In 2019, cinemas will be lit up with The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, which is based around the idea that alien creatures have invaded Bricksburg, leaving it in ruins. At the same time, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will release a complementary video game that is at least inspired by the film, if not based around it. That game, which was announced today, goes by the name of The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game.
“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, Head of Design, TT Games Studios. “Players must scour the stars for rare items, materials and tools to complete their collections and help their journey across the LEGO universe, experiencing a wide array of amazing environments, wacky vehicles and incredible creatures along the way.”
“The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a one-of-a-kind experience full of fantastic characters and open-world adventures with a strong emphasis on creative solutions to puzzles and building within the film’s universe,” said Sean William McEvoy, VP Digital Games & Apps, The LEGO Group. “LEGO fans of all ages will have fun rebuilding their own world using tools to create roads, change the landscape and build structures to unlock more rewards and missions.”
The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game will release next year, alongside the movie and a collection of physical LEGO sets. It is currently in the works for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
