So, LEGO Dimensions, this is a game that know what it's got and isn't afraid to flaunt it. Aiming to sell LEGO toys and a new game to adults with disposable income? Simple, get Christopher Lloyd to revive his legendary Doc Brown role - and we mean legendary - for a commercial. Check and mate.

The latest commercial is celebrating the inclusion of Back to the Future as a franchise, and is the very definition of fan service.

Beyond that it's been confirmed that at any one time you "can bring up to seven characters, vehicles and weapons" into the game, with no limits on combinations. So Batman could drive the DeLorean; just process that for a moment.

More level packs, team packs and fun packs have also been announced that will no doubt cost a huge amount to collect.
