LEGO Game Debuts Alongside Film

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group launched “The LEGO Movie” video game alongside the theatrical release of the film last weekend, which topped the box office.

In its North American debut, The LEGO Movie raked in $69.1 million*, giving it the second biggest opening of all time for the month of February, according to The Hollywood Reporter (Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ holds the record with $83.8 million). The film also did well overseas, with box office sales of $18.1 million* in 34 markets.

Based on the film, “The LEGO Movie” video game takes players on an adventure through LEGO worlds including Bricksburg and the Wild West of Flatbush Gulch. For the first time ever in a LEGO game, all environments are made entirely of digital LEGO bricks.

“We challenged ourselves to introduce a new element never-before-seen in any LEGO game and did that with environments made entirely out of LEGO bricks, giving players more authentic opportunities to interact with the world around them,” says Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games Publishing. “This is a chance for every LEGO builder to collect LEGO instruction pages and harness the powers of the Master Builders.”

“The LEGO Movie” video game is now available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation4, PlayStation3, PlayStationVita, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
