The announcement trailer itself was worth it! I mean it has Christopher Lloyd reprising his famous role as Doc Brown! What more do you need?
WB Games announced that characters from DC Comics( LEGO Superman, LEGO Aquaman and LEGO Bane), Back to the Future(LEGO Doc Brown minifigure ), and LEGO Ninjango(Sensei Wu and Lloyd minifigures) have all been added to the game. The game already has LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and Wyldstyle as the core package. These additional characters will be bonus sets.
The game “merges physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay.” The packs “ will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as special in-game abilities.” You build something out of Lego’s then place it on the pad and it comes to life in the game. Everything is interchangable with no restrictions on what you can build. You can build up to 7 items including characters, weapons, and vehicles. So you could have Batman in the Delorean from Back to the Future.
The game comes out on September 27th, 2015 across all consoles.
