This is no surprise but confirmation comes that Lego Lord of the Rings will be released in the Autumnal phase of 2012. I was quite disconcerted when the Joker started talking in a video for the next Lego Batman, which looks quite superb, but the trailer for Lego of That Ring goes even further, re-enacting scenes from the film and using the dialogue right in there. I’m not sure I like it and I hope it’s just for the trailer. I like the comedic and intentionally stripped back take on the source material the previous games have presented. Watch and see what you make of it all.
It’s also probably time for everyone to pitch in about what the next Lego game would be in an ideal world. Doctor Who always seems like a popular choice. I’m going to go with Game of Thrones, or possibly Mad Men. I’d take Tintin too.
