The LEGO Movie is getting an official video game, and LEGO expert TT Games is in charge, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced.
Set for release in 2014 alongside the motion picture and toy sets, The LEGO Movie Videogame puts players into the role of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.
Players must guide Emmet as he is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant.
The game will feature more than 90 characters inspired by the film and 15 levels to beat.
In addition to the core gameplay, players will be able to collect and use LEGO instruction pages to build construction sets or utilise the power of the Master Builders to virtually build LEGO creations along the way.
“We’re thrilled to be able to give kids the joy of reliving Emmet’s adventures in becoming virtual Master Builders with The LEGO Movie Videogame,” said Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games Publishing. “Players will be taking on the ultimate mission to save the LEGO world and use their virtual building prowess to build unimaginable sets and creations.”
The LEGO Movie Videogame will be released in 2014 for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, 3DS and PS Vita.
