The LEGO Movie Videogame was a fun way to play the role of Emmet, and ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure, who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. The game has been received very well, so it was expected that we will also get a game for The LEGO Movie 2. Most versions are already available, so you can start playing right away! Info below. 🙂
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, and The LEGO Group announced the launch of The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame, inspired by the new big-screen animated adventure, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part from Warner Bros. Pictures now in theatres. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is already available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The physical version for Nintendo Switch will be available mid-March.
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is based on events that take place in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, as the story begins in the desolate wasteland of Apocalypseburg, where alien invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins! Emmet and his awesome crew of companions go beyond their world to save their friends from the strange inhabitants of the faraway Systar System.
“The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame brings the amazing locations and action from both the sequel and the original 2014 blockbuster The LEGO Movie, where kids can play as Emmet, Lucy, and other loveable characters,” said Arthur Parsons, Head of Design, TT Games Studios. “Families and friends can journey together to complete quests and amass hidden relics to complete their collections in fantastical LEGO worlds environments and locations that come to life with a dizzying array of vehicles and creatures.”
“Imagination and creation are the hallmarks of LEGO play and The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame delivers on this promise,” said Sean William McEvoy, VP Digital Games & Apps, The LEGO Group. “Mission-based building will empower players and put their creativity into action with the ability to build items anywhere to solve puzzles.” Players can continue their adventures in The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame this spring with free DLC adding new locations to explore, new characters to meet and new challenges to face.
