Much like its predecessor, and every major LEGO product line (and really, a lot of its licensed franchises too), the currently-showing “LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” is also getting a videogame version from the brand’s longtime game development partner TT Games.
Okay, so “The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame” is actually being developed under the British developer’s B-team, TT Fusion. But it still promises plenty of action and wacky digital building fun that might hopefully make up for the lower enthusiasm of the “LEGO Movie” sequel in cinemas. Seeing as it will be released two weeks from now, fans won’t have long to wait either.
And in the grand tradition of most console game developers in this day and age, the initial release of “The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame” will also come with a first batch of post-release downloadable content. What’s interesting however about this DLC is that rather than adding new characters and stuff, it brings back elements from the previous “LEGO Movie” instead.
Steam notes in its “LEGO Movie 2 Videogame” page that the DLC, titled as the “Prophecy” pack, can be had as part of a pre-purchase offer. This pack will include prominent characters from the 2014 “LEGO Movie” like big bad Lord Business and past versions of Vitruvious and Metalbeard. The description goes:
Play as your favorite film characters from the first LEGO Movie. The character pack includes Young Vitruvius and the unsuspecting Emmet in his pyjamas. Kragle-loving Lord Business is also in the pack along with other memorable characters Shakespeare, Cleopatra, and Classic Metal Beard.
There is however no further details if along with the added characters there will also be more levels or story to the DLC pack. Still, if one hasn’t picked up the “LEGO Movie Videogame” and is interested in “LEGO Movie 2” then maybe getting this DLC will bring the best of both titles for them.
“The LEGOV Movie 2 Videogame” will be released by TT Games and WB Interactive this coming February 26 on the usual LEGO game consoles and platforms: Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Sony PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
