LEGO Dimensions appears to be the name of Warner and LEGO's first foray into the toys-to-life genre.
The launch SKU will contain the game and a LEGO Toy Pad (akin to Skylanders' Portal of power, which uses NFC to communicate with the toys). Also in the pack will be three figures – Batman, Gandalf (Lord of the Rings) and Wyldstyle (The LEGO Movie) – as well as a LEGO Batmobile and something called LEGO Gateway building bricks.
When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, Lord of the Rings and the LEGO Movie are swept away,” the blurb allegedly states.
To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex to rescue their friends and fight to save all of LEGO humanity.
Let your creativity be your guide as you build the LEGO Gateway to adventure, journeying through unexpected worlds and teaming-up with unlikely allies on the quest to defeat the evil Lord Vortech. Play with characters you never thought you could see in a LEGO game together, using vehicles and weapons you never thought possible.
LEGO Bad Cop driving the DeLorean Time Machine? Why not? The Ninjago Masters of Spinjitsu fighting alongside Wonder Woman... yes, please! Get ready to break the rules, because the only rule with LEGO Dimensions is that there are no rules.”
