LEGO Batman 2 Coming To Wii U
Superhero Hype reports that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games’ LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will hit the Wii U in the spring.
The game will take advantage of the Wii U GamePad, as players can navigate through Gotham City with an interactive map and select their favorite DC comics characters to create a team of heroes with the touchscreen. Players can also play the game in off-TV mode, or have a second player join in on the TV so they can play together without sharing the same screen.
Meanwhile, the film adaptation, LEGO Batman: DC Superheroes Unite, has been given a release date of May 21, 2013.
Here’s a synopsis: The film finds Lex Luthor taking jealousy to new heights when fellow billionaire Bruce Wayne wins the Man of the Year Award. To top Wayne’s accomplishment, Lex begins a campaign for President – and to create the atmosphere for his type of fear-based politics, he recruits the Joker to perfect a Black LEGO Destructor Ray. While wreaking havoc on Gotham, Lex successfully destroys Batman’s technology – forcing the Caped Crusader to reluctantly turn to Superman for help.
