Lego movie game coming to Xbox One, PS4

The Lego Movie Videogame launching in 2014 for current- and next-generation consoles, as well as Wii U, PC, 3DS, and PS Vita.

by

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games today announced The Lego Movie Videogame, due to launch in 2014 alongside the film for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, 3DS, and PlayStation Vita.

The Lego Movie Videogame, like the movie, follows Emmet, a "perfectly average" Lego minifigure who is "mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world." Players will guide him on his quest to stop an evil tyrant.

In the game, players can collect and use various Lego instruction pages to build construction sets or wield the power of the "Master Builders" to create new objects. More than 90 characters will be included in the game, which is spread across 15 levels.

The Lego Movie hits theaters in February 2014 with Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation, Zero Dark Thirty) voicing Emmet.

The movie boasts a suite of Hollywood veterans, including Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption, The Sum of All Fears), Liam Neeson (Schindler's List, Batman Begins), and Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Zoolander).

It is unclear if Pratt and the rest of the film's voice cast will lend their voices to The Lego Movie Videogame. A Warner Bros. representative was not immediately available to comment.

Wait...what?

A videogame? based on a movie? based on a toy? that was turned into a videogame? with movies based on those videogames? That were already based on movies?

Take time to read through all of that, but trust me: None of it repeats the same product.

Lego Movie Videogame; Lego Movie; LEGO; Lego Star Wars; Lego Star Wars:The Empire Strikes Out; Star Wars.

And yet I keep buying these games. Keep making them.

It seems Lego video games will be here for a while. Maybe next gen we will see a Lego video game look like the CGI they have in the movie trailer. Now that would be some amazing graphics!

Don't be too quick to judge the movie. Unlike the games and Lego shows, they gave the movie a stop motion look.

I'm sure the game will be pretty good just like most of the LEGO games. However, I wish I could un-hear that this movie even exists. Who'd have thought there was a legal way to take advantage of children.

I didn't even know there was going to be a Lego movie. When i saw The Lego Movie Videogame I thought it was a joke. Still, the Lego games have been good fun so I look forward to it.

Master Builders... What is this HALO? Just Kidding.

I hope this game is good. My 5-year old and I have been playing Lego Batman 2. He loves it and its actually the first Lego I have wanted to play. I may get this for him and I to play.

Sounds interesting. I'm more interested as to why this isn't going to the WiiU

"Lego movie game" sounds like an English translation of a Japanese phrase.

Legos were invented in Scotland in 1844 by Ricky Gervais' great-great-great granduncle, Shifty Pablo.

Lego games are great and perfect for all ages, but I think they're starting to abuse the franchise license.

Only thing I ask is that the developers never release a "Lego: Twilight". Please. Have mercy.

Anyone else look at the screenshot and think "if GTA was made of legos?"

I hope there's a movie based on the game based on the movie. That would be amazeballs.

@DeadrisingX1 I don't know, it's so bad it's almost good.  Like the kids version of "Snakes on a Plane".

@Patohua1 That's gonna be a documentary about the game that was inspired by the movie, and now they are making a game of it.

There's a Trailer for the upcoming Lego Movie and from the looks of it, it's not bad.

Sorry but MS is not ready for Lego Halo yet. Maybe on Xbox One but not in this current-gen.

@Lhomity Instead all we get is a game based on a movie based on a game based on a toy.

@JBStone1981 From an actual English translation of a Japanese rental car manual:

"If a person obstacles your path, trumpet him melodiously.  If he continues to obstacle your path, tootle him with vigor."
