Warner Bros. have released a new trailer showing the "open world" of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, the latest in the LEGO series of games and most fully-explorable to date.
Watch as Batman and his friends drive, climb and fly their way through Gotham City in an effort to stop some of the most notorious villains from destroying the metropolis.
Batman and Robin make their return for the sequel but are this time joined by other famous DC super heroes including Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Green Lantern in some kind of Justice League-lite line-up. They’re up against villains Lex Luthor and The Joker amongst others – a quick check of the trailer revealing Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Bane and plenty more – across 500 square miles of city streets and famous fictional landmarks.
Expect to wield the good guy’s powers, fly the full array of “Bat” vehicles and, as you might expect, to reassemble bits of the city via LEGO blocks; but for now check out the trailer. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is due to release on 22 June 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, DS and 3DS.
