Warner Bros. and TT Games have revealed the next installment in the increasingly popular LEGO series. The title isn't based on a popular TV series or movie - it's a completely new game, based on LEGO's new Legends of Chima line of figures which is set to launch in 2013.

The game - LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval's Journey, to give it its full title - is an adventure where players embark on an amazing quest into the world of Chima. Taking control of main character Laval, you must join your allies as you are called upon to fight for justice. It is one of three games being released in the newly announced Legends of Chima franchise this year, with the other two games launching on different platforms. Playing Laval's Journey will enable you to earn points and use alongside the other games, creating an incentive to play all three.

LEGO Legends of Chima is scheduled for a summer release on the 3DS this year, with an aim for release on the DS in the fall. We look forward to hearing more on this game, but what about you? Can the LEGO series remain as popular when it's not attached to a famous film or comic book series? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
