UPDATE: I’ve included some in-game screenshots followed by a press release at the end of this article, courtesy of Warner Bros. Interactive.
We had an earlier look at its box art a couple of days ago, and earlier today, LEGO had posted its first official announcement about The LEGO Incredibles video game via Twitter. The video highlights the Parr family and their individual powers, together with other familiar faces like Frozone and Edna Mode. The short video plug also suggests that like other LEGO video games, The LEGO Incredibles will also follow a co-op kind of gameplay, with each character’s superpowers complimenting one another. Check this out.
It is also expected that the video game will be a direct tie-in with the film, as players relive the entire movie similar to other film-inspired LEGO video games. What I find interesting about the game is that it features a bigfig version of Mr. Incredible, which will really be nice if there is a physical counterpart of him in a LEGO set. Baby Jack Jack will also get more screen time especially that the extent of his powers are still yet to be fully realized in the sequel. Lastly, the video clip also hints on a rather curious tidbit. It seems to suggests that The LEGO Incredibles will feature not just the sequel but also the original film. It will not be a longshot to consider that we will get both stories in one awesome video game package.
The LEGO Incredibles video game will be available across all major gaming platforms (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC) on June 15, exactly the same date when Disney Pixar The Incredibles 2 debuts in US theaters.
