Back in December, when LEGO announced that they would be doing Lord of the Rings based kits, my first thought was, “And a LEGO video game as well, right?”
LEGO Kits Coming Summer 2012
Well, now I have my wish. Traveller’s Tales, LEGO, Warner, and a series of other companies involved in the whole thing have announced LEGO Lord of the Rings The Video Game!
A LEGO Fantasy!
There is also a video… ahead of which YouTube has placed a 30 second ad. They know what people want I suppose.
Direct link to the video here.
Now all that is missing is a date. I did not see one anywhere. Maybe it will be something for the Christmas wish list.
This is the reason I keep Kotaku in my RSS read… for every hundred Japanese trends or cos-play articles, there is a gem I never see elsewhere… like this one.
Coming Summer 2012
As foretold by prophecy… or at least by my nearly four year old blog post… there could be a LEGO Lord of the Rings Video Game. There will at least be LEGO Lord of Rings sets, but how can they do that and not a video game?
Actually, I would bet there are going to be three games, if any video games come to pass.
Anyway, I asked for and got LEGO Harry Potter… what else from that post might happen?
Probably none… I was being kind of silly. But of the most serious two I asked for, one came to pass and the other looks like a solid “maybe.”
So I’ll be spending the rest of the day muttering, “That’s so cool! Oh my God really? Could it happen? That’s so cool!”
