This Fall’s Most Unlikely Video Game: L.O.L. Surprise!

I’ve spent a fair chunk of change on L.O.L. Surprise!, a collection of dolls that you buy randomly in ‘blind bag’ balls, thanks to my youngest daughter’s obsession with them – but I have to admit I didn’t see a video game coming…

Nighthawk Interactive and MGA Entertainment, Inc. are bringing out L.O.L. Surprise! Remix: We Rule the World on November 3rd, exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.

I’ll be entirely honest here, this isn’t a game for me – but if you’re in the same situation with a kid in that age group these things are aimed at, I figured you’d want to know this is coming.

Who knows, if the game is fun it might actually save you some money to boot.

Here’s the press release:
