Enter a new LEGO dimension

LEGO

TT Games are synonymous with the LEGO franchise nowadays. They have so much LEGO experience under their belts you could almost believe that they were made of plastic.

Warner Brothers Games and TT have announced today that they will be entering the Skylanders and Disney Infinity game market, with LEGO Dimensions.

This will allow you to combine all the characters from the LEGO franchises in one game. The Starter Pack will include; the LEGO Toy Pad, which allows players to transport special LEGO minifigures and other LEGO objects into the game; the bits to build the LEGO Gateway and three fantastic figures, LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and Wyldstyle from the LEGO Movie. They’ll also be able to jump into the LEGO Batmobile, which is also included.

TT Games’ Founder and Creative Director, Jon Burton said.

When kids play with LEGO bricks, they build beyond the singular brands, intermixing all of their favourite characters and universes, and we have come up with a way for players to experience that in games. Now, for the first time in a videogame, LEGO fans can play in the virtual world and in the real world – combining everything without restrictions. Imagine putting LEGO Gollum from The Lord of the Rings behind the wheel of the LEGO Delorean in New Ninjago City – the creative play is endless.

LEGO Group VP for Digital Games, Niels Jørgensen added.

LEGO Diemsions is unlike anything that we have ever done. It further extends the LEGO play experience into the digital world with all of the characters, humour and action of the LEGO videogames now combined with the fun of LEGO minifigure and model building. We are thrilled to expand our partnership with TT Games to explore ways in which physical and digital LEGO play can merge in meaningful ways for children.

The LEGO fun won’t stop at the three figures you get with the Starter Pack then. In 2015, TT Games plan to release the Back to the Future pack with LEGO Marty McFly, 2 DC comics packs with Wonder Woman and Cyborg, 3 Lord of the Rings packs with LEGO Gollum, Gimli and Legolas figures as well as packs from the LEGO Movie, Ninjago, Wizard of Oz and more.

When will all of this LEGO fun start? Well, the plan is that it will be available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 from the 29th of September.
