LEGO Batman 2 Launch Trailer is Super

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

A true blockbuster

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes arrives today on Wii and 3DS in North America, with Europe only having to wait until the end of this week. The LEGO titles are prolific and consistently similar, but clearly have something going for them with the sheer range of franchises and sequels released.

As the name suggests, this is the second time that Batman has donned his plastic cape, but this title introduces heroes and villains from across the DC universe to help and hinder the caped crusader: that means all the more characters to be the victims of irreverent humour, in that case. To celebrate the launch a new trailer has been released that shows off plenty of action; we would say to watch out for plot spoilers but, it's a LEGO game, so does that matter?

Haha. That was brilliant. Already pre-ordered the Wii version (£23 at amazon uk I think). 8.5/10 from IGN (for what its worth). Don't think the 3DS version is open world like the Wii one.

love batman, hate superman. why do they have to be friends? Probably won't get this because all lego games essentially play the same, but it looks good for people who have never played one before. looks like it has some good humor though!

While I probably won't get it, this will sell well as all Lego games By TT Games do.

I've never played any of the Lego games, but this one might change that. Looks interesting.

"...plot spoilers but, it's a LEGO game"

I think Batman games have less plot than LEGO games. Only Mario games have less plot.

I was going to write this off as more of the first but the voice acting alone almost makes it an entirely different game (listen up Nintendo, Link doesn't have to speak, but everybody else needs a real voice). It's almost not even a LEGO game anymore. And it looks a lot more violently hectic w/ the giant Joker robot. Probably a good idea not to have a lot of vase breaking in a trailer ;-)
I want LotR more but we'll still get this. My 7 yr. old loves this stuff.

Thanks for posting something about a Wii game, it's been awhile. And not everybody is going to get a Wii U this year.

What's the rumour mill say about Nintendo either discontinuing or continuing to sell the Wii? I don't think the Gamecube lasted too long after the Wii came out. Neither did the Xbox. I think the PS2 can still be found though if 1 looks hard enough. Lack of BC will do that. A $99 Wii would probably still get alot of holiday sales but it wouldn't help $300 Wii U sales all that much.

@warioswoods I found the demo a bit slow,it's been a while since i played the first game(Wii version),but it seemed much slower or maybe i am just crazy.

I'll give this and Lego Lord of The Rings a chance and then i am done with the Lego franchise(unless something really grabs my attention).

I think I'll get the PS3 version someday.

WHY WON'T THEY REVEAL ANYMORE CHARACTERS?! My purchase depends heavily on the inclusion of Martian Manhunter.

The 3DS demo was incredible. Felt like a whole game was really long. This trailer is hilarious.

Just found this in the IGN review: "The Gold Bricks are these little challenges inside the greater world that keep you on your toes and have you trying out the more than 50-character roster that includes the Flash, Hush, Martian Manhunter and more."

I am so getting this.

EDIT: Just realized MM was in the launch trailer. Oops.

I really loved the 3DS demo. I thought it was really fun beating up enemies, and chucking Batarangs at them. Also, grabbing enemies and chucking them at the walls was pretty fun and satisfying as well. Plus, it was pretty fun and creative using the Sensor suit, sneaking up on enemies and taking them down. Also, you have to admit, beating up Robin does bring up a laugh or two.

Ah, the satisfaction of punching superman until he breaks into pieces over and over again, I would just prefer that they didn't speak.

I had a bit of fun with the 3DS demo. Still not sure if I'll get it. The 3D effect was non-existent though.
