Although LEGO Battles for Nintendo DS was announced back in February, details so far have been sparse.
Kotaku had a five-minute look at the game yesterday and has some pre-release impressions.

In traditional RTS fashion, the player draws a box around their Lego units and clicks on places for them to move to or attack. A pull-down menu enables the player to build to build appropriately-themed Lego structures: towers and factories and the like. There was no drag-and-drop Lego construction, but manual block-building hasn’t been much of a component of any of the recent Lego games.
Our speculation back in February that the images we had then were pre-rendered cutscenes and not real game-play turns out to be true. Oh well, not surprising.
LEGO Battles will be available in June.
