Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer TT Games released LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for the Wii U this week. This marks the ninth system that the title will be available on and now even more people can see what millions of fans have enjoyed.
This sequel to the first LEGO adaptation of the Dark Knight universe has been widely praised as one of 2012’s best family-friendly game. LEGO Batman 2 totaled more than 3.5 million units sold globally and is now available for Nintendo’s latest console. A recent winner of a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award for Best Family Game makes the title a solid addition to the Wii U’s library.
Additionally, the GamePad allows for off-TV mode giving players the ability to play the game on the touchscreen. Off-TV mode also has a smart use in multiplayer by allowing one player to manage action on the touchscreen while the other plays on the TV without having to deal with cumbersome split screens.
In LEGO Batman 2, players take control of Gotham’s dark guardian as he tries to stop a nefarious plot hatched by a gang of super villains. With the assistance of Superman, his trusty ward Robin and other DC super heroes, Batman must face off against a fearsome rogue’s gallery from the DC Universe.
LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes is available now for Wii U. Check out the game’s Wii U launch trailer below.
