Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is coming to the Wii U this spring, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games announced today. The game sold 3.4 million copies at launch last summer for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PC, DS, 3DS, and PlayStation Vita and was June's best-selling title in the United States.

DC Super Heroes for the Wii U will use the GamePad controller as an interactive map that allows players to navigate through Gotham City and choose characters. In addition, the game is playable in its entirety on the GamePad through off-TV mode.

A sequel to 2008's Lego Batman, DC Super Heroes has players encountering a suite of famous fictional heroes, including Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Green Lantern, and they must save Gotham City from the grip of Lex Luthor and the Joker.

In addition to the new characters, DC Super Heroes lets gamers explore new regions of Gotham City in an array of vehicles, including the famous batmobile and batwing. The game also offers up new gadgets and suits, as well as new abilities like fight, super-breath, and heat vision.

I was going to get this on the Ps Vita but then decided not too. Since I got bored of the Vita. But since I'm enjoying the Wii U a lot (a lack of games lately though). This could be a nice time to pick this up. But I'm not the biggest fan of Lego games, I may stick with the Lego City one.

Yeah, that's nice I guess. But I didn't buy this system for old ports. Nintendo adds old games and the list of new ones gets scratched off all the time. Here's a secret Nintendo: We want new games, exclusive games, now. Shhhh MS and Sony may catch on to the idea. Thanks.

Using the screen on the controller as a mini-map of sorts is a good idea.

I was actually about to get this game and the Lego Star Wars and Lego Harry Potter games for the Wii to go along with Lego City Undercover. I'm glad I waited on this one. I'll get it for the Wii U instead.

Good for Wii U owners who didn't play this on other platforms,
and have a Wii U now and wanted to to play this game.

Yet another port of yet another old game.  That's really what this system needs to thrive.  Keep it up Nintendo... *eyeroll*

Really TT? I can understand LEGO City and Marvel, but Batman 2 (standalone), which was already out? If you're going to do a belated port, how about a complete LEGO Harry Potter, like you did with both the first two LEGO Star Wars games for PS3, 360, and Wii?

Yes, ignore the exclusive titles like Lego City Undercover, just focus on the ports.

@Celsius765 Ports are good...stop flaming for no reason. If a game is released on another system, kudos. Why not spread the gaming love to other consoles for people who haven't played the game?

Heck, since this is about Batman, why not do a combined port of LEGO Batman 1 and 2 with some tweaks and new extras. You know, like what you did with LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga?

@jcnba28 @Celsius765 boredom. Wii U doesn't really need this game since its already out and theres already another Lego game coming that interested folk may as well buy

@Celsius765 @jcnba28  Or there are those of us who don't own a console right now and are thinking of getting a Wii U right now.  I was going to get the Wii version of this but now I don't have to.  For those that did not buy a current gen system all of those "ports" are still new games to play, and I'd rather play this on a console with my family then on a PC.  Don't be so narrow minded.  Day 1 purchase for me.

@jcnba28 @Celsius765 then they should buy LCU and find this one cheaper on another console .two games more money left in pocket
