On the heels of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part’s theatrical release comes the official The Lego Movie 2 Videogame. It’s out today on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. It’s developed by longtime Lego developers TT Games and published by WB Games.
Note that the physical Switch release won’t be in stores until March 26, however. Watch the new launch trailer above.
Obviously the game is based on the events of the new sequel. The town of Bricksburg has been left in ruins following a massive attack from space invaders (as seen at the end of the first film). The town has been transformed into Apocalypseburg, though star Emmet is implacably cheery as always. When a new visitor from the Systar System abducts his friends, including Lucy and Batman, it’s up to Emmet to travel to worlds unknown.
Over 100 characters can be unlocked and played. Players can not only play through the events and locations from the sequel, but the original film as well.
“The Lego Movie 2 Videogame brings the amazing locations and action from both the sequel and the original 2014 blockbuster The Lego Movie, where kids can play as Emmet, Lucy and other loveable characters,” said Arthur Parsons, Head of Design, TT Games Studios. “Families and friends can journey together to complete quests and amass hidden relics to complete their collections in fantastical Lego worlds environments and locations that come to life with a dizzying array of vehicles and creatures.”
The Lego Movie 2 Videogame has been rated E10+ with Cartoon Violence.
