LEGO BATMAN 2: Super Heroes Due For 2012 Release

This time a range of characters from the DC Universe will be playable such as Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

Released in 2008, Lego Batman took the extensive cast of Batman characters, mixed it with the humor and co-op gameplay found in all Lego games, and created a radically different take on the legacy of The Caped Crusader .The fun game performed very well, and it's no surprise that publishers Warner Brothers and developers Traveller's Tales have announced a sequel, due for release next year. Reported by Bricktuts, Lego Batman 2: Super Heroes, like the original, will offer the same opportunity to play as the hero or villain in story mode, either solo or with a friend in co-op play. The main difference to the first game is that characters are not confined to the Batman stable, allowing players to choose from a range of characters from the DC Universe, such as Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. In some ways it should be titled Lego: Batman & DC Friends. The game is set for release in the Summer of 2012, to coincide with the release of The Dark Knight Rises. Lego are also planning a number of Batman related toy sets to tie in with the film.
