But now, an official trailer has been posted confirming all these characters and more! Here’s the video:
So what’s available here?
Well, as mentioned, Sonic is included in the game. How that works (or whether he’s actually getting a physical LEGO set) is yet to be seen. Other than that, we also have:
- Harry Potter
- Mission Impossible
- Adventure Time
- Knight Rider
- Lego City Undercover
- Teen Titans Go!
- The Powerpuff Girls
- E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
- The Goonies
Jesus Christ, that’s one hell of a list. Seriously, can you imagine if Smash Bros announced that many new franchises in one game? The internet would go absolutely mental with all the hype generated!
But while LEGO Dimensions is certainly impressing us on the crossovers, we do have to keep in mind one thing. Namely, why we’re getting so many new franchises in one go.
And that’s because unfortunately, LEGO Dimensions is as hot as it could be. It’s sold about $150 million worth of toys, sure. But that’s nothing compared to Skylanders, Disney Infinity or even Amiibo. And with Disney Infinity shutting down because the market is apparently a tad too difficult and what not? That’s sure to have gotten someone worried at LEGO or Warner Bros. Still, it is apparently selling more quickly in terms of time frame, so that’s one thing, right?
Either way, let’s look on the bright side shall we? All these awesome series are coming to the game soon, they’re all now available as LEGO figures, and the company’s issues are pretty much the gamer’s gain. It’s a pretty big win for anyone who likes these toys to life games, isn’t it?
But what do you think? Are you impressed by all the new series coming to LEGO Dimensions? Will this make you actually buy the game? Or are you staying away from toys to life stuff like this?
