With San Diego Comic-Con in full swing at the moment, it makes sense that Warner Bros. would have some new footage of Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham to show off this weekend.
In the newly released trailer, the Justice League is summoned in order to save Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter from The Joker and his partners in evil. The traditional humor of the Lego series of games is on full display here, as Superman and Wonder Woman are pulled from their date and Batman and Robin roast some ducks in order to make the journey to space.
While this trailer helps set up the first part of Lego Batman 3, there is more to the story here than the traditional battle between good and evil. A threat from intergalactic foe Brianiac will require the Justice League and the Legion of Doom to form an uneasy alliance. While the two sides will never see eye to eye, their partnership is the only thing standing in between the way of Brainiac and world domination.
The Lego games are always a treat to play through, and I’m happy to see that DC is getting the same treatment Marvel did last year. By pulling from the massive roster of the comic giant, Traveler’s Tales can give gamers and fans the proper comic book experience they deserve. Not to mention, if you’re like me anyway, being able to play as Plastic Man will be worth the cost of admission alone.
Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is expected to launch this fall on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC.
