Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham announced for Wii U

Today Warner Bros. Interactive has announced Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham for the Wii U, as well as multiple other platforms. The game will be available this fall and is the next installment in the Lego Batman series. According to Tom Stone, managing director for TT Games, the team is looking to bring “an astounding amount of characters from the DC Comics universe to the next frontier with a new epic story, more gadgets, and unexpected challenges.”

The story revolves around Batman joining several other DC Comics heroes to stop Brainiac from destroying the earth. Brainiac has captured the power of the Latern Rings and is using them to shrink worlds to add them to his collection of miniature cities. Heroes and villains will unite to stop this new threat before it’s too late.

More than 150 characters will be unlockable as players progress throughout the game, including favorites like Killer Croc and Solomon Grundy.
