I’ve got a heavy fondness for all games (and all things) Lego, so this morning’s announcement that TT Games is returning with a new DS game that skips the license and explores Lego’s toy history comes as a very welcome surprise.
TT is partnering with Hellbent Games (who have previously primarily been support-side, helping to bring games like Supreme Commander to the Xbox 360) to create Lego Battles, in which you’ll team up players from the classic Lego Castle, Lego Pirates and Lego Space series to “build their own Lego bases and battle teams” — though just how hasn’t yet been explained.
Until that officially opens its doors, though, you can get a taste of online collaborative building/demolishing via Blockland — a game that shed its trademarkable skin shortly after its first release, but is still plugging along with its generic definitely-not-Lego colored blocks.
