The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game is a Lego-themed action-adventure video game developed by TT Fusion and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Based on The Lego Ninjago Movie, it was released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, alongside the film, in North America on 22 September 2017, and worldwide on 20 October 2017.[1][2][3] It serves as the second spin-off video game and the third game in The Lego Movie franchise.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, TT Games announced the game would be available to redeem for free from 15 to 21 May 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.[4][5]

Gameplay[edit]

The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game's gameplay is very similar to that of other TT Games-developed Lego games,[6] as well as its two predecessors: Nindroids and Shadow of Ronin. As with The Lego Movie Videogame, environments are made out of Lego bricks. The player controls one of the main characters from a third-person perspective, primarily fighting enemies, solving puzzles, and collecting Lego 'studs', the game's form of currency. Using attack combinations in combat will multiply the number of studs earned. Unlike other Lego video games, which have two player cooperative modes, this game allows up four players to play in "Battle Maps" mode.[7][8] 102 playable characters are featured from both the film and the original series.

The game features eight locations from The Lego Ninjago Movie. Each location has a unique Challenge Dojo where players can test combat skills while battling increasingly tougher enemies.[9]

Reception[edit]

The game received generally mixed reviews upon release according to review aggregator Metacritic, with only the Xbox One version receiving "generally positive" reviews.[11]

German online video game magazine PS4 Source gave the game 7.4 out of 10 points, praising its multiplayer mode and sound, while criticizing the noticeable screen tearing and the low graphical improvements of the PlayStation 4 Pro version.[18]
