Hobbit Screen

Not too long ago we brought you the happy news that LEGO The Hobbit has been confirmed for 2014, with the Wii U and 3DS included in its release lineup. It'll cover events from the first two films of the film trilogy, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug, and like those movies will probably take enough creative licence with the original short novel to not actually resemble Tolkien's work in any meaningful way. But still, it has orcs and a dragon, so what are we complaining about.

As is standard for the series you'll be able to control various characters that have different abilities, with plenty of attractive settings to take in. Warner Bros. has now released a shiny new trailer to show the game off, with some typically humorous moments and some select lines from the movies themselves. It looks like typical LEGO fare which means, in all likelihood, that it could be an awful lot of fun.
