Warner Bros. announced The Lego Movie Videogame this week, a video game tie-in to a movie about a toy. We’re consequentially expecting the world to end when the toy-movie-video game comes out next year for just about everything – that’s PS4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, Vita, and 3DS if you’re after specifics.
The game pits players as Emmet, acted by Everwood star Chris Pratt in the film, the figurine hero of the movie who’s mistakenly identified as the Master Builder capable of saving the world. Going by early screenshots, it looks like the game won’t deviate far from the tried-and-tested formula of platforming, exploration, and construction.
There’s no news on whether or not the movie’s all-star cast, including Will Arnett (as Batman), Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, and Elizabeth Banks, features in the game. We’d have to say excluding Arnett in particular would be a huge mistake.
