“My friend, where we’re going we don’t need… actually I have no idea what we’ll need…” A great finishing line to a solid new trailer for Lego Dimensions. Today it was announced that Doc Brown himself, of Back to the Future fame, will be made into a playable figurine for the upcoming Skylanders/Disney Infinity style Lego figure based title.
The new trailer is about half live action and features a short skit featuring Doc Brown within his infamous shed/lab. And yes, the DeLorean is seen in the background beneath a tarp. The latter half of the trailer is packed to the gills with in-game footage of Warner Bros. Interactive’s robust library of characters.
The DC heroes and villains are there: Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Joker, Harley Quinn, Two-Face and Bane. Both Wyldstyle and Benny the Astronaut from The Lego Movie make an appearance too. Gandolf and Sauron do battle, and even the Wicked Witch of the West makes a cameo.
The strength of Lego Dimensions‘ appeal is the sheer diversity of its possible characters. Already confirmed are entrants, vehicles, weapons and adventures from the following franchises: Back to the Future, Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Portal 2, Lego Ninjago, Jurassic World, The Lego Movie, Scooby-Doo, The Lord of the Rings, DC Comics, The Wizard of Oz, and Lego Chima. And that’s just what’s been announced as of now. Lego Dimensions is stacked to say the least.
