    LEGO Batman: The Videogame Coming To PCs And Consoles
    7:26 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Traveller's Tales Games have announced work on LEGO Batman: The Videogame. The game is planned for release in 2008 for PC as well as next-generation and current generation console platforms. In a style similar to that of both LEGO Star Wars games, Batman will give players the chance to play as LEGO versions of the Dark Knight and other characters from the legendary DC Comics series.

    "We're sure our fans will be excited to know that we have the same fantastic team at Traveller's Tales responsible for LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Star Wars II working on LEGO Batman," said Tom Stone, Director of TT Games Publishing.

    "There's a special magic to the LEGO incarnation of Batman that makes him accessible to a younger generation of his fans," said Paul Levitz, President, DC Comics. "We look forward to the videogame version extending this fantasy."

    The LEGO Batman: The Videogame story unfolds with Batman's greatest foes escaping from Arkham Asylum and creating mayhem throughout Gotham City. Tracking criminals, including The Joker and The Penguin, players will utilize Batman's gadgets as well as build and operate fantastic vehicles in one or two player cooperative gameplay.
    A recent Gamasutra interview with TT Games' Johnathan Smith revealed that the company is considering more unannounced LEGO themed titles in addition to Batman.

    There is no word yet on the possibility of a Mac version of LEGO Batman. Follow the links below for more information.
