Today I received the LEGO Ninjago Movie video game for the Nintendo Switch for free from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. I received it so that I could review it, make some videos with it and play it like crazy. I’ve been looking forward to this game because I love the LEGO games and also because the Ninjago Movie game has some interesting game dynamics. It also looks really cool. You not only fight as the different Ninjago characters but then you can also play as them in their Mechs. You can see in my livestream video from this afternoon that I was shocked that I went from training in the Dojo to flying a Mech but it was really intuitive to do so and it looked so cool flying around in these Mechs while switching between different characters and their Mechs. I was going to go and see the movie today but ran out of time. To be honest I don’t know all of the character’s names and I was also sent masks for each of the Ninja. But I can only really identify the Green Ninja. I will get better at this in the future. I also plan to do some more Livestreams of the game like the one below.
My first impressions of the game were that it was funny and fun to play. I got to play as a couple of different ninjas and played through chapters 1 and 2. I like how more new characters can be found and new abilities unlocked. The game is visually awesome. I do not know how to swim under the water yet to get more studs but I will figure it out. If you liked the movie then it is very likely that you will like this game. The game was released today on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
Brian over at Built from Bricks got the game as well ad we may do a Ninjago themed livestream next Thursday.
