I really don’t want to be excited about this game. I have so far managed to avoid buying into the hype behind Skylanders and Disney Infinity but it looks like LEGO Dimensions might be the game that breaks me.
This new trailer released a few days ago honestly speaks for itself. We’ve got Batman vs. LEGO Movie Batman. We’ve got Superman in the Land of Oz. We’ve got DC villains wrecking havoc across dimensions. It’s going to be epic.
And the kicker?
Unlike other franchises with add-on packs it looks like all fourteen featured worlds will be playable without the need to buy anything other than the LEGO Dimensions starter pack. The characters it comes with are actually really cool, too. You’ll start out leading Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle through various worlds and you could presumably explore the whole game with just those three.
And that is another nail in my wallet’s coffin come September. Seriously, though, the starting price is $99.99 – yikes!
But if the actual game is as awesome as this trailer then it’ll be more than worth it.
