Fans of the LEGO themed games will be excited to hear that a sequel to the LEGO Batman game has been seemingly confirmed thanks to the artwork that features inside an instruction booklet that comes with the new range of LEGO Super Hero toys.
According to the report at MCV adverts for LEGO Batman 2 – Super Heroes appear in the featured booklet, listing the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS and Wii consoles as the platforms the new game is expected to appear on. The artwork that confirms the new game features other DC comic characters Wonder Woman and Superman, both of which are expected to get their own LEGO toy sets. The Joker, Lex Luther and Green Lantern are other DC characters that are also expected to get their own toy sets.
As MCV explains the new LEGO Super Hero range of toys, which includes characters from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics, is not due for official release until next year. The Marvel related toy sets are expected to arrive in time with the comic’s next movie The Avengers next summer and although there is no specific date for the Batman toy set arrival, it is reported to be arriving before the Marvel toy sets early next year.
Nothing official has been confirmed about the LEGO Batman 2 video game as of yet, despite it first being announced back in the summer by Warner Bros. Interactive. Speculation about the release date of the game suggests it may arrive with the release of the latest Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, which is expected in July. When do you think LEGO Batman 2 will arrive? What did you think of the original LEGO Batman game?
