“We challenged ourselves to introduce a new element never-before-seen in any LEGO game and did that with environments made entirely out of LEGO bricks, giving players more authentic opportunities to interact with the world around them,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “This is a chance for every LEGO builder to collect LEGO instruction pages and harness the powers of the Master Builders.”
Based on the humorous and action-packed events from the film, The LEGO Movie Videogame puts players in control of Emmet, an ordinary LEGO minifigure mistakenly thought to be “The Special” — a character prophesized to save the world from an evil LEGO tyrant. Using the abilities of more than 90 characters inspired by the film, which includes the cast of DC Comics Super Heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, family members of all ages will navigate 15 levels in the console version and 45 missions in the handheld version.
Among the playable characters in the game are fan-favorites from the film like Emmet, voiced by Chris Pratt; Vitruvius, voiced by Morgan Freeman; Wyldstyle, voiced by Elizabeth Banks; Batman, voiced by Will Arnett; and Lord Business, voiced by Will Ferrell.
The LEGO Movie Videogame is available on February 14th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
