With The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug due out next month, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that LEGO: The Hobbit will be released on various platforms next year. It was only last week that promotional material was leaked online for a potential return to Middle-earth. Warner’s last endeavour into the fantasy realm with LEGO: The Lord of the Rings received positive reviews from the critics, but was delayed for up to a week on the Wii in Europe.
LEGO: The Hobbit will follow Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin and the other dwarves through their adventures in Middle-earth. Like its predecessor each character will have their own special moves, and will travel through The Misty Mountain, High Pass, Rivendell, Goblin-town and Mirkwood. LEGO: The Hobbit will be released Spring 2014 for Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC and Mac.
