Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has announced that they are delving into the vast Lego universe to bring Lego Brawls, a family-friendly platform fighting game similar to Super Smash Bros, to consoles worldwide.
This light-hearted brawler puts players in control of customizable Minifigures in a multi-player brawler with levels inspired by iconic Lego sets.
In true Lego fashion, Lego Brawls gives players a slew of customization options to mix and match official Lego bricks and create unique Minifigure brawlers, complete with custom load-outs and power-ups tailored to each player’s preference and play style.
Players can compete with everything from baguettes and pie cannons to boomboxes and rocket fists. With a range of multiplayer modes, unique challenges, and win conditions, all members of the family can join in the competitive brick-bashing fun.
Players in Lego Brawls can play offline with friends and family or go for global glory as they climb to the top of online leaderboards.
Multiplayer modes in the game allow local play for up to eight players on the Nintendo Switch and up to four players on PlayStation. Online modes allow for eight-player matches and co-ops between two to four players. A variety of fan-favorite Lego themes and sets are available as colorful backdrops, making this the ultimate team brawler for Lego fans of all ages.
The game is being developed by Red Games Co (Transformers: Tactical Arena). It was previously released for mobile devices and will now be coming to consoles.
Lego Brawls is slated for release on PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch in the late Summer of 2022.
