Much like the first Lego Movie itself, the first Lego Movie video game was surprisingly dope. The Lego games in general are some of the best and most consistent casual kids games out there, but even compared to its peers the Lego Movie video game stood out. Maybe because the source material was so strong. Maybe because it actually rendered its whole world out of Lego pieces instead of specific assets. Or maybe because it wasn’t tied to one specific #brand. But it was awesome.
And hopefully everything continues to be awesome when it comes to Lego Movie video games. Check out this new teaser trailer for The Lego Movie 2 Videogame.
The Lego Movie 2 arrive in theaters in just a few days. And presumably what we know about that move will also inform what’s going on in this game. The Lego world of Emmet Brickowski remains a colorful post-apocalypse after the Duplo invasion. Perhaps those bigger, baby-friendly bricks will be incorporated in the construction puzzles? Give us a big open wasteland to explore like Mad Max for kids.
The box-art prominently features mini-doll General Sweet Mayhem from the Systar System, a new villain played by Stephanie Beatriz working for Tiffany Haddish’s Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi. We’re also looking forward to more Rex Dangervest, Chris Pratt’s new role that’s basically a pastiche of all previous Chris Pratt roles.
And like all Lego video games, we expect The Lego Movie 2 Videogame to be chock full of characters to play as like Masters Builders Lucy, MetalBeard, and Batman. Plus President Business is just too cool a villain to not bring back. WB says these characters and over 100 more can all be smashed together. Hopefully one of them is Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The Lego Movie 2 Videogame releases February 26 on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more on Lego games check out our thoughts on Lego DC Super-Villains and Lego Incredibles and read about the shared history of Lego games and Lego movies.
