Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and The Lego Group are launching three videogames for 2013 based on Lego’s brand new toy property Legends of Chima.

The new fantasy adventure IP, which spans construction sets, vehicles, and TV content, is set in a mythical land inhabited my magical animal tribes including Lion, Eagle, Crocodile and Gorilla.

LEGO Legends of Chima: Speedorz by TT Games and 4T2 launches January 3 for iOS devices and online at lego.com. The racing mini-game lets players compete as their favorite Chima characters and features unlockables and customization options.

The TT Games-developed LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval’s Journey is set to launch for Nintendo’s 3DS and Sony’s PlayStation Vita this summer and for Nintendo DS in fall 2013. The game follows the adventures of title character, the warrior Laval, and his allies in a journey of good versus evil.

Also launching for fall 2013 is LEGO Legends of Chima Online, a kid-friendly, free-to-play virtual world developed by WB Games Montréal. The site will allow kids to customize their own kingdom in the world of Chima, embark on missions with Laval, earn rewards and build weapons and gadgets with LEGO bricks.
