Warner Bros have made an exciting announcement for LEGO Dimensions, a Skylanders-style title which will feature an array of toys brought to life in-game.
Included in the launch line-up will be characters from Lord of the Rings, LEGO, DC Comics, Back to the Future and the Wizard of Oz universe.
When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, Lord of the Rings and the LEGO Movie are swept away,” reads the product description. “To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex to rescue their friends and fight to save all of LEGO humanity.
Let your creativity be your guide as you build the LEGO Gateway to adventure, journeying through unexpected worlds and teaming-up with unlikely allies on the quest to defeat the evil Lord Vortech. Play with characters you never thought you could see in a LEGO game together, using vehicles and weapons you never thought possible.
LEGO Bad Cop driving the DeLorean Time Machine? Why not?! The Ninjago Masters of Spinjitsu fighting alongside Wonder Woman…yes, please! Get ready to break the rules, because the only rule with LEGO Dimensions is that there are no rules.
