Warner Brothers Interactive
2856252 LEGO Battles: Ninjago, released as LEGO Ninjago: The Video Game in the United Kingdom, is a Ninjago Video Game and the follow-up to LEGO Battles. It was published by Warner Brothers, developed by Hellbent Games and produced by TT Games. It has two single-player campaign modes - both good and evil - and multiplayer modes. The sequel to this game was released in the summer of 2014, named LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids.
The story features players retrieving powerful weapons and skirmishing with their enemies, as well as featuring dragons and cameos from LEGO Battles characters. In skirmish mode, the player selects seven soldiers and a builder to control. Spinjitzu is used in the game by the Ninja and Sensei Wu as special attacks..
The gameplay is similar to that of the original, with the main difference being controlling a small force of seven rather than larger armies. Players collect studs to buy characters from defeating enemies, smashing scenery, and collecting some just lying around. Other collectibes are red power bricks and minikits, used to unlock new characters to buy.
Builders build buildings and collect bricks, with a maximum number of six builders at once. The player also controls 7 unique heroes. The beginning of a level only has the original form of each hero available. Each hero also has 2 alternative forms. For example, Kai starts out in his blacksmith clothes with short sword, in Level one he wears his ninja garb with a ninja sword, and in Level 2 he is in his DX form with the golden Sword of Fire. Another example would be the Samurai Warrior beginning on foot, then on a horse in level one, and with 2 archers that follow him in level two. The 2 alternative forms are better in speed, health, and attack.
- Sensei Wu's second form has the same outfit as the first form, except that he has the Sword of Fire, and wears his Black Kimono in his third form.
- Nya wears a non-physical white dress in her first form, her red dress in her second form, and in a nurse's outfit in her third form.
