Although things seemed quiet on the LEGO gaming front, it was just a ruse. In fact, not only are the building blocks going to combine with major licensed properties for even more interactive adventures in 2015, but the year may end up being their busiest yet.
Today, Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games announced multiple stud-filled licensed games, including:
LEGO Jurassic World: Although it shares the same title as the franchise’s upcoming fourth film, this game will actually start at the beginning and work its way through the series from Jurassic Park through to Jurassic World. It will be released in June, for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, 3DS, Vita and PC.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers: Incorporating the plots of both Marvel’s The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, this large-scale game starring tiny LEGO people will allow superhero fanatics to relive their favourite moments as the iconic heroes themselves. Look for it in Fall 2015, for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, 3DS, Vita and PC.
LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin: Based on an untold episode of the LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu TV series, this handheld-only game will provide fans with the license’s most expansive outing thus far. This one will be released on March 24, 2015, for PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
Lastly, it’s also been confirmed that both The LEGO Movie Video Game and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham are heading to mobile devices. Presumably, both will make their way to iOS, and will be available for use on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, but those details only appear under the former and not the latter.
“The LEGO videogame franchise remains a cornerstone of our business, consistently delivering fun, engaging gameplay and remarkable humor both kids and adults love,” said David Haddad, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We look forward to expanding the successful series with this very exciting line-up of new LEGO experiences for players of all ages to enjoy on console, handheld and mobile gaming devices.”
“This year will be the biggest yet for LEGO videogames with these incredible titles and several firsts for the series,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “TT Games are crafting humorous LEGO adventures, based on new stories and characters across some of the most well-known and iconic worlds.”
