Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released early last year, but it looks like Warner Bros. Interactive is keen on bringing the game to Wii U as well. The game will release sometime this spring and it looks like it’ll be done right, as Warner Bros. makes mention of GamePad-exclusive functions for the game.
Other details include off-TV support and co-op between a player playing on the TV and one on the GamePad, which cuts out the need for split screen. Even if this is an older game that was released on last-gen consoles last year, I’m eager to see what improvements Warner Bros. can make to the series, as the Lego games are shaping up to be real winners.
Check out the press release below:
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will take advantage of the innovative Wii U™ GamePad controller. Players will navigate through Gotham City using an enhanced interactive map and select their favorite DC Comics characters to assemble a powerful team of heroes, all with the use of the controller’s touchscreen. They can even enjoy the entire game experience on the GamePad in off-TV mode, or have a second player join in on the TV, so they can fight crime together without having to share a single screen.
The award-winning LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes gives players the chance to step into the shoes of the Caped Crusader and fully explore a LEGO version of Gotham City. Once again under threat from the Joker, Batman must defend Gotham with the help of powerful friends like Superman and Robin, to put a stop to the diabolical plans of his nemesis and his entire team of super villains including Lex Luthor, The Penguin and Harley Quinn. Encounter all of the Dark Knight’s iconic allies and enemies in a charming, hilarious, family-friendly adventure full of exciting gameplay.
