lego brawls game

Namco Bandai has announced that it will bring LEGO Brawls to consoles later this year. This includes PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Previously an Apple Arcade exclusive, this platform fighting game has a lot in common with Nintendo’s own Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. However, what sets LEGO Brawls apart is its wealth of character customisation options, allowing you to mix and match minifigure parts from various LEGO ranges.

Having played a few rounds on Apple Arcade back at launch, it offered quick rounds of melee mayhem fun, enticing players with a hoard of unlockable LEGO parts to tweak their character.

Developed by Red Games CO. this isn’t a free-to-play title as some may have expected. LEGO Brawls will feature online cross-play between different platforms and will be supported by upcoming seasonal content.
