LEGO The Hobbit gameplay video

LEGO The Hobbit is the latest entry in the long-running LEGO game series, and while LEGO The Hobbit will be delayed for a bit on the Wii U, it still looks like a solid LEGO game, judging from the latest Wii U gameplay video.

The video above shows some 20 minutes the LEGO The Hobbit Wii U gameplay, and it looks and runs great. As for gameplay, it seems like it follows the good old LEGO games formula.

LEGO The Hobbit is now available on all platforms except the Wii U. There was no official reason for the delay. Be sure to also check out the LEGO The Hobbit launch trailer as well.

The game will be released on the Wii U on April 22nd.

    Looks good. Never seen the Hobbit. Might try it someday.

    • Carlos Webster

      I agree.

    • Commander Raichu

      me three

    • Mario

      You should. Both the first and the second movie are pretty good.

      • Rinslowe

        The second film especially…

        • Mario

          Oh do we love that dragon fight!

          • Rinslowe

            I thought Legolas’ character changes to reflect a younger more aggressive outlook was the best change… (Compared to LotR)
            And the elves talent at ass-kickery. Great action scenes.
            Everything else was pure eye candy as well. Solid performances for just about every character.
            Desolation of Smaug was up there with the last LotR’s movie – The Retrun of the King, I thought.

      • Sdudyoy

        I watched the first, but I don’t intend to watch the second until the third comes out, but I agree at least the first one was pretty good, but I still prefer the book.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I’ve certainly been a fan of Lego video games. Will be picking this up on Steam, with the possibility of PS4.

      God I love Sony sooo much yet I keep posting stuff here on wii u dailey why??? LOL

      • Greg Lanciotti

        i know. what a complete weirdo. someone is in denial about who their heart belongs to.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          My heart belongs to my wonderful girlfriend. I’m not one to give my heart to material objects or a companies that want my money. I mean, if that’s your thing, then I won’t judge. All sarcasm aside and to answer your last comment towards me days ago, why does it matter what I do on the internet? It’s certainly funny when so many people ask this question. I always tell them the same thing. “Less worrying about what people are doing, and more time on what you do.” It’s that simple. ;P

          • Mario

            Understandable.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Appreciate it.

          • Rinslowe

            “”Less time worrying about what people are doing, and more time on what you do.”

            Oh man… You so need to read that ten times and apply it to yourself mate. Unbelievable, lol.

            What would a games focused Daniel Gonzalez look like???
            Should make for some decent opinion based commenting. Try it…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “Oh man… You so need to read that ten times and apply it to yourself mate. Unbelievable, lol.”

            Yes, it’s certainly good advice. I suggest reading it ten times and apply it to yourself in hopes that it’ll sink in. Unbelievable indeed.

            “What would a games focused Daniel Gonzalez look like???”
            What would a games focused Rinslowe look like???

            “Should make for some decent opinion based commenting. Try it…”

            Thank you for the hubris example. Perhaps you should make some non-imprecise comments. Try it.

            I’d call this a waste of time, but I certainly had at least some fun responding to your self-serving nonsense. Now if you don’t mind good sir, I have to spend some time with the fam. Don’t let that discourage you from responding, but you will certainly waste your valuable time. Cheers mate.

          • Rinslowe

            Denial is your flavour of the day Gonzalez.
            You truly are a lost individual in this world…

      • http://valid.at val berger

        I also plan to buy a PS4. does this make me a Sony Lover? Well I guess from the perspective of some naive kids who ain’t got more than a binary judgement, separating everything into pure love and pure hate, I gotta be. I don’t have a problem about people sharing what they intend to go for. I guess I also don’t really care either, but the point is, I wouldn’t take the time, telling every fanboy who would write ‘I WILL BUY THIS FOR THE WII U’ hat he is such a Nintendo Lover. Sure it’s a Nintendo-Community and people talking about anything else than Nintendo aren’t welcome, it’s ok, go on living in your totalitarian company-branded bubble.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Well said. Kids certainly act like it is a totalitarian society here. I also love the impersonation. Was quite a horrible one at that. They need some practice. ;P

          • Rinslowe

            “Well said. Kids certainly act like it is a totalitarian society here. ”

            It’s too bad that you yourself exhibit the most profound hypocrisy on this site, bar none.
            You really have your eyes closed to the stupidity of your own comments, don’t you…
            Only a few short says ago I recall you giving someone advice on how to comment without looking like the exact same thing as you claim others to be – like trolling for eg…
            And yet here you are once again proving your lack of maturity and intelligence.
            It is true there are a healthy amount of younger or more vocal Wii U fans on this site. (A given obviously IMO).
            But what possesses you to consistently belittle them? Why can’t you see that they are mostly a lot younger than yourself and this is simply how younger individuals see the world at this time.
            You being perhaps even older than I am, should be bringing something more than daily complaints about this site and yet it’s almost all you ever do. That and sly remarks about Nintendo fanbase in general as well as a jaded view of the comany itself and it’s products. The last part not so important. But mate, you need a reality check. Why not focus more on the games and gaming, instead of constantly lowering yourself to nothing more than a conern troll who points out everyone else’s shortcomings. Try being more mature when it comes to dealing with the younger crowd here. And be a bit more tolerable of their views…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well. this one should be easy to pick apart. Let’s begin.

            “It’s too bad that you yourself exhibit the most profound hypocrisy on this site, bar none.
            You really have your eyes closed to the stupidity of your own comments, don’t you…
            Only a few short says ago I recall you giving someone advice on how to comment without looking like the exact same thing as you claim others to be – like trolling for eg…
            And yet here you are once again proving your lack of maturity and intelligence.”

            Looks like we have a pot that has a problem with the kettle again. I guess calling me black a million times just isn’t enough for individuals such as yourself huh? ;P

            “It is true there are a healthy amount of younger or more vocal Wii U fans on this site. (A given obviously IMO)”.

            Certainly your opinion indeed, but I beg to differ. Enough said there. :P

            “But what possesses you to consistently belittle them? Why can’t you see that they are mostly a lot younger than yourself and this is simply how younger individuals see the world at this time.”

            I love this one. That being cause that’s exactly what you do when people don’t see what you see. It amazes me that you continue to waste your time preaching as if it’s some type of religion. Nice one buddy. I’ll keep this one in mind when I need a little chuckle. I’m aware that there are people who are younger than I, but I treat people equally despite their age. If that bothers you, then that’s your own personal problem. :P

            “You being perhaps even older than I am, should be bringing something more than daily complaints about this site and yet it’s almost all you ever do. That an sly remarks about Nintendo fanbase in general as well as a jaded view of the comany itself and it’s products. The last part not so important. But mate, you need a reality check.

Try being more mature when it come to dealing with the younger crowd here. And be a bit more tolerable…”

            I have no idea how old you are, nor do I actually care, but I’ll take it you’re around my age. You appear to bring daily complaints when you respond to my posts, so enough said there. I can certainly live with your opinion. Of course I’m sure you’ll continue to dish out the same nonsense that I have heard several times before. :P

            “The last part not so important. But mate, you need a reality check. Why not focus more on the games and gaming, instead of constantly lowering yourself to nothing more than a concern troll who points out everyone else’s shortcomings. Try being more mature when it come to dealing with the younger crowd here. And be a bit more tolerable…”

            Nah, I’m not interested in your version of reality , but thanks for the offer. I’ll stick to the norm. You have a silly knack for calling people concern trolls when you clearly are concerned over what I have to say on a daily basis, but that’s another story. Last but not least, I’ll be more “mature” when you give up the self fulfilling act. I’ll even make this simpler. If what I have to say bothers you so much, then don’t respond to it? You certainly aren’t bothering me, but only allowing me to further laugh at your implications that don’t affect my life at the slightest or online for that matter. Concern troll much? Food for thought.

          • Rinslowe

            Riight….
            Treating everyone the same when you’re doing nothing but belittle them, is still just belittling them…
            So you really don’t have any idea do you?
            :)

          • nexxus6

            I am not surprised that you got the typical Gonzalez rebuttal of “pot calling the kettle black”, that is pretty much his raising of the white flag. His comebacks have become overly predictable, it is almost disappointing.

          • Rinslowe

            Well, that’s very true. He obviously is pretty squared off with what he does. Which means he’s concern trolling purposefully to effect.
            And yeah, those replies of his are nothing more than an attempt to get you to go on the defensive, taking the focus away from the topic at hand ie; himself.
            The guy must be borderline psychotic…

          • nexxus6

            Well said! (standing ovation)

          • Commander Raichu

            thats a good point

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Hello jrob23 ;P

      • Commander Raichu

        im buying a ps4 soon so i like sony
        microsoft got titanfall and halo thats it why would i just want shooters when ps4 has more variety

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Ill probably have a PS4 by then, so Ill might pick it up fo that too.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        It’s worth the purchase. Has plenty to offer.

      • SacreBlo

        Since you seem to located in Sweden, you can already download the Wii U version from the eShop.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Oh, Ive decided to make my Wii U into a first party only console. I dont want to spend any more money than I did either, so everything I buy is second hand. I rather support third parties on other platforms now that Nintendo have shown no interest in taking the responsibility to change trends.

          • Rinslowe

            This is not a silly idea. First party titles are where it’s at these days for Wii U anyway…
            But I think that although Nintendo are certainly accountable for the part played in lack of third party support. Third parties for the most part, haven’t exactly gone out of their way to optimise their titles to make the most of the platform…. Even so that’s partially understandable on their behalf. But so is the attitudes Wii U owners give back to third parties regarding such lack of parity and lack of support to a no’ of ports.
            It’s not such a simple issue.

            Personally though I think PS3 was the same last gen. Saved only by Sony investing in a no’ of decent exclusives. Most other ports, I can attest to them being mostly inferior to 360 as dev’s treated the learning curve in the same way. Basically they didn’t want to optimise due to the time and energy it took to do so, in an unforgiving commercial environment. Understandable to point again…
            Looks like if Nintendo really wants broad appeal, they’re going to have to follow Sony for a change and pay for it…
            But that’s the real issue, doesn’t really look like they’re going to budge on following that path.

  • Stoenk

    it’s still putting me of that they didn’t wait to include the third film

  • brian

    God, how I hate YouTube’s terrible compression. HD my ass.

  • Commander Raichu

    this is really cool

  • TheSkeletonMan939 .

    Personally, I think Lego games have been losing their charm since Lego Star Wars III (the Clone Wars one). The developers are trying to make the games so much more complicated than they need to be.

  • SP-937-215

    It looks like a Lego game.

  • Rinslowe

    Looks really slick….

  • http://www.android.com/ HyperTallih

    And… is it 60fps?

  • Sdudyoy

    My only problem with the Lego games is that they all feel the same, so I really don’t see the point of getting this one over the ones I already own, Lego star wars and Lego city are enough for me, but that’s not to say these are bad games, I’m just not interested in every one that comes out, and is it bad that I played Lego star wars games but never seen any of the movies?

    • Kenshin0011

      Saying you haven’t seen star wars is a crime punishable be death

      • Sdudyoy

        That wouldn’t be the first time I’ve gotten that reaction!

  • Corey Paul Evans

    thought i was going mad earlier read delayed but ordered it earlier, then read the delayed in NA untill 22 April and felt stupid lol

  • iamserious

    The comments section has become a place for freakishly long unnecessary comments and trolls. This game looks decent. I guess I should go to PS4 and Xbox1 sites and let them know I will be considering this game to extend my Wii U library. Lol

    • Rinslowe

      This is so on the money…
      And it’s not even about them migrating to another site of their true preference. It’s just about giving up being humourless concern trolls, hating on a “product” and it’s fanbase.

      Although, I myself am guilty of freakishly long comments, but I would argue their necessity… To a point.
      :)

      • Magnus Eriksson

        I think most of us do it as a joke. Its fun to stir up people who anyways gets crazy if they disagree. The real fans doesnt give a shit, or plays along as they understand the humour. I think most of us who plays a joke (at least me) are genuine fans of Nintendo, and loves their games just as much as anyone else. But, when you get death threats and namecalling for expressing disappointment for problematic things – its on like Donkey Kong.

        • iamserious

          Idk man I am a real fan and a gamer but sometimes I get tired of that type of humor.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah… well, I dont care if it doesnt please you :)

          • iamserious

            Was this one? Lol

        • Rinslowe

          I’m not talking about you mate. I see you’re just jaded most times and reflecting that through humour is your way to communicate that.
          I’ll never have a genuine issue with an individual like yourself. It would be a crime against reason.
          Other posters, which you may believe are being humorous, are in fact exercising their tendencies to concern troll the fanbase. And this is painfully obvious.

          True, if any poster resorts to such tactics as threatening another person, as fruitless as that may be online or otherwise… Then certainly this is unusual behavior. It happens though not just from one type of fanbase but all of them that I can see.
          Those strange individuals are just that and do not reflect the majority of posters on Wii U daily…

      Trolls? Unnecessary?
      One of these things is not like the other
