Today at the San Diego Comic Con, LEGO announced that they plan to produce a The LEGO Movie Video Game to tie in with the movie being produced by Warner Bros. The LEGO Movie Video Game will probably come out this April 2014, around the same time as the actually film.
The LEGO Movie Video Game will cast players as average minifigure Emmet, who due to a series of unfortunate events has somehow become viewed as the only person able to save the world. What follows is a quest to stop an evil tyrant, with Emmet needing to become the hero everyone thinks he already is before it’s too late.
Managing director of TT Games Tom Stone said, “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. 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 game will include 90 characters and 15 levels, with more information to be available closer to release. The first screenshots can be seen below.
