In a recent tweet, LEGO unveiled some major upcoming plans, which are on the horizon for later this year. Whilst the addition to their company is expected to be one of the biggest of all time, we’ve compiled a guide regarding the LEGO Augmented Reality sets, app, and Hidden Side release date below. However, prior to that, let’s quickly address any confusions or concerns you may have.

We know what you’re thinking. Augmented Reality has nothing to do with LEGO, right? Wrong. In fact, it’s probably going to play a predominant part in its future if this initial test goes well. The upcoming addition is significantly more straightforward than you may think. All you’ll be required to do is to grab your phone, download the LEGO Augmented Reality app and uncover the secrets each of the eight sets hold.
Whilst LEGO Augmented Reality, or AR, as many like to call it, may come across as a surprise to some, the experience has been around for quite a while, just not compatible with LEGO. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re without a doubt going to remember Pokemon GO, the AR game which took the world by storm in 2016. Of course, LEGO AR isn’t directly going to be related to Pokemon GO. Although, the company’s plans will certainly be to go down the same path and hopefully follow the game’s astonishing success.
LEGO Hidden Side Sets
A variety of LEGO Hidden Side sets are on the horizon. Fans can have a look at the images for the upcoming LEGO Hidden Side sets at Brick Pals. The eight initial sets are:
- 70418 Lab
- 70419 Boat
- 70420 Graveyard
- 70421 Truck
- 70422 Diner
- 70423 Bus
- 70424 Train
- 70425 High School
Augmented Reality LEGO App Release Date
Looking forward to LEGO Hidden Side? The Augmented Reality LEGO App release date has been officially confirmed to be released in August 2019!
One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be an interesting ride! LEGO has got experimental in the past. For example, you may remember their “toys-to-life” concept and their host of other integrations. Although, nothing has ever been on par with this.
