Last week we brought you the news of EB Games Australia’s sweet Lex Luthor pre-order bonus with LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. This week, the bonus has been made available to North Americans! You can pre-order at Gamestop (US) or EB Games (Canada). Because nothing says “Batman” like Lex Luthor in power armor.

It looks like there may be hope for those that found the Lex Luthor figure included in 6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex a little bland. I mean, who shows up to battle Superman in a three piece suit? Ok, so they did scrap on occasion in more formal attire and sometimes even in ridiculous shirtless bare-knuckle boxing matches. However, don’t get too excited just yet (I mean about the figure, not the shirtless boxing) because this deal has only popped up on the Australian EB Games site so far and even if the same deal gets offered in other countries it still means pre-ordering the LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game at full price. I love the LEGO games and if this offer hits Canada it will be the first time I buy one without waiting for the usual price drop, but I just wouldn’t want to risk missing out on this classic look. Fingers crossed!
Amazon.com now has the much anticipated LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for pre-order on all systems (with the sole exclusion of PC) to be released on June 1st. WB Interactive has sent out some interesting images including the below renders of Batman and Lex Luthor.
Since the trailer hit the other day there’s been plenty of buzz about the new charecters and abilities. The trailer makes it very clear that Superman is on the scene and breaking out the heat vision and freeze breath, but fails to highlight his super-strength and x-ray vision which will be the key to many in game secrets. CBR and USA Today have stated that there will be other heroes like Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash making appearences as the title suggests and the fans have hoped for. I’m really interested to see how they pull off co-operative play with Green Lantern or especially the scarlet speedster. Just hearing the voices and seeing the three character interact at once threw me for a bit of a loop, so I can’t wait to see what other surprises this game has in store.
I hear voices and now you can too! I don’t know how I feel about the little plastic people gaining voices after so many games, but it looks great so far. There’s no specific release date other than “Summer,” but it will be available on the Nintendo 3DS, DS, Wii, PS3, Vita, Xbox 360, and PC, basically everything.

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.
