LEGO Brawls – Ver. ??? (Ninjago: Dragons Rising Update)

  • Release date: June 15th 2023 (North America) / June 16th 2023 (Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:

Set in the Valley of Lost Things, this brand new LEGO® NINJAGO® level is hit by MergeQuakes that cause the level layout and the platforms surrounding the control point to shift, making it more difficult to brawl for control of the Dragon Cores.

Game Objective: Dragon Cores

Players must control the point at the top of the Rookery and fill the Vict-o-meter to earn a Dragon Core. At the end of each round, the mighty dragon Jiro presents the winning team with a charged core.

Dragon Core Pedestals

Three pedestals for each team are attached to each side of the control point. Each time a team wins a round, Jiro delivers a Dragon Core to one of their pedestals, starting on the outside and moving toward the center. The first team to collect three wins!

MergeQuake Transitions

At the beginning of each round, the mighty dragon Jiro will trigger a MergeQuake. The terrain of the level will change, moving the control point or otherwise changing the terrain around it to create a new and challenging brawling scenarios!


Discover the brand new theme and collect 16 all-new minifigures, power-ups and emotes from LEGO® NINJAGO®: Dragons Rising!


Dragon Power!
  • Power up Dragon Cores in a new fast-paced, round-based level featuring the mighty dragon, Jiro.
  • The first team to power up 3 Dragon Cores wins!
  • But watch out, MergeQuakes will quickly change the level and the tide of the brawl.
Go Ninja!
  • Collect 16 new minifigures including ninjas-in-training, Arin and Sora.
  • Taunt your enemies with 4 new emotes
  • Watch for 2x stud bonus events throughout the summer!

LEGO Brawls – Ver. ???

  • Release date: April 1st 2023 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:

The Base Race game mode is a unique twist on the classic LEGO Brawls gameplay. In this mode, players must work together as a team to collect as many bricks as possible and use them to build their team’s tower. One catch – players can also attack the other team’s base to steal their bricks. The game mode is a solid mix of strategy and skill. Players must balance between collecting bricks and attacking the enemy base.

Royal Rumble Basics

Compete in teams of four to collect the most bricks and build youteam’s medieval tower. The first team to gather (and hold onto) 200 bricks to complete their tower wins. But if both teams get over 200 bricks, a “Tie Break!” is initiated and one team must get the other team’s tower below the threshold to win.

By Hook or By Crook

Mine resources to collect bricks! Trees provide 25 bricks before they disappear, but you have to wait for them to replenish before you can mine them again. The rock quarry has unlimited bricks but takes more effort to mine. Watch out for the minecarts full of gold or TNT! Gold minecarts will increase in value over time (watch the compass to see what it’s worth), while TNT minecarts will deplete an enemy base of -25 bricks. But be careful! TNT minecarts become more volatile as the game progresses and could explode on you.

Storming the Castle

Players can also attack the other team’s base to collect bricks. Only the completed part of an enemy base can be attacked. It is essential to maintain control of your tower’s area to protect your base and prevent the other team from poaching your bricks! Bonus – players are healed while standing at their base depositing bricks, so protecting home base has its extra advantages.

Jousting for Position

With resources to gather and enemy bases to attack, the race is on to see which team will emerge victorious. The game mode introduces a new scoring system to LEGO Brawls – players earn points for depositing resources, eliminating other players, and damaging an opponent’s tower. It’s essential to work together strategically as a team to come out on top.


LEGO Brawls is also introducing new LEGO Castle themed content to collect – three new chapters that contain 12 minifigures, plus melee weapons and emotes. These are a must-have for fans of the game who want to expand their collection and add some royal flair to their gameplay. Collect all the new content and become the true king or queen of the castle!


Players can now see icons that represent different powerup attributes. Icon attributes show up on: the customization screen, during the unlock sequence, and on the collection screen. Use them to craft the ultimate loadouts for your brawlers! A Powerup Attributes Guide can be located in Help → Hints & Tips → Powerups → Last Slide.
