The LEGO Battles Merge
Well, that's one mystery solved. Yay! Now, to see if we can find out what happened to the canceled 2009 LEGO Racers game...
Sorry for the slow reply but we are very busy right now. Thanks for the kind words about our LEGO games. I am glad you like them. I will do my best to answer your question.
You are correct. Originally LEGO Battles was developed as three separate games: LEGO Space, LEGO Castle and LEGO Pirates. These titles were to be sold as individual DS games but allow you to connect any of the games together in multiplayer. You could trade units with your friends from the other two carts and win units by competing in multiplayer games against the other carts. Ultimately WB determined they wanted one bigger game instead of the separate games so we merged them into LEGO Battles. We lost a little bit merging into the single game as we used to have some microgames that allowed you to win a chance a units at the end of each game but ultimately I think LEGO Battles is a much bigger and stronger game.
We are currently working on LEGO Friends but unfortunately I cannot discuss any unannounced projects we may be working on. I agree that LEGO and RTS are a nice fit and I am glad to see we have a strong fan base out there!
