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.

There is also a stand to display them as well as a small vignette showing the duel.
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.
