Warner Bros. Interactive announced LEGO: The Hobbit late last year with a teaser trailer and a few screenshots, but no mention of a release date. Today the publisher announced that LEGO: The Hobbit will be coming to the Wii U and other platforms on April 8 in North America, and April 11 in Europe.
A slew of new screenshots was released with the announcement, showing off Gandalf and the dwarven crew attempting to escape Goblin Town after angering the Goblin King. While this batch of screenshots focuses on that particular battle, the actual game will be based on both of the released movies so far, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug.
