Warner Bros. has officially confirmed the existence of the upcoming Skylanders-style game LEGO Dimensions after a post on Reddit leaked the the name and additional details.
LEGO Dimensions, developed by Traveller’s Tales, will be coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. By using a Toy Pad (shown below) and various LEGO minifigures and vehicles, players will be able to venture into “various LEGO worlds” in order to “rescue their friends and fight to save all of LEGO humanity.”
Minifigures from various movies and media will be available alongside the game, including characters from The LEGO Movie, LEGO Ninjago, The Wizard of Oz, The Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, and DC Comics. Along with the starter pack (Shown above), which comes with Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle, additional character figures such as Wonder Woman, Gollum and Gimli, Marty McFly, and the Wicked Witch of the West will follow soon after the game’s release.
According to a statement from Traveller’s Tales founder and creative director Jon Burton:
When kids play with LEGO bricks, they build beyond the singular brands, intermixing all of their favorite characters and universes, and we have come up with a way for players to experience that in games,” Burton said. “Now for the first time in a video game, LEGO fans can play in the virtual world and in the real world–combining everything without restrictions. Imagine putting LEGO Gollum from The Lord of the Rings behind the wheel of the LEGO Delorean in New Ninjago City–the creative play is endless.
LEGO Dimensions will arrive for the aforementioned consoles on September 27, launching alongside add-on packs and additional figures. You can check out the official trailer above! Are you ready to break the rules?
