Players can become Master Builders on eight different paltforms.
Lego has already stirred up a bit of excitement with its Warner Bros.-fueled 'The Lego Movie,' and it follows that the property which just so happens to feature the Lego license and the DC license among other Warner properties, would need a video game to truly exploit its collection of pop geek culture bits.
Naturally, Traveller's Tales, the devloper behind the last half decade plus of good-to-excellent Lego games, is behind the production of the game. It is not yet known if the movie's considerable voice talent, including Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrall, and Elizabeth Banks will be a large part of the game.
What is clear is that the game will not be limited to a few platforms. 'The Lego Movie Videogame' is coming to the Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, 3DS, and the PS Vita.
From Warner Bros. and TT Games, "In a scenario drawn from the film, The LEGO Movie Videogame puts LEGO kids into the role of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Players guide him as he is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared."
'The Lego Move Videogame' is expected to release alongside the movie in 2014.
