Details of Lego Dimensions, an upcoming toys-to-life game have leaked ahead of the official announcement.
Much like the Skylanders and Disney Infinity, Lego Dimensions is set to allow players to use their actual toys to beam characters into the game.
Three mini-figs including Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle will reportedly be included in the Dimension “Starter Pack,” which will also feature a Lego Toy Pad, Batmobile, and assorted bricks to build your own Lego Gateway.
“When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, Lord of the Rings and the LEGO Movie are swept away,” reads a description of the game, which is set to be announced later today. “To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex to rescue their friends and fight to save all of LEGO humanity.”
It is also thought that Back To The Future and the Lego “Ninjago” brand will feature somehow in the title, which has been listed by Toys R Us as being available for the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U console. The Starter Pack will cost $99.99.
This is all suddenly sounding very, very exciting.
