LEGO Marvel Collection Assembles Three Marvel LEGO Games

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

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+.

“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.

At this point Warner Bros. has their LEGO superhero DLC schedule figured it out – simply tie it into upcoming movies. It worked with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, and they’re banking on it for the upcoming LEGO DC Super-Villains, launching on October 16 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

The Season Pass includes six Level Packs and four Character Packs. Both Aquaman and Shazam are getting two separate level packs, modeled after their respective upcoming solo films (Aquaman in Dec., Shazam April 2019). The other two level packs are inspired from animated series Batman: The Animated Series and Young Justice.

The Character Packs include all the DC heroes and villains from various WB shows like Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow, as well as additional characters from DC films and the comic Justice League Dark.

The Season Pass is included in the Deluxe Edition of DC Super-Villains ($74.99). It provides immediate access to the first Character Pack, the Super-Villains TV Series Character Pack. The physical version also includes a Lex Luthor Superman LEGO minifigure. The digital version instead adds the Justice League Dark Character Pack. The Season Pass will also be available as a separate purchase for $14.99.

In LEGO DC Super-Villains players will create their own unique super villain with their own custom powers and costume. They’ll join forces with iconic DC super-villains for an original story designed exclusively for the game.

The LEGO games remain at the forefront of family-friendly gaming, with a wealth of content, easy controls, humorous writing, and local cooperative multiplayer.

LEGO DC Super-Villains launches October 16 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. It has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
