LEGO is launching its previously mobile-only Smash Bros clone game on other platforms in the next few weeks. LEGO Brawls was previously only available on iOS and Android and is now expected to launch by the end of August,
LEGO Brawls is a side-scrolling beat-em-up that features over-the-top combat against other players. If you have ever played a Super Smash Bros game, LEGO Brawls will feel right at home for you.
The game gives the player control over their very own LEGO character which they can customize and upgrade. Players can mix and match a range of LEGO parts together to create some unique brawlers and even save loadouts to make it easier to swap between them all.
Publisher Bandai Namco says the console ports of the game will feature higher visual fidelity and new challenges to complete.
“Players can compete with everything from baguettes and pie cannons to boomboxes and rocket fists. With a range of multiplayer modes, unique challenges, and win conditions, all members of the family can join in the competitive brick-bashing fun,” the company adds.
Matches boast up to eight players in the arena at any given time and there’s also a co-op mode between two, three and four players. Each level has also been carefully created after iconic LEGO sets so fans of the toy brand will notice all the smaller details too.
We don’t have an exact release date yet for the game but Bandai Namco says it is expected to release in “late summer”. We don’t measure time in seasons here so that is by the end of August. LEGO Brawls will also be a paid game on PS4, PS5, Xbox and Switch. Unlike its mobile port which is free-to-play, the console version will cost you $39,99.
