, but the lack of information is making me skeptical. Am I the only one?

    I'd buy two. Hell, I'd buy two if it was just a virtual box of legos. Also, there better be a 'tower defense' mode where you can build your castle, watch it get overrun, improve the design, and repeat - I spent WEEKS doing that with Legos as a kid, and if they bring that in handheld form I'll probably starve to death because I'll actually forget to eat.

    That's the new Pirate lego chick from the new Pirate sets, and yes, she does has cleavage.

    Lego's getting ready to release a new Space Police line, so I'm wondering if that's what they'll use for the space faction.

    Historically, the Lego games have had their cutscenes done in the game engine, and those shots seem to be somewhat beyond the 3D capabilities of the DS, which are more along the lines of

    In any case, I don't think that the first image is literally from the DS since the resolution is too high, to say nothing of those giant Lego shots.

    I had a Lite a while ago (right after Portrait of Ruin came out), but I was forced to sell it to make rent after I got laid off from the shitty job I had at the time.

    Ridge Racer on the bus was so awesome.

    Namco owns it. Ridge Racer DS is actually a port of Ridge Racer 64. It's a lot closer to the original game that the PSP version is, but is not anywhere near as visceral.

    But we're sorta getting offtopic I guess.

    Oh man oh man oh man!

    If they like you build your bases from scratch, like a virtual toybox full of Lego, I will buy the game just for that. Fuck the combat and the strategy and everything else, I just want to build gigantic castles with no limit of the pieces I own.

    Also, I am hoping that they bring back all of the old factions that don't seem to exist anymore. Stuff like the old Black Knights, Wolfpack, and Majesto. I loved Castle Legos when I was a kid. Little dragons with the hole in their mouth where you could mount the fire piece, little brown bows and arrows for my forest dudes, glow in the dark ghosts.

    Fuck yes, this stuff was the best. I remember getting knights with the helmet with a visor that could open and close, it was the coolest thing in the world. The castles I built were the most fun I had as a kid.

    My brother built a giant castle one time and made up a game pretty similar to Warhammer where we each had armies trying to defend/storm the castle, and each one could move a certain number of dots each turn etc.

    I remember doing that. We'd take the Lego bucket and each build a small base and try to destroy eachother. But we ran out of Lego men so we used the Lego men as super powered generals and just used coloured bricks as the men. It was awesome.
