Warner Bros. hasn’t been the most active of publishers on Nintendo Switch, but when it comes to LEGO games, Nintendo’s console hasn’t been missing a single one since launch. Therefore, it’s no big surprise that the next one, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame, has been announced for the Nintendo Switch today!
As the name implies, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is based on the LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part movie, which comes out in February in several countries. Here’s the first two screenshots and the Nintendo Switch boxart:
Based on events from The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part, alien invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins! It is now up to Emmet, Lucy and a host of heroic characters to go beyond their world and save their friends from the strange inhabitants of the Systar System. “Packed with fan-favourite and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO® Movie, The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore,” said Arthur Parsons, Head of Design, TT Games Studios.
“Players must scour the stars for rare items, materials and tools to complete their collections and help their journey across the LEGO® universe, experiencing a wide array of amazing environments, wacky vehicles and incredible creatures along the way.” “The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame is a one-of-a-kind experience full of fantastic characters and open-world adventures with a strong emphasis on creative solutions to puzzles and building within the film’s universe,” said Sean William McEvoy, VP Digital Games & Apps, The LEGO Group. “LEGO® fans of all ages will have fun rebuilding their own world using tools to create roads, change the landscape and build structures to unlock more rewards and missions.”
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame (Switch) comes out next year in Europe and North America (Japanese release will most definitely be announced at a later date). The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
