The lights are on
Late last year, CEO Martin Tremblay revealed that LEGO Batman 2 would be the next installment in Traveller's Tales' long line of LEGO games. Now Warner Bros. Interactive is making it official, providing the first details from LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
The sequel is based on LEGO's new line of DC-infused toys, in which Batman shares the spotlight with a variety of other acclaimed heroes. Players will still be able to use the Dark Knight's gadgets while on patrol in Gotham City (including a new power suit, and a Hazard Cannon for sidekick Robin), but the sequel adds straight-up superheroes to the mix. Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Green Lantern are just a few of the heroes who will be pitching in to (temporarily) rid the world of the Joker and Lex Luthor.
"LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes builds upon the action and cooperative gameplay experience established in our best-selling LEGO video game to date, LEGO Batman: The Videogame," said Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games. "We're offering fans a rich and expansive Gotham City environment filled with cool characters, great customization options and plenty of surprises that families, young gamers and DC Universe fans can enjoy together."
When Stone mentions best-selling, he isn't kidding; the first LEGO Batman game has sold more than 11 million copies worldwide.
Look for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes this summer on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PC, Nintendo DS, 3DS, and PlayStation Vita.

LEGO Batman had so much to offer. LB2 should be endless now that we have the full posse at DC!
I love LEGOs a lot and there's no chance I'll miss out on this!
Lego Batman was actually kind of fun on the psp. I think I might get this. Thanks Jeff.
I haven't played a lego game since the original xbox. This looks like a great game to start playing them again.
This is awesome. LEGO Batman is my favorite of all the LEGO games. Also, I think it's a smart move that they hit all the consoles and handhelds.
"A rich and expansive Gotham City environment filled with cool characters, great customization options, and plenty of surprises" Hmmm, rich and expansive as in... OPEN WORLD!? Probably not, but I can dream.
Well it's no Arkham City, but this might be the shot in the arm that LEGO games need.
I'm excited for this. I always thought the Justice League cartoon would make a great Lego game and I think the LEGO Batman game is the best one besides the Star Wars ones.
I might have to get this, since I'm on a DC binge.
I very excited to get another Lego games after getting 3 games this last year! But what about a Lord of the Rings Lego game?
I have always found Lego games 2 be quite entertaining, especially Batman and Star Wars, so yeah this will be another smashing hit for TT Games.
This looks better then arkham city hahaha jk
This a very creative idea.
I sort of stopped with the LEGO games after SW LEGO 2, but This could be pretty fun.
