After the Lego-Nintendo tease earlier this week, we didn’t have to wait long for the reveal. The Lego Group has partnered with Nintendo to produce an interactive line of Mario…
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, along with The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment, have announced the LEGO Marvel Collection. This new compilation combines three Marvel LEGO video games in one package: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (2013), LEGO Marvel’s Avengers (2016), and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 (2017), as well as all their DLC.
LEGO Marvel Collection will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 12.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the bestselling LEGO game, and that’s really saying something. It released on both last gen and current gen consoles in 2013 and featured over 150 characters from all over the Marvel universe. The story centered on the world-destroying Galactus coming to Earth, prompting heroes and villains to team up and work together.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is also notable for including the full Marvel comics roster, including the X-Men and Fantastic Four. More recent Marvel games tend to focus squarely on the Avengers from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers was a more focused game that directly retold the events of the first two Avengers movies and many MCU films, starring the heroes and villains from those films.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a middle-ground between the two others, offering an expanded roster but still neglecting many characters outside of Marvel’s cinematic cope (like the X-Men and Fantastic Four). The gameplay is top notch, featuring an exciting hub world that includes multiple worlds, eras, and dimensions thanks to an invasion by the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror. The lengthy campaign is written by comic scribe Kurt Busiek.
The sequel also received a constant stream of movie and TV tie-in DLC, including Black Panther, Runaways, and Avengers: Infinity War.
The LEGO Marvel Collection will launch on March 12 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All three games are rated E10+.
WB Games and TT Games have announced an official video game adaptation of the upcoming sequel, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame will launch on Feb. 26, 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch (physical Switch version on 3/26/19). The film is out Feb. 8, 2019.
While the game will be based on events from The LEGO Movie 2, it will feature characters and events from the original LEGO movie as well. Over 100 characters will be playable from both movies. Budding Master Builders will be able to rebuild Brickburg, changing the landscape and rebuilding roads and structures. Building special LEGO objects will unlock new areas and rewards.
“Packed with fan-favorite and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore,” said Arthur Parsons, TT Games Studios.
The LEGO Movie 2 (not yet rated) reunites the cast of Chris Pratt (Emmet), Elizabeth Banks (Lucy/Wyldstyle), and Will Arnett (scene-stealing LEGO Batman). It takes place five years after they saved their world from Lord Business (Will Ferrell). Now LEGO Duplo have invaded Brickburg. The heroes will have to travel to far off worlds to save their own.
The video game sequel has not yet been rated by the ESRB. The original was rated E10+ for Cartoon Violence and Comic Mischief. The original The LEGO Movie was rated PG.
