LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Officially Announced

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes


The Official Announcement for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes has finally arrived and I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Sounds like the standard LEGO game with a little bit of Batman: Brave and the Bold (the last kid friendly Batman game released) thrown in to freshen it up. The addition of other DC heroes is a great way to add some new play features even if some folks will be disappointed that these supers didn't get their own game, yet. Read the statement for the full scoop:

Batman is back to save Gotham City and the action will only build from here! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group are teaming up once again to announce that LEGO® Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes will be available beginning Summer 2012 for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Wii™ system, and Windows PC, as well as the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system. The game is the sequel to the best-selling LEGO® Batman™: The Videogame, which to date has sold more than 11 million units worldwide.



LEGO Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes complements the brand new, recently released LEGO® Super Heroes: DC Universe toy collection. The line includes five construction sets, such as The Batcave and three buildable, detailed action figures.



In LEGO Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes, the Dynamic Duo of Batman and Robin join other famous super heroes from the DC Universe including Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern to save Gotham City from destruction at the hands of the notorious villains Lex Luthor and the Joker. Batman fans of all ages will enjoy a new and original story filled with classic LEGO videogame action and humor as players fight to put the villains back behind bars.



"LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes builds upon the action and cooperative gameplay experience established in our best-selling LEGO videogame to date, LEGO Batman: The Videogame," said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. "We're offering fans a rich and expansive Gotham City environment filled with cool characters, great customization options and plenty of surprises that families, young gamers and DC Universe fans can enjoy together."



"LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes further extends and combines both the Batman and LEGO videogame experiences to create very fun gameplay," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Fans of all ages are going to enjoy the action and light hearted humor that TT Games and LEGO provide."



LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes allows players to explore all new areas of Gotham City utilizing a variety of vehicles including the Batmobile and Batwing. In addition, they’ll be able to fight for justice by mastering new gadgets and suits, such as Batman's Power Suit and Robins’'Hazard Cannon, and using all-new abilities including flight, super-breath and heat vision.



LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is being developed by TT Games and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. For more information, please visit www.videogames.LEGO.com.


Anyone else waiting for the announcement of a LEGO: Lord of the Rings game?

Not really. Never read the books, didn't like the movies much, so not interested in a game. Passed on LEGO Harry Potter and Pirates of the Carribean for the same reasons.

Back on topic, really excited for this game, I enjoyed the first one a lot (although do remember getting quite frustrated on some levels because I didn't know what to do for awhile, especially when battling Harley Quinn).

I'm a little nervous about having all the other Super Heroes in this game. I wonder what kind of Batman story will involve some many powerful characters and still give Batman something meaningful to do.

As mentioned, I would have preferred a lone Batman game and then, once more characters have been introduced in more sets, a separate Justice League game for the other heroes.

Still, this is a definite buy for me! :)

Given that this happens all the time in the comics (and on the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series), I'm not too worried about that aspect. Batman IS in the Justice League, after all. And he isn't just a tag-along member with the "powerful" heroes, he always seems to have an important role.

I'm more worried about how flying characters will be handled. I dislike having characters' movement stopped by invisible "walls", but I don't see how else levels could be constructed to limit the movements of flying characters (unless they all take place indoors).

But I am excited for this. Well, except that I likely won't be able to play it without buying a new computer. Somehow, even though, release after release, these games all continue to work on the same generation of consoles, the PC requirements keep jumping up. So now I need a Dual Core processor MINIMUM to play the latest Harry Potter game. Sigh.

I really don't know how that works. The capabilities of the consoles aren't changing, why do PCs need massive upgrades to run new titles that still work just fine on the same old Wii?
