Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group today announced the physical launch of The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame for Nintendo Switch™ system with a RRP of £34.99. The game is inspired by the newly released sequel, The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part, a big-screen animated LEGO® adventure from Warner Bros. Pictures.

Also announced were details about “Galactic Adventures,” the free post-launch bonus content coming to the game across all platforms in April. The downloadable content adds three new fantastical LEGO® locations – Dis-Harmony City, The Queen’s Palace and The Rexcelsior.

In the game’s Dis-Harmony City, the Justice League is dispatched from Bricksburg to fend off the Alien invaders. When their ship is swiftly destroyed and scattered across the stars, it’s up to General Mayhem to track down the Justice League and persuade them to join her.

The Queens’s Palace location features General Mayhem in another wild adventure where she returns to find Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi in a panic because a matrimonial ceremony is not going as planned! General Mayhem must complete various wedding preparations and calm the Queen to get the ceremony back on track.

The Rexcelsior content will tell the story of how Rex Dangervest befriended his Raptor crew aboard his flagship. Rex needs to complete various tasks to train his Raptors in fun and unexpected fields such as skateboarding and spaceship repair. Rex needs to get his crew in ship-shape if he wants to meet Emmet!

 

The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame is based on events that take place in The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part as the story begins in the desolated wasteland of Apocalypseburg where alien invaders have left Bricksburg in ruins! Emmet, Lucy and his awesome crew of companions go beyond their world to save their friends from the strange inhabitants of the faraway Systar System.

The LEGO® Movie 2 Videogame is also available for PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices.
