Fans of LEGO has a lot to look forward to this year as far as gaming is concerned. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, along with TT Games and The LEGO Group has announced a slate of LEGO videogames which include, you guessed it, LEGO Jurassic World and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers. The former is something which any self-respecting Jurassic Park’s fans shouldn’t miss, whether you are a LEGO fan or not cos’ this epic game title packs three Jurassic Park stories pulled from the previous three dinos-eat-man flicks, along with the upcoming blockbuster Jurassic World. As for the LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, it will feature characters and storylines from the first Avengers flick, as well as the upcoming summer blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Both videogames will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and 3, Playstation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, as well as Windows PC. What??? No Mac? Well, unfortunately, it appears to be so. Bummer. Luckily we still have our trusty PS3 sticking around this tiny space. LEGO Jurassic World is set for June release, while LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is expected to hit the market this Fall. In addition to the two potential hit games, Warner Bros. also introduces LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin, which is, well, based on the popular LEGO Ninjago franchise (but of course!) and it will come to current popular handhelds like Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita on March 24, 2015.
Already available on the various platforms like Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, The LEGO Movie Videogame ($4.99) is now available for iOS devices too. It offers the same storyline as before, letting you follow Emmet through the magical LEGO Movie world in 45 levels. Last but not the least, there is the LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham for mobile devices. Slated for official release this Summer, you get to save the brick world from evil Brainiac and in the process unlocking other DC Comics characters, including members of Justice League and the Legion of Doom.
I am not sure about you guys, but personally, I have played numerous LEGO games, including Star Wars, Harry Potter and the likes, and so I’d be lying if I were to say I am not a bit excited. On the other hand, I can’t say if I am all too thrilled about LEGO-lized dinosaurs. But we will see.
