E3 2014: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
Coming this fall to all major consoles, handhelds, and PC is the next installment in the LEGO Batman franchise. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is coming and will see the Caped Crusader taking his fancy suits and wonderful toys up into space.
Following the events of DC Superheroes, Batman and Robin are sent off into the great void of space to stop Brainiac from destroying Earth. To accomplish this goal, Brainiac is using the power of the Lantern Rings to miniaturize worlds and place them in his shrunken city collection. It is up to Batman and a host of DC superheroes and villains to travel to the different Lantern Worlds and collect the Rings.
The game will feature over 150 unique, unlockable characters which (utilizing the system put in place by LEGO Marvel) includes extra big characters like Killer Croc and Solomon Grundy. You will visit and explore familiar locations like the Batcave, Hall of Justice and the Watchtower. There will also be new abilities and gadgets added into the mix. To throw us off a little bit, Brainiac's mind control and the power of the Lantern Rings bring unexpected twists to the characters' personalities. What this will bring to light is yet to be seen.
As a huge fan of the LEGO games in general, I cannot wait to get my hands on this title. These games are fun, cute, and the drop in drop out co-op is a huge plus for parents to play with their kids.
