LEGO Battles: Ninjago coming to DS this spring

If you love LEGO and you wish you were a ninja (who doesn’t?), LEGO Battles: Ninjago for the Nintendo DS is right up your alley.

The game will be releasing this spring, and focuses on LEGO Ninja who use the art of “Spinjitzu” to turn into tornadoes to crush their enemies. Whatever happened to shurkien and katanas?

LEGO Battles: Ninjago will have two campaigns — good and evil — along with a set of multiplayer modes. The title is being developed by Hellbent Games, and produced by master of all things LEGO games, TT Games.

It’s out this spring, and if you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of Ninjago, don’t lose sleep over it: the line of toys just launched today.
