LEGO Friends has been announced for 3DS and DS by Warner Bros. and is in development at TT Games, in partnership with Hellbent Games.
LEGO Friends will offer :creative gameplay based on the fun and excitement found in the already-popular LEGO Friends collection of building sets,” which launched in 2012. It will introduce new adventures in 2013.
“We are very proud to welcome even more girls into the world of LEGO videogames with a title based on the best-selling LEGO Friends line,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “LEGO Friends allows players to build personal fun adventure while expressing their individual style and personality along the way.”
LEGO Friends takes place in Heartlake City where players can explore areas and activities such as perfecting “a dance routine in the studio, taking a few shots on goal at football practice, or visiting the store to get cool items to customize their character, as they build friendships with their five new friends.”
Players meet new friends and join them on special adventures, such as: “helping Emma take pictures for her next newspaper article or reviewing song choices for Andrea’s next performance, they grow their friendship levels with each character,” according to the PR.
Once players reach “true friend” status with all of the characters, they are able to build a Heartlake Celebration for them.
A variety of different pets can be trained and groomed and entered into a pet show. Each pet has a special skill that players can use to help them in their adventures. Players can also trade places with the pets to play the game from the animal’s perspective.
An in-game camera for photo ops can be used to create a scrapbook.
It’s out this fall.
