As part of the Future Games Show, LEGO and Thunderful have announced LEGO Bricktales, a new puzzle game that tasks you with completing a series of objectives across 5 LEGO-themed diorama biomes - these include a deep jungle, a sun-drenched desert, a bustling city corner, a medieval castle, and tropical Caribbean islands.
In order to solve puzzles and help the LEGO minifigures, you'll be building potential solutions brick-by-brick to come up with the most efficient object possible - as demonstrated in the trailer above, this might not always work out!
Each puzzle will come with its own set of bricks to utilise, helping alleviate the difficulty for newcomers, but you'll be building everything from purely aesthetic creations to physics-based models like cranes and gyrocopters.
Dieter Schoeller, Vice-President of Publishing at Thunderful, had this to say about the announcement:
“After more than two years, it feels incredible to finally announce what we have been working on behind closed doors. We’re honored to have this opportunity to collaborate with the largest toy brand worldwide. With LEGO Bricktales, we’ve made it our mission to tap into what it is that makes LEGO play so special. Our intuitive brick-by-brick building mechanic allows players to engage with LEGO bricks in a video game the same way the toys have been inspiring people’s imagination and creativity for decades.”
At the time of writing, specific platforms have not yet been announced for LEGO Bricktales, but we're pretty confident that we'll see it come to the Switch.

Lego Bricktales looks like it'll be a fun alternative to the usual style of LEGO game, similar to 2021's LEGO Builder's Journey, but will you be picking this one up if it comes to Switch? Let us know!
