LEGO Hidden Side Sets Now Available for Pre-Order in UK and Other Parts of Europe

Our followers in the UK and the rest of Europe may be glad to know that the complete line of the LEGO Hidden Side building sets (all eight of them) is now available for pre-order at the UK portal of LEGO Shop@Home, and are slated to be released on August 1st.

These latest augmented reality sets are still not available in the US as of this posting, so we have to a bit patient before we see these sets arrive at our doorsteps. For the meantime, be sure to bookmark this page and check on the following links to know more about this latest fun and spooky theme from LEGO.

The LEGO Hidden Side invites kids to join a fearless team of ghost hunters, who dare see the unseen and help turn a haunted world back to normal, one ghost at a time. This new theme includes a series of “haunted” building sets full of awesome functionality and secret surprises that, on their own, provide the build and roleplay fun of any LEGO® theme. Activating the free augmented reality app brings the models to life, revealing a hidden world of interactive mysteries and challenges to solve. When combined, the two worlds make each other even more compelling and fun. The app also consists of a digital game that kids can play independent of the building set.

LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed Mobile Game Coming This Fall

LEGO seems to be investing a lot in mobile games recently. Following the announcement and promotions surrounding the LEGO Tower mobile game which will launch this summer, LEGO has officially announced another upcoming mobile game that will cater to LEGO fans of all ages. Developed in partnership with Gameloft, LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed features a team-battle, role-playing game where the player controls any of LEGO’s iconic and more recent minifigure characters in an expansive universe of LEGO’s original creations and 40 years of minifig history. The LEGO Group and Gameloft promise to deliver a one of a kind gaming experience where players get to be immersed in a vast world of LEGO characters and environments representing past and present favorites.

Check out the teaser trailer for the LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed as introduced by the legendary minifigure Captain Redbeard from 1989’s LEGO Pirates Forbidden Island (6270) set. Read on for the full press release courtesy of Gamespress.

Gameloft and the LEGO Group Unveil “LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed”

LEGO minifigure history at your fingertips: The first bricks of the upcoming LEGO mobile game are out of the box

Paris, May 23rd, 2019 – Gameloft, one of the world’s leading publishers of mobile games, and the LEGO Group today revealed the title of their upcoming game: LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed. This Team-Battle RPG, the first ever LEGO game of this genre, will bring to life 40 years of LEGO minifigure history and universes in a fun and epic way.

LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set in a whole new LEGO world where players will collect classic and modern LEGO minifigures and sets, form a party and engage in epic and fun team battles and adventures. The game will feature iconic, fan favorite universes from yesterday and today, recreated with incredible detail to please players of all ages, from the passionate collectors to those who want to bring back childhood memories.

A first glimpse of how the signature humor of the LEGO brand has been built into the game can be found in the teaser trailer, also revealed today. The beloved Captain Redbeard from Set 6270 (1989) emerges from his dusty box in the attic and sets sail for adventure after all these years… he may not be ready yet! Indeed, LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set to be released this Fall, but until then Gameloft Toronto will be adding content and completing features.

The studio has been working closely with the LEGO Group for several years, including visits to the LEGO Vault in Billund, Denmark where all the sets and minifigures ever created are archived. The team has been studying vintage instruction manuals and focusing all its skills to perfectly recreate every tiny detail that makes the LEGO experience so enjoyable and memorable. LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed will be faithful to the fun and creativity that make the LEGO brand one of the most beloved brands on Earth.

“LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is built to bring the enjoyment and fun that you once had, or still have, with LEGO toys,” stated Baudouin Corman, Chief Operating Officer at Gameloft. “We are excited to see these authentic and original LEGO characters from all eras come to life. We have been putting all our efforts, art and craft into this game as we want to delight all LEGO fans, whether their minifigures are tucked away in the attic or proudly shown in the living room.”

Sean McEvoy, Vice President of LEGO Games at the LEGO Group said: “LEGO Games have reached millions of LEGO fans of all ages for over 20 years, extending and amplifying the LEGO play universe. Enabling our fans to play epic battles with minifigures from our history is a great play promise we are delighted to offer. Gameloft has done fabulous work, maintaining every character’s unique personality and reflecting all the fun, creativity and humor of the LEGO brand in a mobile game.”

LEGO® Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is set to be released in Fall 2019 and will be regularly showcased to fans until then, beginning at Brickworld Chicago on June, 15th and 16th. Be sure to visit www.LEGOLEGACY.com to get the latest news on the game.
