Traveller’s Tales is busy churning up the best adaptation of The Hobbit; you would say that too if you check out how much fun it is in Lego: The Hobbit videogame. Being a joint venture of MGM Interactive and Warner Bros. the game is being developed for all the major consoles, and it just received a new trailer that shows how well they are doing.
Lego: The Hobbit is going to be an action adventure RPG where, as the trailer above shows, you the Dwarfs that will accompany Bilbo and multiple other characters that you will be controlling in the game. Watch it above to see how Thorin and Gandalf look.
Interestingly, Lego: The Hobbit tries to make Bilbo and his team’s venture into Smaug’s Lair something as casual as a heist. Now I am not saying that a Lego based game can’t do justice to the aura of Middle Earth; but you know how it is when we have those tiny characters as our protagonists.
Despite the fact that this is the third Lego based game in the past 6 months, something tells me you are going to want to get this.
Lego: The Hobbit is slated for release in the US on April 8, 2014 and in the European territories on April, 2014. The platforms that the game is being made for include Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
