LEGO Friends welcomes players to Heartlake City, where Summer fun awaits! The game is all about freedom and the ability to customize your character, express yourself, explore and make new friends. In fact, building friendships is key. Players can join others on special adventures, such as helping Emma take pictures for her next newspaper article or reviewing song choices for Andrea’s next performance. As they do so, their friendship levels with each character grows and eventually “true friend” status will be reached, at which point a Heartlake City celebration is in order.
This momentous occasion can be captured by using the in-game camera mechanic, allowing you to solidify the memory and add it to your own personal scrapbook. Additionally, players can care for a variety of pets. They can train and groom them in preparation for the local pet show, with each pet also having a special skill that players can use to aid them in their adventures. Plus, players can trade places with the fun-loving pets to play the game from the animal’s perspective.
