Batman and his superhero friends are making a return to the land of LEGOs, as Warner Bros. Interactive today began shipping LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes in North America for every system under the sun. For those keeping notes at home, that means the Xbox 360, Wii, PS3, 3DS, PS Vita, DS and PC all have a version of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes sitting on store shelves today.
In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, kids and gamers of all ages team up with Batman and Robin and their favorite DC Comics super heroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash in an original LEGO adventure. Many of the scenes and characters featured in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes can also be found in the LEGO DC Universe Super Heroes toy collection, which was introduced earlier this year. The toy line includes five construction sets, such as The Batcave and three buildable, detailed action figures.
players take on the role of the Caped Crusader, Boy Wonder and other DC Comics super heroes as they unite to thwart the plans of nefarious evildoers Lex Luthor and The Joker in their diabolical quest to cause destruction and mayhem. Players are put in control of exciting new super abilities such as heat vision, freeze-breath and free-roaming flight, which they can use to explore a vast new Gotham City full of hidden secrets, collectible LEGO bricks and vehicles to drive and fly.
The console games feature easy drop-in/drop-out co-op with dynamic split screen, giving family members of all ages a chance to take part in the action-packed LEGO adventure. The handheld games include a Justice League Alliance game mode, a set of battle challenges which pits the entire Justice League against the most evil villains in the DC Universe.
