Lego Brawls let’s “Minifigure mayhem begin” on console and Switch on September 2, 2022.
Lego Brawls – which, exactly as it says on the tin, is a brawler starring LEGO minifigs – supports one to four players, and online play for up to eight people. It was originally released as part of Apple Arcade’s ad- and microtransaction-free mobile line-up back in 2019, and is now making the leap to console and Nintendo Switch.
You can see it in action right here in this brief but colorful release date announce trailer:
In Lego Brawls, you’ll get to build the ultimate brawler, creating your own hero with “unique style, strategy, and personality”.
“A cactus with an attitude? A scrappy janitor ninja who happens to have fighting chickens? A sledgehammer-swinging clown with a few scores to settle? Sure! Build the ultimate brawler and level them up with unlockable content!” the game’s description teases.
“Dream up the ultimate Minifigure brawlers and bash your way through all of your favorite Lego themes in the first-team action brawler set in the LEGO universe,” explains PlayStation in the game’s store description, although it’s also coming to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
You’ll get to battle through iconic Lego settings, such as the swashbuckling shores of Barracuda Bay to the waterlogged caverns of Ninjago Seabound as well as the Wild West and the jungle. The more you explore, the more unlockable minifigures, power-ups, and emotes there are to collect.
There’s also a royale-style game mode where it’s “every-player-for-themself”.
