WB Games and Traveler’s Tales are at it again with another upcoming LEGO game. This time, it’s LEGO The Hobbit, and today’s debut trailer is glorious.
In spite of the epic music and insanely serious overtones, it wouldn’t be a LEGO game if it didn’t come with the series’ now iconic sense of humor. Watching dwarves hoist a giraffe across a room in a hobbit’s home is perfect. Strange, but perfect.
LEGO games are a guilty pleasure of mine. They’re well made, funny and often simple takes on classic franchises a lot of us know and love. I can’t wait for yet another entry in Tolkien’s extended universe.
LEGO The Hobbit will hit in 2014 on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS and PC platforms. Yep, like, everything.
