It's not long now before the launch of Lego Dimensions, and here we have an exclusive trailer for the Scooby Doo levels, as well as a close look at how this will play on the Wii U.
While it's not right to have favourites, Scooby has to be up there with Back to the Future and Ghostbusters as a fan favourite brand. He's one of 14 franchises included in the game that can be played with just the starter pack.
As you can see in the trailer, the main adventure takes players through 14 levels which suggests there is one for each of the included brands. Additional adventure levels for some brands can be purchased via the Level packs. Access to playable characters and the related open worlds are via the Team and Fun packs.
The Scooby Doo levels have a unique look to them, recreating the classy hand-drawn feel and sounding spot on with excellent voice work. Also, happily there's not a Scrappy Doo in sight.
Locations include iconic haunted houses, abandoned circuses, secret bookcase doors and the like. There's a great moment when Scooby and Shaggy dress up as old women to hide from their pursuer, just as they do in the cartoon.
Other brands are also included in the trailer. Ghostbusters, Ninjago and Superman are up first before a sneak peak at a Gauntlet-inspired level. Other open-world locations also feature like Hill Valley, the Ghostbusters fire station HQ and even Homer Simpson's house.
Add Scooby to Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and Doctor Who and you have the perfect way to use your Wii U to revisit Christmases past. The question is whether it will be this, Disney Infinity 3.0 or Skylanders Superchargers under your tree this year.
Lego Dimensions will release on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on September 27th in US and 29th in UK.
