This app uses augmented reality thanks to Apple’s ARKit to bring your LEGO to real life. Here’s what you can do:

  • Mix Realities: Bring a physical LEGO® NINJAGO® set to life with an action-packed AR game scene.
  • Master Ninja Skills: Control your Ninjago hero and put your combat skills to the test. Stay in the action as long as you can!
  • Play with Friends: Team up with a friend to play in the same AR space around your physical LEGO® sets. Work together and help each other defeat the Dragon Hunters.
  • Be Creative: Design, place and share objects and power-ups with friends to create unique strategies for taking on the enemy.
