We reported towards the end of February that LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was set to blast onto the Wii U this Spring, however with Spring ending this month and still no official release date, that didn't seem to be the case.

News has now emerged that Batman and co. will hit Nintendo's new console next month. Several online retailers including Amazon and GameStop have the sequel listed for 21st May, and online site Joystiq has confirmed with GameStop that the listing is the real deal.

The game has already seen a release on the Wii and 3DS, but are you Wii U owners looking forward to the full-fat HD release? Let us know in the comments section below.
