The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game’s gameplay is very similar to that of other TT Games-developed Lego games, as well as its two predecessors: Nindroids and Shadow of Ronin. As with The Lego Movie Videogame, environments are made entirely out of Lego bricks. The player would control 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.Over 101 playable characters are featured.
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.
