An allegedly leaked promotional material suggests that a Lego game based on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit films could be coming next year.
The images are said to be snapshots taken off an instruction booklet for the 2014 The Hobbit Lego sets. The first photo shows wizard Gandalf the Grey with Dwarven hero Thorin Oakenshield and the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, while the later shows Bilbo’s hand holding the famous One Ring.
According to the information present on the images, Lego: The Hobbit is being developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Games. The same duo were also behind Lego: The Lord of the Rings, which in turn was also based on Peter Jackson’s famous trilogy. It was only a matter of time before the companies decided to release a Lego game based on Tolkien’s next adventure.
So far we’ve only had the privilege of watching the first part of The Hobbit trilogy. ‘The Desolation of Smaug’ is scheduled to hit theaters next month, with the final chapter to be shown late next year. If Lego: The Hobbit releases earlier than that then there’s a chance it will contain spoilers for anyone having yet to watch the final chapter.
If the rumor is true then Lego: The Hobbit will release next year for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS and PC.
