Scooby Doo characters are among the many, many recognizable faces you’ll see in LEGO Dimensions, which comes out on September 27.
The Scooby Doo Team Pack looks really cute. It comes with Shaggy, Scooby, the Mystery Machine, and a Scooby Snack (aka, pile of sandwiches). As I mentioned in my write-up of LEGO Dimensions, a Team Pack contains additional figures for the game, but not additional game levels. Other Team Packs that have been announced for LEGO Dimensions so far include Ninjago, Jurassic World, and DC Comics.
The gameplay in LEGO Dimensions will be similar to other LEGO games. Some enemies will need to be smashed, some devices will need to be built, etc. What sets LEGO Dimensions apart is that players will interact with the Toy Pad as well as the game. Moving figures around, adding weapons, and rebuilding vehicles will all factor into the gameplay.
LEGO is a toys-to-life newcomer, but it’s coming out swinging with the biggest mash-up of brands that we’ve seen so far. This offers a lot of opportunities for fun levels to play and cool character interactions too. But we’re also holding our breath, because LEGO Dimensions costs a lot more than Disney Infinity and Skylanders, and it’s coming out after both of those games get new installments.
Here’s our discussion of LEGO Dimensions and what it could mean for the toys-to-life market. You can read more about our thoughts here.
LEGO Dimensions comes out on September 27 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii U. The Scooby Doo Team Pack can be pre-ordered on Amazon right now.
