Harness the powers of the master builders to become an extraordinary LEGO gamer in this action-packed, family-friendly adventure
LONDON, UK. – February 7th, 2014 – Step into a LEGO® game unlike any other and become a true Master Builder! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group today announced The LEGO Movie Videogame will be available in UK retail stores from February 14th for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, PlayStation®Vita, Wii U™, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held, and Windows PC.
The LEGO Movie Videogame, released with the highly anticipated “The LEGO Movie,” from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and LEGO System A/S, takes players on an awesome adventure through fantastical LEGO worlds, including Bricksburg, Cloud Cuckoo Land and the Wild West of Flatbush Gulch. And for the first time ever in a LEGO game, all environments are made entirely of digital LEGO bricks.
“We challenged ourselves to introduce a new element never-before-seen in any LEGO game and did that with environments made entirely out of LEGO bricks, giving players more authentic opportunities to interact with the world around them,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “This is a chance for every LEGO builder to collect LEGO instruction pages and harness the powers of the Master Builders.”
Based on the humorous and action-packed events from the film, The LEGO Movie Videogameputs players in control of Emmet, an ordinary LEGO minifigure mistakenly thought to be “The Special” — a character prophesized to save the world from an evil LEGO tyrant. Using the abilities of more than 90 characters inspired by the film, which include an unlikely cast from some of the world’s most beloved and well-knowing properties, including DC Comics Super Heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, family members of all ages will navigate 15 exciting levels in the console version and 45 action-packed missions in the handheld version. With unexpected moments and twists at every level, gamers will build their way -through a uniquely LEGO adventure on their ultimate mission to bring creativity to their LEGO world.
Among the playable characters in the game are fan-favorites from the film like Emmet, voiced by Chris Pratt; Vitruvius, voiced by Morgan Freeman; Wyldstyle, voiced by Elizabeth Banks; Batman, voiced by Will Arnett; and Lord Business, voiced by Will Ferrell.
The LEGO Movie Videogame is rated PEGI 7 and is available on February 14th for Xbox One, PlayStation®4, Xbox 360, PS3™, Wii U™, PS®Vita, Nintendo 3DS™ and Windows PC.
