LEGO and Gameloft have unveiled a new mobile game, “LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed” which promises to bring together minifigures from the past 40 years of LEGO sets into a team-Battle RPG.
The game will challenge players to collect classic and modern LEGO minifigures and sets in digital form, then create a team and engage in battles and adventures. The development team even visited the LEGO Vault in Billund, Denmark to research classic sets, minifigures and instructions to help them faithfully recreate them within the game.
While not mentioned specifically, there’s no chance that LEGO Legacy isn’t a free to play kind of game, and free to play social RPGs aren’t exactly in short supply on the App Store.
But as I’ve said many times before, here’s the thing with mobile social RPGs – They may not differ a ton in terms of mechanics, but they typically provide a ton of fan service for whichever IP they’re based around. It’s also not the only LEGO mobile game on the horizon, as NimbleBit’s LEGO Tower is set to arrive on July 1st
