TT Games and Warner Bros. are adapting the upcoming movie sequel into a game sequel
The LEGO Movie is getting a sequel next year and TT Games will be adapting the second film about everyone’s favorite little yellow people into a video game sequel.
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame was announced Tuesday and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
The game’s release date coincides with the movie hitting theaters early next year and will be playable starting Feb. 26, 2019, according to a pre-order page linked by Major Nelson’s Xbox Blog. It will retail at $39.99.
According to a press release announcing the game, “alien invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins [and] it is now up to Emmet, Lucy and a host of heroic characters to go beyond their world and save their friends from the strange inhabitants of the Systar System.”
“Packed with [fan-favorite] and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore,” said Arthur Parsons, the head of design for TT Games Studios in the release.
The game will feature some sort of building mode where “fans…will have fun rebuilding their own world using tools to create roads, change the landscape and build structures to unlock more rewards and missions.”
