Warner Bros Interactive just confirmed that a LEGO The Hobbit video game would be released in Spring 2014 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360, 3DS, PC, and Mac.

Apparently, the game will be based on the first two movies, and will have a lot of playable characters : Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, alongside all of the dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, and Ori.

Some of the locations present in the game : Bag End, Hobbiton, The Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, and Rivendell.

Finally, here's some pics :

Only the first two movies? That's pretty dumb. I understand timing wise they need to get one Lego game out every year but that's not a very appealing proposition.

Genuinely surprised there's a Wii U version.
Why? There's always been LEGO games on Nintendo consoles, don't remember the last time there wasn't one. Besides, it's probably just a straight port of the X360 version.

Added first pics to the OP, by the way.

sick of lego movie games

lego TMNT
lego simpsons
lego looney tunes
lego Mario

come on like
They're all good games so i don't see the problem. I'm playing through Marvel Heroes with my 7 year old son and it is a good game, not great but good and the amount of character and content in general is great.

Will be interesting to compare the Vita version with the PS4 version running on Vita. I believe this is the first such game to have separate PS4 and Vita versions, right?

LEGO The Hobbit 2/3

Come back for the next game to experience the full story!

All yours for full RRP!
Wouldn't be the first time.





Granted LEGO LotR, Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean did include events from each film, but trying to get everything they can out of each IP is what Traveler's Tales does. I agree it sucks, but I'm not the least-bit surprised.

I think Flower beat it to the punch.

It's gonna be weird to see the Vita SKU being a 3DS up-port when you can play the full game on it via Remote Play.

Ironically, a Wii version could have sold more than Wii U/Vita versions.
IIRC, TT mentioned during the reveal of LEGO Marvel Superheroes that they felt that it was time to finally move on from the Wii hardware since their ambitions outstripped the hardware. I know my brothers have gotten previous titles on the Wii, and they keep mentioning to me that they kept getting glitchier and glitchier.

Lego Marvel is fantastic so I'll take a look at this.

Usually stay away from these games as they are pretty dull pretty quick, but they got it good with Lego Marvel.

I suppose I'm biased on this one because I love HP, but I think these two justify having separate games.

Fantastic amount of content in both. Four films for each game.

Two Hobbit films for one game, and then the other film to fill out another game. Doesn't sit right with me.

Reason why it's the first two films is most likely because Lego Hobbit products initially were only planned for two films like it was originally planned. They may have been too deep into production to implimented the third in time.. Or at least have something ready while the brand is still hot.

Liked Pirates of the Caribbean and Chronicles of Narnia installments the most. I know Chronicles of Narnia technically weren't Lego games, but they were pretty much exact same game anyway.

Should've never included voice acting.

Well, Lego LOTR wasn't on Wii-U. And this is Lego Hobbit. So yeah.

I'll get it. Still wish I could get Lego LOTR too though.

They really couldn't wait another year and release a version with the whole thing? I loved Lego LOTR but I'll pass on this.

As mentioned before the Harry Potter games cover 4 films each and the Star Wars games cover 3 films each. The Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean and LotR games cover entire trilogies (Pirates has 4 too) and complete the "story" of the game. They don't leave the main thread of the plot hanging. This is more to do with whoever it is that owns the film rights not wanting anything getting spoiled for the third film than anything else, but they still should have waited to release them all together. If there were another two films coming then it might be comparable to the Harry Potter series, but there isn't. They're stretching the one remaining film to fit an entire game, whereas every single movie license released previously has had at least three films covered.
