It seems anything and everything is being touched with the LEGO gold at the moment, with The Hobbit next in line.
Based on the first two films of The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Tom Stone, Managing Director of TT Games announced “We are thrilled to depict the characters and environments of Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth in LEGO form with the LEGO The Hobbit videogame. Our family-friendly take on these thrilling adventures will have kids and parents playing and laughing together as they build and explore in LEGO Middle-earth.”
Allowing players to take on the role of their favourite Hobbit characters including Bilbo, Gandalf and the Dwarves, LEGO The Hobbit will aim to eclipse the success of previous games including the much loved LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
The game will release on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 in Spring 2014.
