Legos + Batman = Good Times!

After the success of the Lego Star Wars video games Warner Brothers, DC Comics, Lego and TT Games are teaming up to create a Lego Batman game that will follow the same model.

The hope is that Batman’s appeal to different ages, as well as the wit and humor of the game, will make it as successful as the Star Wars games.

The game is slated to be released in 2008, most likely riding the wave of the sequel to Batman Begins.

Ron and I rented Star Wars Lego II one weekend — and honestly we could not get enough. We finished all the levels, but only 43% of the game. It never got old — we snickered every time something blew up into tons of little Lego pieces. I am sure the Batman version will be a home run with the iFanboy community.


  1. You know, I read about this last night on my gaming websites and thought it was brilliant! I loved the Lego Star Wars games because they were so funny and charming. I can only imagine what they’ll do with this property…

    All I know is that Adam West NEEDS to be involved in this, either in the title role or as a villain or narrator or something. He is the king of Batman cheese, and I’m sure it could add a very humorous edge to the game.

  2. I’ve only played the Lego Star Wars game a few times (It’s brilliant) but isn’t all the dialogue just mumbly nonsense? I’d imagine it would be the same for this too.

  3. True, but maybe they might add it since it’s a new series. Let’s be honest though: either way this game will probably rock our socks.

  4. I got a Lego Batmobile it’s awesome, it’s like the first Lego I bought since the Star Wars ones start coming out which was a long time ago, I guess I’ll give this game a shot.

    I wanna get the bat cave someday, I bet you already have it Conor?

  5. He’d have nowhere to put it. But legos are always fun. No matter how old you get.

  6. I just had a thought. If it’s done right, a level featuring Clayface would be pretty boss.

  7. Hay I forgot Josh your Mr. Lego tie fighter :-), I totally agree with you Legos are fun so are Action figures. I did and still do want the big old Lego Star Destroyer not the one you can buy now but the one you could get from special ordering in Lego magazine that thing was massive! Think of the challenge!

  8. I played the first Lego Star Wars game more than any game ever. I beat every level; I unlocked every bonus gizmo; I built every ship; I collected every available point. When I was done, I took it out of the Playstation and squeezed it until one more smile came out. A++.

    It’s probably not great for my image to go online and crow, “I totally pwned that game for seven year olds! I’m a gamer!” but there it is.

  9. I don’t think I own any Legos at the moment.

  10. This announcement made me sooooo happy, I loved Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy for 360 a ton, and Batman is by far my favorite comic book character.

    So I guess it’s like Peanut Butter and Chocolate, only better.

    One question Conor, let’s sayt that it’s 360/PS3 only. Will this be enough to push you into the next gen?

  11. Nope. All I’ve got is an old Xbox. It better work on that or I won’t be getting it. 🙁

  12. I can’t wait for this! A friend gave me a copy of Lego Star Wars 2 just a few weeks ago and I played that thing every day until I got to 100%, so I know of what you speak Mr. Jimski.

    If you haven’t seen them yet, check out those short Lego Batman films at the Lego website. If the game looks like that, it’ll be great.

  13. I really never got into Star Wars Lego. I gave it a good go, but found the complete lack of any kind of challenge and repetitive gameplay very boring. Sure, it was cute, very polished and had a great pseudo RPG element to the unlockables, but it simply bored me: ultimately far too shallow.
