In an announcement by Warner Bros. Interactive, TT Games and The LEGO Group, it is officially confirmed that The Lego Movie 2 Video Game, inspired by the much-anticipated sequel for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part from Warner Bros. Pictures and Animation Group, has been confirmed to be in development and is scheduled to release in 2019 alongside the upcoming motion picture.
In their announcement, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed that The Lego Movie 2 Videogame will release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch early 2019 alongside the motion picture its inspired by. Just like in the movie, alien invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins, leaving Lucy and Emmet to clean up the mess with the help of their lego friends. The only problem they will have to face? Another group of invaders from the Systar System who seem to be up to no good.
“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.”
Much like previous LEGO games, you’ll be diving into an experience unlike any other through the use of LEGO and the universes that LEGO’s help create.
“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.”
The reveal of The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame comes only a short few weeks since the release of their already critically-acclaimed Lego DC Super Villains that sees fans take on the role of some of DC’s greatest bad guys turned good in order to save their world from extra-dimensional imposters.
Now, it seems the LEGO universe has even greater foes to concern themselves with as the LEGO Movie universe seems to have an alien invader problem. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you up to date as more information about the upcoming title is released.
