This is the seventh wave that the toys-to-life title has been treated to, which will be headlined by the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack and the Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack.
LEGO minifigures will now have a special, golden Toy Tag that will unlock a Battle Arena in the Adventure World of their matching entertainment brand. These are local, competitive split-screen instances for up to four players, with each having four gameplay modes to keep you entertained.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack
The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack will provide a complete movie-based gameplay experience with six action-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks to build the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) atop the LEGO Toy Pad. Players can build the Newt Scamander LEGO minifigure and help him find his escaped magical creatures in New York City and use a variety of spells, including Diffindo, Reparo and Lumos. The pack will also come with a 3-in-1 Niffler which can be rebuilt into the Sinister Scorpion and Vicious Vulture. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack will be the exclusive construction toy offering this holiday for the exciting expansion of J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World.
