LEGO Batman 2 Trailer Comes Down Like a Ton of Bricks

Posted by James Newton

Visit Gotham City

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for Wii and its 3DS counterpart are out in a month, which is more than enough time to watch this new trailer showing its open-world take on Bruce Wayne's home city.

It's got all the things you'd want from a LEGO DC trailer — The Flash running fast, The Joker laughing maniacally and a pie calling on Lex Luthor's head. It's also got some things you might not have expected: voiced characters for one thing.

Anyway, it's out next month and it looks pretty good to us.

I've never played a Lego game so correct me if I'm wrong, is this the first time a Lego game has featured voice acting?

@2 yes you're right. I' m not sure I like it, but I'll need to wait to see.

I'm betting on this being the best superman game yet.

The fact that the beginning and end of this trailer contains music from the 1989 Batman movie is really awesome!!!!

Its weird hearing lego characters talk. Also, in ONM's preview of the 3DS version, it said that it wouldn't be open world like most of the other versions.

Apparantly this LEGO video game has significant differences to the others. Also, there's some rumours it has 50 unlockable DC characters. Insta-buy.

(The 3DS version isn't open world according to the Nintendo Gamer/ONM previews)

Cool Taco! (It's my way of/like saying Cool, & it's other variant/derivative phrases.)

Anyway, I will have to play/try it, to warrant getting it. Look's good though.

I honestly didn't expect voice acting to tear gamers away from this game. I would have expected this kind of conversation from Zelda getting voice acting, but not Lego :(

I dismissed this game because it was ANOTHER Lego game...
I'm now GETTING this game because its an OPEN-WORLD Lego game!!!!
Though I don't have a Wii anymore... :(

Gotham City? It looks like Legotham City to me.

It is nice to see changes made to the Lego formula, although it will be a bummer if you can only use the heroes here.

Seems cool. I personally am a fan of the LEGO video games, and i have 2 but i've played about 4. I like the open world idea and i'm excited about how this game will turn out. I will buy this

"Two heroes and Robin"
Harsh. I happen to like Robin. (And by "Robin", I don't mean Chris O'Donnell. I mean Dick/Jason/Tim/Stephanie/Damian.) Robin is a hero.

Should have called this one Lego Justice League instead. I really liked the first Lego Batman because it drew alot of inspiration from the 90's animated series but this one I dont know. For one thing I dont like the fact that they added voices. Still I will probably rent this one from GameFly and check it out.

Voice acting? Really? I <3 the NORMAL way it was. "Mer, her, ner!" "Ber?"
Not this voice acting crap, BUT, other than that, I WILL buy it.

Wow the 3 ds demo of this game isn't anything like that trailer. Except Batman and Robin and a few villains. Not open world nor does it have those graphics. All and all the demo was pretty cool though, but after seeing this I may rather have a different version of this game. I thought the use of the boomerang was awkward. Not real responsive to what I was doing.

I just hope that everybody doesn't have a really annoying voice. You know, the arrogant supposedly "manly" voice that superheroes have.
