It's out now...
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group have released the launch trailer for The LEGO Movie Videogame, which is out today for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
Tom Stone, Managing Director for TT Games Publishing, said: "We challenged ourselves to introduce a new element never-before-seen in any LEGO game and did that with environments made entirely out of LEGO bricks, giving players more authentic opportunities to interact with the world around them. This is a chance for every LEGO builder to collect LEGO instruction pages and harness the powers of the Master Builders."
Here's a synopsis, courtesy of the press release: The LEGO Movie Videogame takes players on an awesome adventure through fantastical LEGO worlds, including Bricksburg, Cloud Cuckoo Land and the Wild West of Flatbush Gulch. And for the first time ever in a LEGO game, all environments are made entirely of digital LEGO bricks. Based on the humorous and action-packed events from the film, The LEGO Movie Videogame puts players in control of Emmet, an ordinary LEGO minifigure mistakenly thought to be "The Special" — a character prophesized to save the world from an evil LEGO tyrant. Using the abilities of more than 90 characters inspired by the film, which include an unlikely cast from some of the world's most beloved and well-knowing properties, including DC Comics Super Heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, family members of all ages will navigate 15 exciting levels in the console version and 45 action-packed missions in the handheld version. With unexpected moments and twists at every level, gamers will build their way -through a uniquely LEGO adventure on their ultimate mission to bring creativity to their LEGO world.
Playable characters include Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt), Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett) and Lord Business (WIll Ferrell). The game is rated E10+. It is $59.99 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4, $49.99 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U and $29.99 for the PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
