Ninjago Movie Video Game
Photo-A-Day #4545

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.

More about the game launch below.

Ninja, go! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group today announced that The LEGO® NINJAGO® Movie Video Game is now available in the Americas for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and Steam. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game allows players to extend the non-stop action and humor of the new big-screen animated adventure The LEGO NINJAGO Movie, in theaters nationwide beginning today. Players can battle their way through waves of enemies with honor and skill as their favorite NINJAGO heroes – Lloyd, Nya, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Master Wu – to defend NINJAGO Island from Lord Garmadon and his Shark Army.

With new, powerful combat moves, players can jump into the action with adrenaline pumping fighting sequences that let them jump higher, kick harder, swing further and defy gravity to conquer their enemies. Players can master the art of Ninja-gility by running on walls, high-jumping and battling foes of NINJAGO to rank up and upgrade the ninja’s combat skills, and traverse across NINJAGO Island fluidly with parkour-like moves. The new combat moves include Rushing Boar, a dash attack to bridge the gap between characters, Floating Butterfly, a jump lunge attack that allows the ninja to leap and attack from above, Swooping Hawk, a jump slam attack, and Stinging Bee, a flurry of very fast strikes.

As they progress their combat skills and abilities, they will also be able to master the art of Spinjitzu – battling their way through waves of enemies with new combat techniques, maneuvers and skills, as well as elemental powers and upgradeable weapons unique to each Ninja. Players can combine all of them through the game.
