    Lego Batman Confirmed

    I know 2008 is a ways out but for anyone who was/is a fan of the Lego Star Wars series and loves the caped Crusader here is something to look forward to with the Wii. I know my son is going to be excited and I loved the Lego Star Wars series myself so I'm going to be following this one.

    Official Press Release

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games will bring LEGO® BATMAN™: THE VIDEOGAME to next-generation and current generation platforms and the PC in 2008 with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment serving as the game’s North American publisher, including all sales and distribution functions.

    In LEGO BATMAN: THE VIDEOGAME, TT Games brings the world of DC Comics’ Caped Crusader to life in an entirely new way. Players can explore a richly interactive LEGO Gotham City as Batman and Robin, capturing infamous villains – and even take control of the villains themselves.

    “Batman spans several generations as one of the most popular DC Super Heroes, and LEGO BATMAN will appeal to several generations of gamers who grew up idolizing the Dark Knight and playing with LEGO toys,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Working with TT Games, we are confident they will continue their LEGO games’ success with this title, and we will expand our publishing endeavors with the introduction of the LEGO BATMAN franchise.”

    “We’re sure our fans will be excited to know that we have the same fantastic team at Traveller’s Tales responsible for LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Star Wars II working on LEGO BATMAN,” said Tom Stone, Director of TT Games Publishing.

    “There’s a special magic to the LEGO incarnation of Batman that makes him accessible to a younger generation of his fans," said Paul Levitz, President, DC Comics. “We look forward to the videogame version extending this fantasy.”

    The LEGO BATMAN: THE VIDEOGAME story unfolds with Batman’s greatest foes escaping from Arkham Asylum and creating mayhem throughout Gotham City. Tracking criminals, including The Joker and The Penguin, players will utilize Batman’s gadgets as well as build and operate fantastic vehicles in one or two player cooperative gameplay.

    I've seen the April fools argument a few times now on the forum and maybe I'm missing how the gaming world plays jokes but don't you think they would post an April fools joke on say April 1st and not March 27th when IGN posted the original article?

    For a little more evidence, I searched and found an article containing the official press release and added it to my original post.

    No you'd be surprised..these pranks have been going on for a while so gamers are just waiting for them.

    Anything posted on April 1st will be instantly though of as a prank. So the dates varies around the date now I guess.

    Wow...The Wii has brought me back to gaming so I'll probably end up being one of the ones that falls for the March April fools joke. Well here's to hoping it isn't a joke.
