      “No games coming to Wii U!”, new game comes to Wii U. “I’m not going to get this game arghhh..”

      such irony

    I always loved the lego video games, i bought lego star wars the video game, wich was like the first one, in this particular series, and i loved it, since then i bought every single main lego game :3 hehe they are so fun ^_^

      the console versions are real fun. but the portable versions feels nothing like console versions.

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        yes i agree, i mostly played the console version!

    Insert Lego game formula here.

    You know, Lego Marvel & Movie the game are missing character pack DLC.
    For the hobbit they have said the third movie will be released as DLC… so I might hold off on getting the Wii U version until they show they’re willing to release DLC this time.

      That’s… Very wise.

  • haha the humor is so funny, I believe I’ll add this to my collection as well.

    I don’t understand why or how they manage to fit one small book into three long movies, with the Lord of the rings trilogy it made since, those where three long books, but they really could have gotten the Hobbit in one or two movies, I’m not watching these movies until all of the parts are out, same goes for the video game’s.

      Because it’s based on the events around the time of the hobbit. Check out the boat load of information included in the end of the return of the king novel. Tolkien wrote extensively about middle earth besides just the 4 main novels.

  • Jayden

    I wonder if there will be a DLC to this game so they can add in the third movie.

  • Joel

    I don’t know. This one looks a little flat to me. A bit dull and unappealing. I think I’ll skip this one.

    I wish more games implemented the separate screen multiplayer like these Lego games do. I will definitely pick this one up to play with my 5 year old
