Lego Ninjago: Nindroids
Lego Ninjago: Nindroids is an Action-adventure game for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. It is a sequel to the 2011 Nintendo DS title Lego Battles: Ninjago, and both games in the series are developed by Hellbent Games and co-published by TT Games.
The game contains 30 levels consisting of puzzles and battle sequences.
The game will follow the same plot as the third season of the animated television series Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. In the game, the player assumes the role of a Spinjitsu Master and is tasked with defending the New Ninjago City from the enemy Overlord's evil Nindroid army.
The first game in the Ninjago series, Lego Battles: Ninjago, achieved worldwide sales totaling over two million units. Due in part to the substantial sales of the first game, a sequel titled Lego Ninjago: Nindroids was announced on March 24, 2014, making it the second video game to be based on the Lego Ninjago line of play sets. The game's announcement also comes after the success of the 2014 theatrical film The Lego Movie. In February 2014, there also were reports of Warner Bros. debating whether to greenlight a Lego Ninjago film, or hold off on one until after the release of The Lego Movie 2. At the time of the game's announcement, the publisher did not specify any information regarding the official release date, but Nintendolife reported that the game will see release in the Summer of 2014.
