scenarios in evergreen themes that include LEGO Castle, LEGO Pirates and LEGO
Space. Produced by TT Games, developed by Hellbent Games and published by Warner
Bros. Interactive Entertainment, LEGO Battles pulls three LEGO themes together
to create a unique extension of the LEGO build-and-play experience that stays
true to the customization and humor that are the foundation of LEGO videogames.
The gameis scheduled to be available this summer. 

LEGO Battles offers a new kind of "build and battle" LEGO gameplay. Through six
distinct story lines, players build their own LEGO bases and battle teams as
they engage in over 70 different levels, mixing and matching units to create the
ultimate customized LEGO squad. These unique LEGO battles teams see pirate
swordsmen fighting side-by-side with wizards and aliens; dragons battling
ninjas; and pirate ships launching broadsides against spacecraft and knights!
Players can also challenge friends on the battlefield in multiplayer mode
through wireless DS multi-card play. 

"LEGO Battles offers players the action-packed and humor-filled gameplay that
make LEGO games great, along with the added bonus of linked multiplayer battles
on DS," said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. "We are excited
to introduce a new LEGO videogame experience to fans and young gamers and look
forward to expanding upon the beloved toy lines."
