LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham


Check out the newest LEGO Video Game

I loved both Batman 1 and 2, so I’m totally down for a 3rd Batman video game.

Here’s what Gameinformer has to say about the game:

TT Games latest Lego Batman adventure takes DC’s cast of heroes and villains into outer space to stop Brainiac.

Lego Batman 3 takes place right after the second game in the series, and a recent demo of the title showed off a few sequences depicting The Legion of Doom’s capture of the Watchtower which showcased some of the game’s standout features.

Switching suits no longer requires a Suit Signal, as any of the suits you’ve unlocked (naturally there are a host of new ones) can be selected via a radial wheel. In Batman and other Justice League members’ attempt to retake the Watchtower above Earth, Cyborg changes into a washing machine and mech, and we get a glimpse of Robin’s Illumination suit. Also on display was a Defender-like gamplay sequence as Batman takes on the Joker-controlled Watchtower in the Bat-Rocket.

As the game progresses and goes deeper into the universe, both characters from The Legion of Doom and Justice League will team up to take on Brainiac, who is using the Lantern Rings to shrink worlds. TT Games says that the title has over 150 characters from the DC Universe to unlock.

Finally, the game also introduces a bunch of VR mini-missions to mix up the gameplay. These include platforming sequences, puzzles, races, and a host more.

Lego Batman 3 comes out this fall for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, 3DS, Vita, and PC.

I wonder if this will lead to some new sets. 😉

  1. Purple Dave Says:

    Well, for the first time ever, two of Batman’s suits will be based on existing minifigs (2012’s Arctic and 2013’s Scuba). His Spacesuit would require two new molds, and Zur-En-Arrh is a strong contender for the now-traditional exclusive minifig (Brainiac is the other likely bet).

    Robin and Flash from the Watchtower are based on existing minifigs, Superman and Wonder Woman are new but reportedly based on their New 52 appearances, Martian Manhunter is an unreleased vintage outfit, Green Lantern is an overdue non-movie design, and Cyborg in this form would require a new mold for the headgear (Cyrus Borg doesn’t have a chinstrap).

    Now Superheroes in general has been declared an Evergreen theme like City and Star Wars (per Kevin Hinkle at BW Ft Wayne 2013), so we’ll get _some_ new sets, but the most we’ve gotten based on the games so far is Luthor’s Deconstruction Ray, which came with a minifig that had nothing to do with the game.

    BTW, Wonder Woman’s nod to The LEGO Movie was cute.
