LEGO Batman: The Videogame, published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by TT Games, ships to retail stores nationwide today on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation 2, PSP (PlayStationPortable) system, Wii, Nintendo DS and Windows PC.

Gotham City’s most notorious criminals have broken out of Arkham Asylum and it’s up to the Dynamic Duo to stop them. Based on the iconic DC Comics’ heroes Batman and Robin, as well as many other memorable characters from the DC Comics Universe, LEGO Batman: The Videogame blends the wildly popular Batman universe with the versatility of LEGO building and the humour of the LEGO minifigure. Unlike any LEGO game done in the past, players can now explore their wicked side and play the game as the villains, not just the heroes.

From the rooftops to the sewers, players will experience Gotham City like never before as they choose to play from the perspective of either the villains, entering the game from Arkham Asylum, or the heroes, swinging into action from The Batcave. LEGO Batman: The Videogame features fifteen hero levels and fifteen villain levels – for a total of thirty unique action-packed levels. Play as comic heroes Batman, Robin, Alfred Pennyworth and Batgirl, or wreak havoc as The Joker, Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze, Two-Face and many more!

LEGO Batman: The Videogame features a completely original storyline, encompassing the lighthearted charm of LEGO and the multifaceted lore of Gotham City. LEGO Batman: The Videogame features co-op multiplayer allowing for easy pick-up-and-play. Players can also get behind the wheel of legendary vehicles, such as the Batmobile and Batwing. Enhance the abilities of the Dynamic Duo by unlocking Batman and Robin’s suits to help fight Gotham’s villains, or use The Joker’s electric buzzer to give our heroes a shock.
