The Lord of the Rings is considered as one of the finest examples of fantasy literature since its publication between 1954 and 1955. Despite the mixed reception at the time, the Peter Jackson trilogy pushed the epic into the spotlight in the 21st century, with various other forms of media swept up in its story of good and evil. Video games are no exception, with the latest rumour being that there will be a Lego game based on the famous trilogy.

A listing on the shopping website ShopTo has pointed to a possible release of such a game this year. It has been taken down, but a cache version is available to view. While the page is for an Xbox 360 version, it should make an appearance on other consoles, handhelds and mobile devices, with a release date of October 26. It should be noted that a line of Lego based on the Lord of the Rings will be released later this year as well as Peter Jackson’s vision of The Hobbit, the prequel of the Lord of the Rings.

Are you excited about Middle Earth in Lego form? Will The Hobbit feature in the game? Give us your thoughts below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
