Warner Bros. Interactive and Traveller’s Tales are just on a role when it comes to their multiplatform videogame series based on LEGO, its product lines, and its licensed franchises like Marvel, DC, and Disney. This year alone LEGO gamers have enjoyed titles based on The Incredibles and DC’s Super Villains.
Back in 2014 Traveller’s Tales division TT Fusion adapted the hit LEGO Movie into videogame form, sharing the same general themes and mechanics as those of its numerous siblings. With sequel installment The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part coming next year, having WBI-TT make a game sequel sounds obvious.
And indeed the developers aren’t going to keep this development ambiguous. While the information they have announced isn’t much – the teaser image above, a release date, and the game platforms (no real spoiler) – it’s enough to generate interest for the title, considering its predecessor The LEGO Movie Videogame wasn’t as successful compared to the rest.
Gamers can expect The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame from WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales is expected to be released on Microsoft Windows, Xbox One and PS4 on February 26, 2019 or almost three weeks after the premiere of the movie itself. The Switch version follows a month later, March 26.
“Packed with fan-favorite and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore…Players must scour the stars for rare items, materials and tools to complete their collections and help their journey across the LEGO universe, experiencing a wide array of amazing environments, wacky vehicles and incredible creatures along the way.”
Head of Design, Traveller’s Tales
“The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a one-of-a-kind experience full of fantastic characters and open-world adventures with a strong emphasis on creative solutions to puzzles and building within the film’s universe…LEGO fans of all ages will have fun rebuilding their own world using tools to create roads, change the landscape and build structures to unlock more rewards and missions.”
