E3 2012: LEGO Lord of the Rings Video Game Trailer
Tt Games, the developers of the Lego series of video games named mostly after popular franchises such as Lego: Harry Potter have released a new trailer for their upcoming movie parody.
The game takes players back to Middle-Earth in Lego Lord of the Rings. The trailer, below, is a Lego themed parody of the theatrical trailer first shown back in 2000.
“We are huge aficionados of The Lord of the Rings franchise and are incredibly excited to put our special LEGO family-friendly touch on this classic fantasy adventure,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “We’ve taken what fans are familiar with and love about The Lord of the Rings films and combined it with the playful LEGO style, which makes the story and gameplay accessible to gamers of all ages.”
The game will hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and PC later this year. It’s likely a Wii U version will also appear, since Tt Games is also making the exclusive Lego City Stories for that console, but one wasn’t confirmed right away.
