All Articles: Lego Ninjago: Nindroids
After busting up the 3DS eShop during “Mega May,” Capcom’s longtime mascot will take a swipe at the Wii U in August. Every week, a classic Mega Man game will be added to the Wii U eShop. Best of all, they’re kicking things off today, on what is technically the last day of July, with Mega Man Battle Network. Battle Network Mega Man’s first foray into RPGs and it launched an entire series of games as well as multiple spinoffs. Perhaps we’ll see some of them again over the next few weeks.
A different kind of robot warrior stars in this week’s major 3DS release, Lego Ninjago: Nindroids. The latest Lego game from WB Games and TT Games, it’s based on the television show of the same name and transports the Lego Ninjago ninjas into a sci-fi setting.
Other games added to the eShop today include….
- XType Plus (Wii U), a vertically-scrolling shooter.
- Frederic: Resurrection of Music (Wii U), a piano-playing game of “musical duels.”
- IQ Test (Wii U), a puzzling game to challenge your intellect.
- Tangram Attack (Wii U), a Tangram-type puzzler.
- Steel Empire (3DS), a portable remake of the Genesis/GBA shooter.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
One of the PS3’s greatest games is now available on the PS4 as Sony has added The Last of Us Remastered to the PlayStation Store in their latest weekly update. The Remastered edition of The Last of Us includes everything that made the original game great as well as both Map Packs (Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories) and the Left Behind single-player expansion.
This week also marks the beginning of the PlayStation Store Play promotion and Cellar Door’s Rogue Legacy is the first game on the docket. Rogue Legacy is a platformer with roguelike elements (which the developer refers to as “rogue-lite”). The game is Cross-Play compatible (PS3, PS4, and Vita) and features a procedurally generated quest with “wicked sweet fart jokes.”
Speaking of the Vita, several new titles are now available for Sony’s handheld, but this week’s big new release is Ratchet & Clank Collection, a portable compilation of the duo’s first three PS2 adventures. If you’d prefer something a little newer, WB Games released Lego Ninjago: Nindroids, based on the brand-new television show, for the Vita yesterday.
Take heed fellow video game fans, the month of July is almost over! It’s been a rough few weeks for the retail release report, but 2014’s seventh month looks to go out with a bit of a bang. That’s because Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Remastered, a PS4 re-release of the 2013 blockbuster, will be available in stores this week. If you haven’t experienced the story of Joel, Ellie, and their fight to survive a post-apocalyptic America yet, now’s the time.
Also available this is the PC version of Sacred 3, the latest entry in the action RPG series that began in 2008. Sacred 3 will also be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in early August.
Finally this week, WB Games and TT Games will bring Lego Ninjago: Nindroids to the 3DS and Vita. The game sequel, which is based on the animated series Lego Ninja Rebooted, will add a sci-fi twist to the popular Lego line.
August will be better, I promise.
Lego’s popular Ninjago line will receive a second video game adaptation this Summer when WB Games brings Lego Ninjago: Nindroids to the 3DS and Vita.
Developed by Hellbent Games (in partnership with TT Games), Nindroids will include 30 levels of action and puzzle-based gameplay adapted from events in the Lego Ninjago Rebooted animated show. Players will train in the art of special moves and combo attacks to become a “Spinjitsu Master” as they defend New Ninjago City:
Lego Ninjago: Nindroids players will face their greatest challenge as they work to protect New Ninjago City from the Overlord’s Nindroid army. Infiltrate Borg Tower, fly the Kai Fighter and face off against the evil Tech Wu. Take to the streets in Cole’s Earth Mech and Jay’s Thunder Raider, defend the skies in Zane’s Ninjacopter, escape Pythor on Lloyd’s Golden Cycle, and enter the Digiverse for an epic final battle. Story mode features additional favorite characters like Nya, Sensei Garmadon, Samurai X, and PIXAL.
WB Games also announced that Lego Battles: Ninjago, which was released exclusively for the DS in 2011, has sold two million copies to date.
