Lego video game franchise taps Minecraft

Posted by Mike Luttrell

After tackling such major brands as Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Wars, Lego is set to take on a whole new challenge.

And this one is a bit more of a solid fit for what Lego is best known for - building and construction, where the only limitation is your imagination.

This project won't have the name power that the other Lego video games did, but it will take the brand to a whole new level.

We're talking about the independent game Minecraft, a title that has gained a cult following for its ingenious and addicting play style.

In an official Lego blog post, the process was described as such: "Until now, the project has been in the LEGO Review—a stage before product development begins where a LEGO Jury evaluates the idea’s feasibility as a product and makes a decision. We’re happy to announce that the Minecraft project on LEGO Cuusoo has passed the LEGO review."

Minecraft has grown from a small project with a big dream to a huge community with more than 20 million registered users.

Bringing this vast game to a Lego-fied world is no easy task, but it is one that should pay off in droves.

"We can’t wait to show it to you—but it isn’t ready just yet. These things take time, so we appreciate your patience. More details are to come," said Lego.
