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.

The game is available directly through WBGames.com website (click banner above), and also via retailers. As far as I know, the only special releases are from GameStop and Amazon, which include a Star-Struck Emmet minifigure. Here are the links to the listings on Amazon:

I played the first game. It’s fun. I don’t know if I will get the second one, but might ask for it for my birthday. Not sure yet. There are other lego games I like.

I’m not a big fan of Lego being apart of the video game universe. Because , Lego focuses on creativity and video games don’t. In fact I think it takes away the imagination to have the creativity. I know this because my mother is a English teacher and when she asks one of her students to tell or make up a story , they can’t or have a very hard time doing it. The parents of these student admit that there kids play a lot of video games all the time. The imagination is handed to them and not created on their own. It’s just an observation . Video games however, sometimes helps with problem solving skills. It’s sort of a mixed bag. The only video game system( if you want to call it a system) is Nintendo 3ds, but , I barely use it I’m too busy creating in my Lego room.( or reading a book).

Another thing that has been documented to stifle kids’ creativity these days is that their lives are too structured with no time for free expression. Now, kindergarten is preschool, and there is even pre-preschool for toddlers. After school activities are structured sports and programs.

No more freely biking around the neighborhood, fishing in the pond, and building tree houses unsupervised. All of those activities are now structured programs with full supervision.

So, kids never learn to express themselves, rely on themselves, make mistakes and learn on their own. Thus, when a teacher or someone else asks them to create something on their own, they are like deer in the headlights.

The effects of helicopter parenting are well documented. These kids need instructions, validation, and approval for everything. They are afraid to do something that’s not a guided activity.

Kids are naturally creative. They can play with a rock and a stick, or whatever else they find. I agree that natural creativity and expression are not supported as much these days, and even medicated!

Not only that , ask how many parents read to there children. Which is a large factor in developing their minds and creativity. Most of the time parents are busy or hooked on video games themselves. Young children are still have that imagination to be imaginative but, when you put a tablet in front of them to keep them occupied for a while or parents don’t have time to deal with them . Well what does that teach the child. All of these electronic devices can be teaching tools if used properly. Now I’m not saying video games are bad but, when Lego main focus is creativity and turns to video games. It almost defeats the purpose of the hobby itself.

Hm… good point about reading. Reading, or listening to someone else read, really stimulates the imagination. 🙂

I really like this video game. I guess we will purchase it as my boys loved to play all LEGO video games in the past and it will be much fun to play this together.
Greetings from Germany.
