- About Us
The adorable Dark Knight is back to defend Gotham City from blocky, plastic ne’er do-wells. But this time he’s brought a few pals from the Justice League to help with his war on the stackable building blocks of evil. He’ll be joined by several of DC Comic’s top-tier characters in Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes.
Other Justice League characters confirmed are Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, but given the roster of playable characters in the Lego games we can expect to see quite a few more familiar faces from DC’s line up. Robin, of course, will be joining his mentor once again.
The game will still be set in Gotham, and will remain Batman-centric, rather than being a full blown DC Universe or Justice League game (But don’t be surprised if that happens in a couple of years). Villains confirmed are The pre-requisite Clown Prince of Crime, and evil genius Lex Luthor.
New gadgets and outfits include Batman’s Power Suit and Robin’s “Hazard Cannon” plus the other heroes will have their own sets of powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.
Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes will come out in Summer 2012 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, DS, 3DS, Wii, and Vita. You can see the full press release at the Lego gaming website.
