Lego Battles – not indie/retro – but I’ll bend the rules

If a game somehow involves Lego or Ghostbusters, it can always get a bit of lovin’ from me. (Well, if you can’t break your own guidelines… )

Lego Battles had previously escaped my attention. Probably because it’s a Nintendo DS title, and I don’t have one of those. But I’ve just seen the trailer, and the idea certainly grabs me.

Lego Battles is an RTS game, in which you build and defend bases using characters from the LEGO Castle, Pirates and Space themes. According to an old press release, there’ll be “pirate swordsmen fighting side-by-side with wizards and aliens; dragons battling ninjas; and pirate ships launching broadsides against spacecraft and knights!” Sounds pretty good.

I just wish it was coming to PC. Sigh. I’m sure it has the potential to be quite playable (via the DS’ stylus) but having little lego wars on a much larger (PC monitor-sized) screen would be even better. Oh well…

For those of you who DO have a Nintendo DS, there’ll be a single-player mode, plus the ability to play local multiplayer battles.

Judging by the “out June 2009″… it must be due any minute now…
