A few months ago the new LEGO Dimensions was launched here (I wrote about it here). Basically, It's a LEGO-themed adventure video game that features LEGO figures that can be played within the game when you put them on a portal. It's published by Warner Bros, and can be played on PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
To tie in with the film launch (I'm guessing?) Dimensions has just released the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, featuring Batgirl and Robin, and players can play the whole movie by joining them as they fight off Joker and his crew of villians.
This set includes a Bat-Computer gateway build, buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures, a 3-in-1 Batwing vehicle, six new game levels and THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE Adventure World with a Battle Arena.
The six levels are:
- The Energy Plant
- The Fortress of Solitude
- Arkham Attack
- Attack of the Uber Villains
- The Phantom Zone
- The Final Showdown
"Awesome" is the word my son has used to describe this Story Pack. who spent much of last weekend playing it with his bestie. What he loves is that he gets to build LEGO before the game starts, and as with all character toy games, play with the physical characters. He found the game a lot of fun, especially after seeing the movie, though seeing the movie is definitely not a prerequisite for the game.
The Story Pack is R599 and is available from Loot and Takealot.
