LEGO, LEGO and yet more LEGO, that’s what the people want! At least, that’s what Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The Lego Group think – and to be honest, they’re probably right.
Denmark’s favourite toy (I’m assuming) has come a long way since its original inception back in 1958. Those multi-coloured bricks sure are awesome, and this year they’re set to become even more so with a whole slew of new video games slated for release for console, handheld and mobile platforms, including:
– LEGO Jurassic World (June release for Xbox One/Xbox 360/PS4/PS3/PSVita/WiiU/Nintendo 3DS/Windows PC): Players will be able to live out their Jurassic Park fantasies through an amalgamated storyline involving all four films;
– LEGO Marvel’s Avengers (Autumn release for Xbox One/Xbox 360/PS4/PS3/PSVita/WiiU/Nintendo 3DS/Windows PC): Gamers will be able to utilise the powers of any one of their favourite Avengers, with the story following that of the first film The Avengers as well as the soon to be released sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron;
– LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin (March 27th release for Nintendo 3DS/PS Vita): Expanding further on the LEGO Ninjago universe, this game will challenge players to use their Spinjitzu abilities to unleash their Ninja’s elemental power and smash through any and all obstacles in their way, as well as help solve befuddling puzzles (what? It’s a word);
– The LEGO Movie Video Game (now available in the App store for iPhone/iPad/iTouch): Everything continues to be awesome as you take control of our loveable yellow friend Emmet and try to stop the evil Lord Business from carrying out his dastardly plans (if you’ve not seen the film yet then go, go now and watch it!);
– LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (Spring release on the App Store for iPhone/iPad/iTouch): Batman and his Super Hero pals from the DC universe are back and must band together to destroy Brainiac before he destroys Earth. Unlock and play with over 150 characters, including the Justice League and the Legion of Doom, all while exploring epically re-imagined locations such as the Batcave, the JL Watchtower and the Hall of Justice.
Man, I sure love LEGO, and with all that brick building goodness ahead I’d say we’ve got ourselves a bona fide LEGO-palooza!
