Event Coverage: Lego Nexo Knights Launching

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, this is Jack from Tech-Critter, this time, accompanied by John bringing you the coverage of the Lego Nexo Knights launching which was held at Mid Valley's Center Court over the weekend. Yes, we do love Lego in case if you're wondering.

Featuring five young brave knights based in the Kingdom of Knighton who take it upon themselves to unlock exclusive power-ups and build new shields in order to battle the royal court's evil jester - Jestro and a cast of monsters to restore peace. The story really comes to life through the release of various Lego building sets, a 20-episode animated television series and a digital gaming app that fuels a compelling story-driven game play.

Speaking at the event, Dick Yoong, Country Manager of Lego Malaysia said, “Technology is constantly evolving and has inevitably impacted the way the younger generation plays today. We have introduced Lego Nexo Knights to enable children and Lego fans of all ages to relish an augmented play experience in both online and offline realms as they immerse themselves in the world of Knighton to be the best knights.

Kevin Hagino, Senior Regional Brand Manager of Lego Malaysia, then showed us more about the products that Lego had to offer following the release of the Lego Nexo Knights. Shortly after that, Clay Moorington, a Lego Nexo Knight, had a surprise photo session with all the kids there which really hyped them all up!

Later on the day, all of us had the chance to dive into the virtual reality experience that Lego had to offer. There was also a designated area that kids got to try their hands on copious amounts of Lego and their creativity really shined through.
