LEGO and Nintendo Announce LEGO City Stories

Just heard the news that earlier today, LEGO and Nintendo announced LEGO City Stories at this major year’s electronics expo – E3.

It’s going to be produced by TT Games who has produced several of the current LEGO titles including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Ninjago, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

The big news though is that it will be on the Nintendo Wii U and the Nintendo handheld 3DS. The Wii U is Nintendo’s new console that was also announced today. LEGO City Stories will be a launch title for the Nintendo Wii U, available sometime next year. It sounds like some kind of sandbox/open world game based on the LEGO City line and will be focused on vehicles, since vehicles featured so prominently in the announcement images. I’m guessing that all of the marina/aquatic stuff we’ve been seeing lately will tie in. Would be nice to see some LEGO train action as well.

You can see in the video (posted below), among other things, LEGO City Police, Fire, and construction vehicles.
