Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed Tuesday the release date of "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham," along with the game's shiny, new box art.
According to the press releases issued today from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, "LEGO Batman 3" will arrive in North America on November 11th, while Europe will receive the game on November 14th. Expanding further on the LEGO world of DC Comics, the new game from series developer Traveller's Tales has Batman and the Justice League traveling the galaxy to stop the evil Brainiac. By misusing the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac has shrunk and captured world after world for his collection. Given the galactic setting, expect to see other space-based DC heroes and villains, such as the Green Lantern and Sinestro, to show up in the game. With "Batman: Arkham Knight" delayed to 2015, "LEGO Batman 3" should give fans of the Dark Knight something to chew on in the meantime.
"LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham" will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and PC. Last October, Oliver Wolf, the senior vice president for international games at Warner Bros., said there were no signs of fatigue for the LEGO game franchise. Game sales of "LEGO Marvel Superheroes" are still holding strong, based on July's NPD sales data. This year also saw the release of "The LEGO Movie Videogame" and "LEGO: The Hobbit;" both games capitalizing on their respected blockbuster hits. There's no doubt there will be more LEGO games on the way after "LEGO Batman 3."
