LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham arrives in November and will be the latest major entry in the popular series; it's coming to Wii U while there'll also be an alternative version on 3DS. Warner Bros. Interactive has now announced day one DLC for the title along with a Season Pass. The trouble is that the Wii U isn't listed as a platform for the Season Pass, with its fate on the individual DLC packs being unclear.
The following content has been confirmed for the Season Pass on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
The Dark Knight Pack (available launch day)
Experience the heart-pounding chase scene from the iconic film complete with cool vehicles and explosive action. Play as the legendary Dark Knight and Commissioner Gordon, as well as the Joker and his goons as they chase down Harvey Dent’s police escort. Bane and Catwoman from the third film are also playable.
Man of Steel Pack (available launch day)
Help Jor-El, his wife Lara and their robot Kelex send the infant Superman “Kal-el” into space towards the safety of Earth as Krypton falls into chaos. Find a way inside Jor-El’s home, fight General Zod’s invading forces and battle against Zod himself to save Superman.
Batman 75th Pack (available launch day)
Play as Joker and Harley, setting up a variety of celebration set pieces. Be the Batman and play as some of the most iconic faces of Batman through the years, including his first appearance in Detective Comics #27.
Access to Future DLC Content
Gain access to three additional game packs, featuring new playable characters, vehicles and levels. Details about the additional content will be revealed at a later date.
In total there'll be six DLC packs, each with a mission level that can also be played in Free Play — over 40 characters, vehicles and customisations will be included across the packs. The Season Pass will cost $14.99 / £12.79, with each individual pack costing $2.99 / £2.55 — we've reached out for clarification on whether individual packs will be available on Wii U.
It's surprising that this Season Pass DLC isn't listed for Wii U at present, especially as Nintendo versions of these games typically perform relatively well — better than on PC, at least. Whether there are issues and limitations with the Wii U infrastructure — such as the eShop — with season passes is unclear.
