A new video has confirmed a previous leak that Portal, The Simpsons, and Jurassic World will be joining the already expansive line-up of properties featured in Lego Dimensions. Here’s the official reveal:

In the trailer, GLaDOS walks Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle through some Portal-themed levels, all while showing off the expanded functionality of the central peripheral: the Toy Pad.

The Toy Pad, which is used with the minifigures and vehicles, also has five modes that can be used to solve environmental puzzles. Shift mode works in a similar manner to the portals that Chell is so fond of. Place a minifigure on a colored panel of the Toy Pad. The character will subsequently teleport through the corresponding colored portal in-game.

There’s also scale, which allows in-game characters to shrink or grow. Smaller characters can fit in those hard-to-reach places, while a gigantic one can use pressure sensitive buttons. The three other functions are chroma, elemental, and locate.

Lego Dimensions will release on September 27 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. Check out our preview of the game here and a list of some previously-confirmed Lego properties here.
