If there’s a LEGO film, there’s a LEGO game, and if there’s a LEGO game, chances are Warner Bros are behind it. And that’s what we have today as The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame gets an announcement.
If you’re looking to journey into outer space, wish to discover new worlds and are ready to unleash some Master Building mayhem, then The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is going to be for you. Inspired by the much anticipated sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part which will be arriving on the big screen in the months ahead, the videogame version will drop on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC alongside the film release, bringing with it a collection of The LEGO Movie 2 building sets.
Based on events from The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, alien invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins and so it is now up to Emmet, Lucy and a host of heroic characters to go beyond their world and save their friends from the strange inhabitants of the Systar System. Whilst details are still thin on the ground, expect the game version of this adventure to closely follow the action found in the film.
“Packed with fan-favourite and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO® Movie, The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore,” said Arthur Parsons, Head of Design, TT Games Studios. “Players must scour the stars for rare items, materials and tools to complete their collections and help their journey across the LEGO® universe, experiencing a wide array of amazing environments, wacky vehicles and incredible creatures along the way.”
“The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame is a one-of-a-kind experience full of fantastic characters and open-world adventures with a strong emphasis on creative solutions to puzzles and building within the film’s universe,” said Sean William McEvoy, VP Digital Games & Apps, The LEGO Group. “LEGO® fans of all ages will have fun rebuilding their own world using tools to create roads, change the landscape and build structures to unlock more rewards and missions.”
