Earlier this year, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced The LEGO Movie, which is due to hit cinemas in February 2014. Alongside the movie release, the publisher also announced that it would be launching The LEGO Movie Videogame for various platforms. Other than its initial announcement, we’ve not heard much in the media pipeline, but now Warner Bros. has published the game’s first trailer.
In the trailer above, you’ll play as Emmet – a perfectly ordinary LEGO figure mistaken for one named “The Special” who must save the world from an evil LEGO tyrant. Combined with the trademark LEGO humour, players will find 15 levels following events from the movie, and will experience animation never seen before in a LEGO game. Even Batman makes an appearance to a rather excitable Emmet, plus there’s catchy music with every mini figure bopping to the beat.
Warner Bros. hasn’t announced a release date as of yet, but we assume it will tie-in with the movie release early next year. The LEGO Movie Videogame will launch for Wii U and 3DS, as well as other platforms.
