Warner Bros. and TT Games are taking a different approach for their next project. The companies today jointly announced Lego: Legends of Chima, an entirely new intellectual property that will span three different titles for various platforms.
Lego: Legends of Chima is composed of three different experiences, the first of which carries a subtitle of "Speedorz." A racing minigame developed by TT Games and 4T2, Lego: Legends of Chima: Speedorz is available today at Lego.com and will arrive for iOS devices tomorrow.
The next is Lego: Legends of Chima: Laval's Journey. Also developed by TT Games, this title is due out for the PlayStation Vita (summer 2013) and Nintendo 3DS (fall 2013). The game has players embarking on an adventure into the world of Chima where brave warrior Laval and company are called into a battle.
Third, Lego: Legends of Chima Online is a free-to-play online game developed by WB Games Montreal. It is due out in fall 2013 and will allow players to build and customize their own world, explore environments, and take on missions.
Lego: Legends of Chima is a departure from how Warner Bros. and TT Games have handled the Lego license recently. The most recent Lego games have been based on established properties, including Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, and others.
