Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin Sneaks Its Way Onto Portables Spring 2015

TT Games’s Lego titles may get attention for the enormous franchises it depicts, but games like Lego City Undercover and Lego Battles: Ninjago are proof that the developer is just as dedicated to pursuing the toy's original properties. That trend continues next spring with the release of the newly announced Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin.

Shadow of Ronin is an untold story set in the universe of the Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu TV show. The game introduces a new threat to the Ninjas in the form of Ronin, a nefarious villain who steals their elemental powers. The Ninjas will have to venture to lands old and new to regain their powers, and learn devastating new combo moves, if they’re to thwart Ronin.

Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin is slated for release in spring 2015 on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

 

Our Take
While I'm not familiar with the Lego Ninjago property, TT Games has been on a roll with its Lego games. I'm sure there'll be enough in Shadow of Ronin for gamers of all varieties to enjoy.
