Not a moment goes by where there isn’t a LEGO game in development, it seems, as the busy bees at TT Games continue to mine for digital bricks with which to create more games in more varied settings. So it is that Warner Bros. have announced two new games which will feature week in and week out in the UK and global video game charts: LEGO Jurassic World and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers.
As you might expect, Jurassic World will be arriving on every games console you can think of in June – so PS4, PS3, XBO, X360, Wii U, PS Vita, 3DS and PC – to coincide with the release of the new film, but will actually feature the stories of the first three Jurassic Park films as well as that of the new one.
Without a film to come out alongside, but nonetheless based on some of the characters and stories from Avengers Assemble and Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel’s Avengers will bring another dose of Marvel super hero-based action in the autumn, with an identical console roster.
That’s not all for LEGO this year though, with Tom Stone, Managing Director of TT Games, saying, “This year will be the biggest yet for LEGO videogames,” in the press release. LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin will be hitting the 3DS and PS Vita on March, while The LEGO Movie Video Game has already landed on the iOS app store and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will both be coming along this spring.
Right, I’ve just about have enough of writing ‘LEGO’, so I’m off to sit in a dark room and think about competing children’s construction toys.
