After the initial rumours that a LEGO game featuring DC villains would be releasing at some point, last week saw a tease be shared with the world hinting at an official release. Now, just a few days later, the reveal is finally here - LEGO DC Super Villains is definitely a thing, and it's coming to Switch this October.

Players will find themselves at the centre of a villain-centric (and quite frankly barmy-looking) adventure packed with all your favourite locations and characters from the DC universe. This is the first time that you'll have the ability to create and play as your own super villain throughout the game, and your character becomes the centre of the story, teaming up with an iconic variety of villains to adventure with along the way.

As you progress through the game you'll unlock new abilities and powers, and can continue to customise your character to take on the evil threat. Friends and family can join the story mode at any time with a two-player, local co-op experience where players can team up in epic boss fights.

An exclusive LEGO minifigure, Lex Luthor Superman, will come with the physical version of the Deluxe Edition (which features the main game content, Season Pass content, and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack) while digital consumers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack with their Deluxe Edition.

The game arrives on October 16th. Will you be giving this one a go?
