Spruce Bruce: Lego Batman 3 - Beyond Gotham

Same Bat-time, same bat-space

If I decide to journey beyond Manchester of a weekend, I might wander as far as Sheffield or Leeds. Maybe a village pub if I'm in the mood for something a little more quaint. Occasionally, I'm even tempted to heard north, across the border into Scotland. Chances are, once I get beyond the front door of my flat, I'll land in a local drinking haunt though.

A new trailer for Lego Batman 3 shows what happens when Bruce Wayne goes 'beyond Gotham'. It's space. He goes to space in some sort of BatRocket. I think he goes to other dimensions as well and at one point Robin Plasticman turns into a fighter plane (which makes more sense - thanks to @rhamorim for correcting my ludicrous error). This is why Wayne is a billionaire vigilante and I'm a dishevelled games journalist. The man has ambition (and bucketloads of inherited wealth).

I am super-hyped for this, even though it's not out until the back end of the year. I like the Lego games and I like DC Comics, even though sticking with the latter sometimes feels like more of a chore than a pleasure. Lego Batman 3 - which is essentially Lego Justice League or Lego DC - has oodles of characters, from Mister Mxyzptlk to Adam West.

Sadly, it doesn't look like Will Arnett is on Batman duties. All Lego Batman should be Will Arnett though. In fact, all Batman should be Will Arnett.
