The official videogame tie-in for The Lego Movie has been announced
Originally titled ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’, the outing comes from Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, the game draws similarities from the movie’s plot, seeing players take the role of Emmet, an ordinary, perfect average Lego minifigure who plays by the rules, who is mistaken for a Master Builder and seen as the key to saving the world. On his quest to stop an evil villain intent on world domination – as every evil villain should be – Emmet is befriended by a fellowship of strangers happy to help him on his journey.
Tom Stone, Managing Director of TT Games Publishing, is quoted in a press release:
“We’re thrilled to be able to give kids the joy of reliving Emmet’s adventures in becoming virtual Master Builders with The Lego Movie Videogame. Players will be taking on the ultimate mission to save the LEGO world and use their virtual building prowess to build unimaginable sets and creations.”
