As San Diego Comic-Con begins to envelop pop-culture for the rest of the week, trailers for video games are beginning to release in honor of it. First it was Plants v. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, now Lego Dimensions joins the fun.
Lego Dimensions‘ latest trailer has quite a bit going for it. Not only does it feature our now standard heroes of Batman, WildStar and Gandalf the Gray – but now Lego Dimensions is incorporating some heavy pop-culture of its own – Doctor Who. That’s right, the good Doctor – and TARDIS of course, are headed to Lego Dimensions.
The newest trailer depicts Peter Capaldi’s current incarnation of the iconic character. He quips to Batman and friends as he introduces them to the TARDIS, saying “this is the TARDIS, it travels in time. I’ve met you three before, but you haven’t met me yet…” Dr. Who jumps into the TARDIS as we then cut to a thoroughly confused Gandolf begging “can someone explain to me what’s going on, please…”
Cue the Lego Dimensions Dr. Who montage. We see Dr. Who adventuring through multiple levels, teaming with characters like Scooby Doo and Shaggy, Doc Brown, Homer Simpson and more. Finally, we end with a quick segment where all the of the Doctor’s incarnations quickly appear indicating each version will be playable.
Doctor Who and the rest of the Lego Dimensions class travel to Wii U, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 27th.
