Telltale are making a Batman game. Take a trip to Crime Alley and other Gotham hotspots in the brief teaser below.
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’m always slightly disappointed when a new Lego game announcement arrives and it doesn’t involve a fresh license. Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham looks like a Justice League game rather than a simple spot of the moody Bruces, but I can’t help but feel something other than superheroes would make a pleasant change. Lego Hammer Horror maybe, or Lego Warhammer. It probably doesn’t help that I saw Days Of Future Past yesterday – so many superpowers all on one screen. Best bits? Blink doing the best portals since Portal and Quicksilver doing just about anything. The superheroes from the other place are below.
Or at least, as real as tiny god people from the bottomless depths of mute rooster boy’s imagination can be. But yes, the oft-rumored DC edition of 5th Cell’s boundless bowl of alphabet soup – titled Scribblenauts Unmasked – is now official, and it looks to be quite the thing. Adam expressed concern that attaching an official license to Scribblenauts might leave players with a world they can’t truly own, but this one has far more up its sleeve than DC’s tried-and-true roster of people who don’t understand how underwear work. On top of boasting every hero ever (incredibly obscure ones included, of course), you can make your own from a veritable toy factory of bits and pieces. Leap the break in a single bound for the debut trailer.
