In terms of LEGO-related news, “LEGO DC Super-Villains” might already qualify as “old.” However, WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales have done their level best to keep the videogame somewhat relevant. All it takes is a periodical release of new DLC updates for the title. And their latest one’s a beauty.
Year 2010 had DC fans enthralled when DC Entertainment released “Young Justice” on Cartoon Network. Unfortunately its unprofitable toy-line with Mattel led to cancellation after only two seasons. Fan support led to creators Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman to continue the series on DC Universe streaming. It premiered last January.
History lesson over; as if it weren’t obvious, “Young Justice” is the theme for the new “LDCSV” DLC. Interestingly, the new LEGO characters are the titular heroes as they appeared in the original CN show. Superboy, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Miss Martian and Artemis are the pack’s playable starters, with new additional villain Black Beetle being unlocked after he gets beaten.
“LEGO DC Super-Villains,” if you need reminding, remains available on PS4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and Nintendo Switch. The “Young Justice” DLC is automatically available for downloading by Season Pass-holders and Delux Edition owners. Otherwise it’s worth $2.99 to download.
