While Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment publishes LEGO games across a variety of platforms, the games themselves are made by TT Games. TT Games has been releasing multiple LEGO games each year across a variety of platforms more recently including the Nintendo Switch. In past years, the mobile and handheld games were similar in many aspects. Now TT Games focusses on the Switch as a handheld with the full console experience brought to it while their games have stopped releasing on the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

It seems like they are getting serious about mobile platforms now with a big opening. TT Games Brighton is a new studio in the UK that has been opened specifically for LEGO games on mobile platforms. That’s a big committment to not just LEGO games but to mobile as a platform. Jason Avent who was the founder and former head of Boss Alien is the head of Studio at TT Games Brighton.

TT Games’ Managing Director Tom Stone believes that there’s a huge opportunity for LEGO games on mobile platforms. Playdemic was acquired by TT Games about 2 years ago and they are working on a new LEGO game for mobile. Jason Avent discusses how the new LEGO games for mobile will be accessible but still retain the TT Games charm through newer games. These will be built from the ground up for mobile platforms and not ported.

The best case scenario here is mobile platforms get unique LEGO experiences and the big movie tie ins the same day as other platforms. Given how successful Minecraft [$6.99] is, a version of LEGO Worlds is a no brainer but it remains to be seen how this situation plays out. I’m excited to see more LEGO experiences come to iOS and Android devices.

    I've absolutely loved the mobile LEGO games ported from handhelds, especially LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What I haven't loved is all those cheap F2P mini-games AND the fact that half of the premium LEGO experiences bit the dust with iOS 11. I sure hope we get more handheld-like experiences that I can pay $5-10 (or more) for upfront and enjoy completely. I'm still hopeful that we'll see a game for The Last Jedi... Maybe even some more full experiences based of other IPs like Scooby-Doo or TMNT.

      The LEGO mobile games are a lot of fun! TMNT would be great!

    • Dailon Huskey

      The Warner Bros releases are better since they are premium so I hope they go that direction but not expecting it

      • curtneedsaride

        Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. I don't want to deal with F2P LEGO games too.

      Jurassic World is my favorite one along with Star Wars Complete Saga... don't have force awakens need it too

      • curtneedsaride

        Oh yeah! Jurassic World is such a huge package. That one is good. I need to revisit it later this year, when my FFXV and Monster Hunter fanboying subsides. 🙂

        I just need a phone with more space and that’s gonna happen soon but for now I’m waiting to see how much space XV is gonna be on my present phone it will kind of suck until I upgrade but it’s alright
        What will be fun with my new phone is getting to go back and play games I ran out of space for and forgot about ha there are many I’m sure

      • curtneedsaride

        Yeah, having the big iPhone X is great. Enough space for all the games I can imagine playing, photos/videos, audio/video content, and space to fill up when my son arrives in a couple months!
