LEGO Worlds Secures a Nintendo Switch Release Date

We’ve known LEGO Worlds was also coming to Nintendo Switch for a while. Now we know when.

Look back at LEGO’s history of games released for Nintendo platforms and you’ll find a long line of titles dating back to the explosion of popularity in Wii times and enduring even through the Wii U rough patch (around 10 LEGO games reached that platform, in fact). That tradition is set to continue, with a port of LEGO City Undercover already available on the Nintendo Switch and more games announced as coming soon. One of them is a port of LEGO Worlds.

Currently available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, LEGO Worlds is coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 8, 2017. The official date comes courtesy of a LEGO Worlds Twitter account post, which mentions a MSRP of $39.99 USD and notes the inclusion of the base game and two DLC packs.

Released this March on the other platforms, LEGO Worlds features procedurally-generated worlds fashioned out of LEGO bricks. Players can manipulate the blocks as they see fit, building a world using an interface and tools reminiscent of Minecraft. The base game has received a theme pack and other ongoing support from its developer, and the Classic Space Pack launched earlier this week for $3.99 USD.

Minecraft has always felt a bit like a glorified LEGO set, so LEGO Worlds is arguably a natural expansion of the popular LEGO franchise. It faces stiff competition, not only from Minecraft, but from The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game (due on September 22) and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 (due November 14). If you have room in your life for plenty of digital LEGO blocks, it’s clear Warner Bros. Games has you covered.

        It seems very shallow based on what I've looked at. You can kind of tell based on the types of YouTube videos and streams out there...everyone seems awfully bored playing it and they don't do much other than showing off the stuff they've unlocked, using vehicles to blow terrain up, and sculpting things using the building tools.

        Have you played Minecraft? Because that has crafting and replayability...

      I rented it and after the first 4 adventure planets you get to do it's just randomized worlds ala minecraft.
      If there were more of these adventure planets it would have been a lot cooler but alas there aren't =/
