Development

Boxes for Space Police and Castle sets released in 2009 advertised "LEGO Space: The Videogame" and "LEGO Castle: The Videogame", respectively, while Racers set boxes advertised LEGO Racers: The Video Game. None of these games were advertised further, and remained a mystery for some time. While LEGO Racers: The Video Game was canceled, the Space and Castle games (as well as an unadvertised Pirates game) were merged into LEGO Battles:

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.


The game's sequel, LEGO Battles: Ninjago, started development as LEGO Battles 2, before soon shifting to being primarily Ninjago themed. As in the final game, this early concept for LEGO Battles 2 featured an isometric camera angle.[1]
