There are some new details from DC All Access and Gamespot coming out of E3 for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. In the videos below, you can see some gameplay footage of what appears to be the first stage of the game where you begin in space. Here you fly around in a side-scrolling stage collecting power-ups and defeating Joker’s minions.
Another cool feature is the Suit Wheels that various characters have including Batman, Robin, and Cyborg. Cyborg has a number of different suits including Magnet, Space, Giant, Sonar, Demolition, and Stealth.
Some other things that Game Director Arthur Parsons mentioned was the game hub will look like The LEGO Movie and will have many locations like the Batcave, Hall of Justice, the Watchtower, and Hall of Doom. There will also be a bonus exclusive minifigure for pre-ordering but that is a secret for now.
Check out the videos below for some cool gameplay action.
The next character in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham has been revealed and it appears that it will be a big fig version of Cyborg. He is the second character revealed for the game with Plastic Man revealed last week.

TT Games has teased an image of Plastic Man for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham from their Twitter account. He will be part of the 150 playable characters that will be included in the game.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham was announced today (see trailer below) and will be coming to all major consoles, handhelds and the PC with a release date of Fall 2014. The storyline follows Batman on an intergalatic adventure seeking to stop Braniac from destroying Earth. Brainic is using the power of the Lantern Rings to miniaturize cities and Batman and other DC heroes will visit different Lantern Worlds to collect the Rings to try and stop Braniac.
The game will feature 150 characters from the DC universe. It was unveiled that Killer Croc and Solomon Grundy will be featured as larger characters much as The Hulk and Abomination was in the LEGO Marvel video game. In addition, the sequel will allow players to visit the Hall of Justic, the Justice League Watchtower and the Batcave.
From a toy perspective we really hope a few minifigs shown in the trailer will be coming to minifig form (Intergalactic Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Cyborg).
