The juggernaut formerly known as LEGO is officially stepping into battle against Skylanders and Disney Infinity with their very own toy based video game titled LEGO Dimensions. Many speculated that this would be happening, and to finally have it confirmed is nothing short of awesome. But, before the excitement sets in, we have to take a step back and realize exactly what’s going on.
This is not a battle that will be easily won, either. The behemoth that Skylanders has become is one that shouldn’t be toyed with. See what I did there? And although Disney Infinity isn’t as popular as Activision’s money printer, it has the benefit of access to some of the most popular, well-recognized characters in all of entertainment. There is also Nintendo with their Amiibo, but they’re playing a completely different game that they’re still working the kinks out of. The thing is, that no matter what company you look at, Traveler’s Tales certainly has their work cut out for them.
There are, however, a few things that LEGO Dimensions could do in order to secure not only success for itself, but also inch ahead of the competition. It’s gonna be tough, but it can definitely be done.
