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?
