Here’s another great reason to attend the San Diego Comic Con this year. According to the event’s official programming schedule, TT Games, the game developer behind the anticipated LEGO DC Super-Villains video game, will be hosting a meet-the-talent panel where TT Games main man (aka Head of Design) Arthur Parsons will be on the spotlight to share to comic-con attendees an inside look on how the game was developed. Since its grand debut during last month’s E3 where we get to see a glimpse of its live gameplay at that time, the upcoming LEGO DC Super-Villains: Meet the Talent Behind the Video Game panel will focus on LEGO’s first “villain-centric” video game adventure.
Arthur Parsons will be joined by fan-favorite Batman voice actor, Kevin Conroy. SDCC is a bit tight-lipped on the rest of game’s voice cast especially the one who will give life to the Joker once the game is made available on October 16. So we’ll just have to wait what surprises LEGO and TT Games have in store by then. Other than the Joker, SDCC is a great venue for other game character reveals, such as their approach in promoting the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 last year.
Though there was no mention of any LEGO freebies for attendees of the panel, it is very likely that LEGO has a surprise gift or prize tucked somewhere. The LEGO DC Super-Villains video game is now available for pre-order, with its Deluxe Edition featuring an exclusive Lex Luthor minifigure. Here’s a complete description of what to expect from the SDCC 2018 panel, followed by a video gameplay footage from Brandon Jones during last June’s E3.
The team behind the LEGO DC Super-Villains videogame, including Arthur Parsons (head of design, TT Games) and fan-favorite Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, give an inside look at the first LEGO game to put players at the center of a villain-centric adventure packed with favorite locations and characters from across the DC Universe. This celebration of villainy will provide fans with exciting character reveals and details about the story. Players have the ability to create and play as a super-villain throughout LEGO DC Super-Villains, unleashing mischievous antics and wreaking havoc in an action-packed, hilarious story written in collaboration with DC Comics. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and The LEGO Group will release the game on October 16.
