You might remember that back in December it was announced that a new LEGO The Hobbit video-game was in the making (see press-release and details here: LEGO The Hobbit Video-Game Coming!). Recently Warner Brothers sent out an update, as well as the key art for the game, which is particularly interesting because this is the first time we have a chance to see a LEGO version of Smaug. 🙂
Here is the official press-release update about the game: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released the key art for LEGO The Hobbit, available this Spring for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation4, PlayStation3, PlayStationVita, the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, as well as Windows PC. Join Gandalf, Bilbo, Thorin Oakenshield and Company, as they set out on an unforgettable journey filled with both splendor and peril, on their quest to take back the Lonely Mountain from Smaug The Magnificent.
In LEGO The Hobbit, kids and families will take on the form of their favorite Hobbit characters and follow the storyline of Peter Jackson’s first two films. Players will embark on quests throughout Middle-earth, joining Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin Oakenshield and Company in their exciting adventures toward the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor. Along the way, players will solve countless puzzles, partake in Treasure Quests and battle with Orcs, Trolls, Goblins and fouler things.
Interesting, isn’t it? Looks like Smaug is going to be quite similar to the standard LEGO dragons, but with more menacing claws and a special head-piece. There is also a new trailer for the LEGO The Hobbit game, so I will share that here as well. Enjoy!
Funny and entertaining as all LEGO games, LEGO The Hobbit should not disappoint. The game will be released in April, but you can already pre-order it on Amazon with a pre-order price garantee. Here is the link: PRE-ORDER LEGO THE HOBBIT VIDEO-GAME
